place fields

Some place fields won't accept input, mainly Death place. Try to put a Township or county in and it kicks it right out?

What exactly do you mean by "kicks it right out"?
Do you get an error message?

You should be able to enter any text into any Place field of any fact.

There are times when i fill in place names ( can't think of them offhand anymore-sorry) and I click on the next space and it just disappears! No matter how many times or ways i put it in. when it happens again, i'll try to respond more timely.
