Adding a custom field blocks the possibility of changing data in the card preview

I have a problem and can't find any information about it.
I use the method miro.board.createCard to create new cards described on the page

If I don't add cusftom fields i.e. leave the array empty ( fields: [] ) - by clicking the detail preview icon for the card - I can edit the fields (color, author, description, etc.)


However, if you add a custom field

fields: [ { value: 'Bug fix', iconUrl: '', iconShape: 'round', fillColor: '#E5E5E5', textColor: '#000000', tooltip: 'Caption text displayed in a tooltip when clicking or hovering over the preview field', }, ],

- in this preview all fields are locked

I cannot change them here.
However, from the toolbar I can do it (for some fields)

This bar allows you to change the fields: color, status, date, author, tag, etc. However, you cannot provide a description.


Why are the fields in the preview blocked after adding custom firlds and cannot be changed?

The description is a bit inaccurate, i.e. it is about card detailed view when the user clicks on the open modal icon on the app card preview.

The read-only mode is enabled on card item when something is added to the "fields" field - i.e. in this case in the card detailed view modal, the form fields (title, color, status, description, etc.) are locked and cannot be changed - the message In read -only mode is displayed at the bottom of the window.

Hi @William Bishop 
Any progress on this issue? Experiencing the same here and wasn’t able to find any workarounds.
