Action List Won't Disappear - SSMS

I've got a stubborn action list that won't disappear despite my best efforts!

Unfortunately I'm unsure what caused it, as to help you reproduce the error, but I'm left with an action list stuck on my screen obscuring some of my code.
I can open a new action list and that works as normal. I can also type in this phantom action list but if I use enter, backspace or the arrow keys those actions are carried out on my script, rather than the text box on the action list. I also can't select an action or use the escape key to hide the list.

I'll try to remove it by restarting SSMS later (in the middle of running through the script right now), but I thought the above feedback might be useful.

    Hi Tony,

    I'm sorry you're having this issue! It does seem very strange. I'm pretty sure that restarting SSMS will fix it, but if it didn't then let us know.

    Unfortunately there's not much we can do without more reproduction steps, but if the issue starts appearing more regularly then let us know and we'll take a closer look at it.
