Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 160996
Track Pop-Down Menu doesn't appear
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:08 EST
Description of problem: The Track Pop-Down Menu either does not appear or
appears only very occasionally when clicking in the track title.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): audacity-1.2.3-5
How reproducible: 99%. I can occasionally get the menu to appear when clicking
on the track title whilst another application's window has focus (i.e. audacity
is behind another window).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start audacity
2. Create a new track of any type, or import audio to create a track
3. Click the track name
Actual results: The track name button receives the click (i.e. changes to
"pressed") but the menu does not appear.
Expected results: The Track Pop-Down Menu should appear.
Additional info: This may perhaps be a wxGTK2 bug.
Cannot reproduce. Double-click works for me.
You are correct - doubleclick does work. This is, therefore, a documentation
bug: the help file definitely says "The Track Pop-Down Menu appears when you
click in a track's title."
Single-click was also, I am sure, the behavior in earlier versions.
I don't think we should correct bugs in the documentation ourselves, so please
file a bug upstream.
I don't the the menu is supposed to be a double-click menu. All previous
versions of Audacity, and when I compile 1.2.3 from source, have a single-click
for this menu.
How does what is packaged in Extras differ from upstream? Perhaps it is related
to the "--with gtk1" compile-time option? When I build from source (upstream), I
get gtk1-looking widgets (and single click track menus). When I run the Extras
version, I get gtk2-looking widgets (and double-click track menus).
