Hi there!

I know it sounds simple, but it's often overlooked. Could you try restarting your device? If that doesn't help, try a quick clean reinstall of the app. Just follow these steps.

If you're still having trouble, could you let me know the exact version of Spotify and the exact version of the operating system you're running?

I'll see what I can suggest next!

I've restarted and done a clean install before which fixed the issue for a good day. but the problem persisted on coming back to haunt me

 

Mac OS Mojave - 10.14.1

Hey @Neonwhitelion.

 

Thanks for getting back to us and for trying the reinstall.

 

That's odd! Does this only occur when typing in the search bar? Just to be sure, could you try:

  • clicking on one of your playlists and typing something in the Filter search located under the album art
  • right-clicking on a playlist and selecting Edit Playlist, and then typing something in one of the Description field?

Let us know how it goes! We'll be right here to help you further if you need it.

It's pretty hard to test what the problem may be as the typing backwards although a regular occurance doesn't happen every time.

 

It's definitely just the search bar though, I tried multiple times with the filter search and editing the playlist, but the problem only happens on the search bar :(

Hey @Neonwhitelion.

 

Thanks for getting back to us.

 

Could you tell us if you have any right-to-left languages set as your keyboard (e.g. Hebrew, Arabic), irrespective of whether they are selected or not?

 

Thanks! We'll be looking out for your reply :)
