I noticed that even Francesco Forti complained about a couple of errors here today in the Web-page section of
Questions and Answers.

I have found a couple of small ones when using at least Boinc Manager 7.0.64.

First, in the Projects tab, I have two BOINC projects running right now.

If either one of the two projects is at the top in this list and I choose to show the properties for that project, it is being de-selected when returning back to the main interface using the cancel button. The same does not happen when I rather choose the properties for the second project in this list instead.

Also, choosing the properties for a task (both Seti@home as well as PrimeGrid) in the usual "Tasks" tab (the Third Box from the left), it says in my native language ("egenskaper for oppgavetask name"). Here, a space is missing in "oppgavetask". It should rather read "oppgave task", where task is the actual name of the given task as usual.

Hopefully these two errors could be fixed.

You might do better posting on the Boinc development boards as this is not a Seti@Home problem
