Report-an-Apple-bug Friday! 19

This bug is Disjoint selections don't drop where you tell them to. It was filed on 2006-04-07 at 03:28 PDT.


Summary:

When you drop a disjoint multiple selection of songs into a position in a playlist, they will land in the position above the song that you dropped them below.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Create a playlist containing songs A, B, C, D, E, F, and G.
  2. Select any of songs CG, so long as at least one of DF is not selected.
  3. Drag and drop the selection above B.

Expected Results:

The songs land between A and B.

Actual Results:

The songs land at the top, above A.

Regression:

All versions 6 and later have this bug. I don't know if any previous versions have it.

Notes:

Contiguous and single selections are not affected. Dragging a contiguous or single selection in step 3 above will land the song or songs between A and B, as expected.

The direction of the drag (up or down) does not matter. The bug will happen either way.

Workaround:

Drag and drop songs one contiguous bunch at a time, or drop them below song B instead of above it.
