How to dismiss the drop-down in single-select and multi-select cases?
For single-select, the obvious option is to dismiss the drop-down on selection.
For multi-select, drop-down should stay open on selection, and can be dismissed with a button, or clicking outside.
Question: Will it be confusing for people to have two models of interaction side-by-side? What is the best strategy here?
Mind that cost of error ((wrong selection) is small. Nothing is saved, or processed, or launched into the space when option is selected.
