Hi Greg,

Note that in nm-connection-editor a gateway of "" is
to leaving the field empty. Thus, if you edit a connection to have
gateway, next time when revisiting the connection the
is cleared.


That is true, but when I edit it again, it requires me to re-enter before I can save it.  Would it be possible to add this as a
feature request to not have to add a gateway address (for manually
enetered routes) at all in the GUI?

doesn't happen to me. Either I am testing something different then you,
  or you are using an older version of the GUI, where a bug got fixed

Can you describe exactly where you are clicking? And which nm-
connection-editor version are you using? Or is it gnome-control-center?
