I had been unsuccessfully typing in the 12-words in my Daedalus wallet recovery phrase. I did not realize that typing those 12 words into the section would not accomplish the task. You have to use popup words...
Is there a way to make this more intuitive?
In How to check your 12-word Daedalus wallet recovery phrase there is an animated screenshot showing how you can enter your recovery phrase. Note that the UI will accept words as you type them when to enter a space or use the return key.
