(Can I full edit? I accidentally hit Enter while in the Subject field and very surprised it let me post the empty report!)

Sorry, I believe this can be deleted, I would have caught it when retesting to write the steps. I think older versions didn't clear the selection when clicking on dead space (or maybe not when Audacious wasn't focused.) Maybe it's a GTK/Qt difference, either way don't think it's really a bug now as it also does it if you click on an empty part of the playlist.

Deselecting by clicking on blank space in the playlist seems to be intentional behavior in Qt.

But I don't think clicking on other dead areas of the window should affect the playlist at all. If I click on e.g. the status bar or an empty part of the menu bar, I don't see any deselection nor loss of focus. Was there a particular area of the window that you were clicking on when you saw this?

#3 Updated by Dale Powell about 4 years ago

I originally noticed it clicking to another window then clicking back onto an empty part of the playlist as I decided I wanted to delete the currently playing track and move forwards in the play list (which means you then need to reselect the track so is a little cumbersome.) Depending on what I'm doing in the other window I'd often use keyboard shortcut to switch windows but if my hand is already on the mouse I'm likely to use the mouse.

Agreed I suspect it's intentional behaviour in Qt and although a slight niggle and I can understand why it would be ignored. If I'd noticed it was only the mouse before my accidental posting (I noticed when checking everything to write proper steps) I wouldn't have published the bug report at all...

(ONLY on empty part of playlist, not also.)

Okay thanks for clarifying! I'll go ahead and close this.
