At the moment it is only possible to cancel the renaming of a playlist
by pressing either Enter or Escape.

I think it would be nice if this could be also done with a mouse click.
For example by clicking on the menu-/toolbar or in the area next to the notebook.

Sorry, but this is simply bad user interface design. It might make sense for a tablet interface where the user is only allowed to perform one task at a time. But on a multitasking-oriented desktop, canceling operations that the user has started just because the user has gone to do something else, is wrong.

#5 Updated by Thomas Lange about 12 years ago

I just noticed that Michałs implementation was not my intention.
It should be possible with the mouse to cancel the renaming (as by pressing Escape).
But until now the new title was saved.

Is this also bad user interface design?
In my opinion, the current behaviour is...
You can't expect that the user knows which key he has to press.

As I mentioned on IRC, I think it's reasonable to expect users to know the use of the Escape key.
