  1. Open the search bar.
  2. Using macOS built-in Traditional Chinese IME, type some characters and press down arrow to open the IME phrase selection window.
  3. Press ESC to close the phrase window.

The IME phrase selection window is closed and I can continue to edit Chinese characters in the search bar.
