Bug: scrolling with mouse scroll wheel while dragging tracks no longer works

After upgrading to Spotify for Mac 1.0.2.6, I can no longer use my mouse's scroll wheel while dragging tracks to a different position in a playlist. This is an important feature when working with long playlists.

 

Steps to reproduce:

  • Create a playlist that extends past the bottom of the window
  • Click and begin dragging the first song on the playlist downward
  • Use your mouse's scroll wheel to scroll the playlist down. It will not scroll.

Hey @danslimmon!

Our tech folks have looked into this, and have decided this is expected behaviour and not an issue.

We'll treat this as feedback for now, and let the developers know this is something you'd like to happen.

Thanks!
