Spotify Search Bar - Text Entered Backwards

Status: Not Right Now


- Free


- United States


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

Operating System

- macOS High Sierra (10.13.4)



- 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)

Same issue again . stil not fixed

it truly is quite unbelievable that 3 years and 15 feedback pages later it keeps on being an issue. Not limited to US, it's generic (shows regularly on my 2018 MacBook Pro with both Uk & Finnish keyboard settings). 


It is 2021 and this is STILL happening. HOW!!!! It's honestly astounding that this is still an issue. This happens to me at least once a day. At this point it's humorous.


But not really.


For f's sake please fix this. 

It is still happening to me as well !
