can't quickly add new tasks

Prior to upgrading to the recent version of eM Client, I could type in a new task by just clicking on the “click to add new item” at the top of the Tasks page.  But, now it won’t work that way.  I have to click on the “New” button at the top left and create a new task.  I use tasks heavily and its becoming a chore to add new tasks that way.  Please bring back the ability to add new tasks the quicker way. Thanks
