Created a new category and then created another new category. The latter category was made as a sub-category. My colleague did not want that to be a child so it was selected and deleted.

This caused the entire project to be deleted.

Version 1.5.258.0

--edit
I have now reproduced this. It is not a bug in the strict sense. The problem, and I think it is a problem, is that the ability to delete a project is at the bottom of all project sections. Therefore if a user is performing an action and not reading the labels they could easily perform a project action on the section they are editing.

Please put the project actions (i.e. Delete Project, Disable Project, Clone project) on the Details section only.

Thanks

Thanks for the UX suggestion, that makes sense.
