Spotify Search Bar - Text Entered Backwards

Plan

Country

- United States

Device

- MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Late 2012)

Operating System

- macOS High Sierra (10.13.4)

 

Issue

- Text is entered backward in the search bar.  In addition, one is unable to highlight the text with ⌘+A.

 

Steps to Recreate Issue

1. Open Spotify in windowed mode

1. Type text in the search bar

2. Highlight the text and without letting go, drag the pointer to the left and above the search bar

3. Begin typing and the text will be entered in reverse order (cursor remains at the front of the search bar)

 

Note: (Not every location one drags to yields this strange bug)

Hey there folks,

 

We really appreciate your patience thus far.

 

There's currently a new version of the Spotify app available for desktop users. It'd be very helpful if you could let us know if the issue persists after a quick reinstall of the app on your device. 

 

If it indeed persists in this newer version, let us know by adding your +VOTE and leaving a comment confirming the following details:

  • The version of the Spotify app you end up with 
  • Your device and its OS (operating system) version

We'll make sure to pass it on to the right folks, thanks!

+1. I started noticing this issue a month or two ago. I end up restarting the application which fixes the problem...for a little while.

Almost every time I use the search bar it enters the text backwards, and I have to manually click to the right of the first letter in order to get it to type from left to right. It has been doing so for a few months now. I've tried reinstalling the desktop app, but it's still the same. Extremely aggravating.

This has been happening to me as well.  I'm also running a Mac.

+1 here too - just tried trashing app and reinstalling directly from website and did not fix. I also notice that when the backwards issue starts my arrow keys no longer work either so I have to X delete entire search typed and start over

Experiencing the same issue as well for several weeks now, any idea where to report the issue so it can be fixed?
