Unexpected mouse behavior in file browser
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

When using Cura2 GUI file browser, the mouse highlights items on mouseover and keeps dragging on a single click until user right clicks. This makes it very easy for users to accidentally move directories.

This does not happen on all workstations. I have seen it happen consistently on Peacock and Eagle, both of which run Jessie.

I think that we should not allow any changes to the file system when one opens file from Cura2. It should be allowed when one saves the file (project) though.

@kaleb The file open dialog is a standard part of Qt, and depending on the platform it may use native dialogs.
We can't realistically fix this without writing a whole new custom file open dialog, and it then won't look native on some platforms.
You're on Debian - can you post a screen shot of the file open dialog? It may actually be using the Gnome file open dialogs on that platform.

This is what I see on Debian Stretch 9.2 with the default desktop.


I can't duplicate the problem you see - clicking on a file will select it. It might only be an issue on Debian Jessie.

@tranter , please try 2.6.38 It appears there was always an issue T1194 which is supposed to be fixed (temporary) now.

@kaleb: Closing this as resolved. Let me know if somebody else still have this problem.
