The QE dialog parses your entry. The "+" icon creates a new Project and let's you edit the text field that is the Project name.
I can confirm the behavior you are seeing. I played around looking for a work-around, but found none (I'm new to OFO, but not to computers). It's a bug in that the behavior is not what the user (you) wants, but it's also a feature: the colon is a special character that has an assigned meaning to OFO. The solution is to have another special character that says to the parser "treat the following character as text". That's what I looked for -- tried the usual characters -- but found nothing.
How I see it, fwiw. Again, I am just another user, and a beginner with OFO.
