Description

As a recent convert to (Linux and) darktable, one of the most frustrating issues I have is that if I mouse over a text field and left click to make that field editable, my mouse has only to drift outside of that text field for the ability to edit said field to be rescinded.
Would it be possible to code in some kind of behaviour that says "once a text field has been activated for editing, a mouse click or hitting 'enter/return' is required before that field returns to a safe mode?
If there's a hack for this that I'm unaware of, please set me straight! :)
Thanks in advance!

History

#1 Updated by Richard Wonka almost 2 years ago

can confirm

happily typing away in the text field, only to realise that the letter 'r' in the tag I was entering suddenly set all images to "rejected" - my work of culling and rating the marked images has been lost by darktable's surprising and fickle handling of keyboard focus.

Current behaviour is very uncommon and violates the rule of least surprise.

Please update your darktable version.
That was fixed in cd9260ef3ff4d6757801e17037b568b41d47a0c1 (which is in .2)
