Bug Description

Lubuntu 18.10 Cosmic

In doing a manual install, I found out that if for a particular partiton, one erases "(no mount point)" and enters a custom mount point, that if one clicks on "OK" to finish editing the partition info, nothing changes on screen, the mount point column for that partition remains empty, and if one re-edits the partition, it again says: "(no mount point)".

If one instead presses <Enter> after entering the custom mount point, the mount point is then shown on the screen in the mount point column, and re-editing the partition shows the custom mount point.

[By the way: it is by no means obvious that one can remove the "(no mount point)" text and enter a custom mount point - one is presented with a drop-down list of possible options: "/", etc., but I only thought to try to erase the text and replace it with my own mount point because I had been used to installing with gparted, and knew that I should be able to do so, somehow...]

As of the 2018-07-12 .iso,

( newer calamares 3.2.1-1 and
the same partitionmanager 3.3.1-2 )

the situation is the same.

[In case calamares-settings-lubuntu is involved,
the original version was 2, and the current = 7. ]

Having now installed the released version of Cosmic, the same problem exists.

I can't reproduce this. I have selected and changed the value of the mount point to so many different things and no matter if I hit enter or OK, or hit tab first or not, it still results in the appropriate mount point being shown in the mount point column.
