Edit Formatting Styles screen vanishes when resultset exists

I've noticed a quirky UI bug when I take the following steps:
    1. Run any query 2. Go to SQL Prompt --> Edit Formatting Styles 3. Click 'Edit Style' (incidentally: you really need an "OK" button here somewhere ... I keep hitting this button by mistake because it looks blue and appealing and clickable, even when I just want to close the window). 4. Click a dropdown (GLOBAL --> Whitespace --Tab Behavior --> Spaces or tabs dropdown, in this example)

On clicking the dropdown, the entire "SQL Prompt - Formatting styles" window disappears, leaving me with just the dropdown items. I can still see and select a dropdown item. If a dropdown item is selected, then that disappears as well and I'm left staring at SSMS in confusion. Clicking SSMS brings back the dialog box.

From my testing, I edit the style before running the query, it works fine: if I run the query and then edit the style, it breaks.

System information:
    SQL Prompt Version 7.3.0.474 Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio 13.0.15700.28 Windows 7 Professional Service Pack 1 64-bit operating system

    Hi a.higgins,

    Thanks for letting us know - we had previously seen something like this and thought we had a fix/workaround in but apparently not in all cases! It's a bit of an odd one that looks like it's been fixed by Microsoft in Windows 10. We'll revisit it to see if there's anything else we can do.

    Thanks,
    Aaron.

    Hi a.higgins,

    We think we've got a fix for this in the latest SQL Prompt beta (7.3.0.522). Could you please give it a try and let us know if this is fixed for you?

    Thanks!
    Aaron.
