Spotify Search Bar - Text Entered Backwards

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

Operating System

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!

I have been having this problem since I became a spotfiy member over a year ago.  It doesn't always happen, but 1-2 times a month it'll occur randomly.  This has persisted over several spotify app updates and on different computers I have.  My colleague has the same exact problem, it is also intermittent in his experience as well.

It seems like the OS version has also an impact.

On El Capitain (10.11.6) with latest Spotify 1.1.3.259.g8172f63a the issue isn't reproduceable.

This happens intermittently for me. Selecting all and trying again usually fixes it, sometimes it takes a couple tries.
