naming a new playlist from a selection

I am not sure which version of beatunes changed the behaviour, when I select some songs in a list and then choose "new playlist from selection" or cmd-shift-n, then the songs are added to a new playlist, this list is named "Playlist" and the name field is set to editable and the cursor is placed right behind the word "Playlist". In earlier versions, the existing name of the playlist ("Playlist") was already selected, so that I just needed to type in the new name. Now I first have to select it with cmd-a.

Just a minor nuisance, but I liked the old behaviour better.

    Hey Peter,

    I have tried, but I cannot reproduce the behavior you describe.

    Can you perhaps sent a little video? QuickTime allows screen capture.

    Hi Hendrik,

    attach a screen capture; you see that after creating the playlist when editing the name, the default name "Playlist" is not preselected to be overwritten.

    Just when I made this recording, I had the idea to try the native UI mode, and there it's working. So this seems to be only happening in the dark mode.

    Thanks for the screen capture.

    Which version of beaTunes is this? You can find the version number in the About dialog.
