Gotcha, yeah I only use priority 1 through 5 with a kind of "Getting Things Done" mentality to file things away in their right place.

I don't like using letters unfortunately, but thanks for this potential workaround in that case.

Clearing priorities with a space and enter doesn't work though, and I believe this is a bug.
