Spotify Search Bar - Text Entered Backwards

Plan

- Free

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!

happens to me on my mac as well. I simply delete the text and retype, it works fine after that. Not a good permanent solution but it works in a pinch

Same here - and the arrow keys not working makes it so much worse, makes it all the more disruptive.

 I'm struggling with this for months now. So freaking annoying. Wonder when Spotify will finally fix this bug.

It seems that the issue has been fixed as I was not able to replicate it with the dragged mouse selection, which is how it happened. I'm still on version 1.0.96.181, so not sure what was it. Can anyone confirm if the issue persists?

I'm hesitant to say this, but I think it might have been fixed this week. I've had a day or two of uninterrupted use, using the desktop version extensively while at work. How's it been at that end?

Same here - I've had at least three days with no issues, so fingers crossed it's been fixed?
