Weird selection bug (Q Mac)

Masterbluestar Member ✭✭

I tab from field to field when I have duplicated a transaction (for speedy entry of a repeating transaction) when the tabbing/focus moves to the amount, not the whole amount is highlighted, only a fraction of it. I can still start typing a new amount, which will change the whole amount, but it always throws me off as I think only a part of the amount will be changed (the one highlighted). This used to work just fine before. It seems to be a new bug.

Quicken Version 7.7.0 (Build 707.53335.100) on Sonoma 14.4.1, Apple Macbook Pro M2

    Yes, it's weird. And at times, tabbing into the amount field, nothing is highlighted, even though the existing text is actually selected. This started sometime last year. I've reported it, including a screen capture movie, and I know it's come up before here, but so far the developers haven't addressed it. I thought it was some small thing they would fix in a bug fix release, so I don't know if this is just under their radar, is actually a complex issue to fix, or is waiting on a fix in some underlying macOS framework from Apple.

    All I can suggest is to use Help > Report a Problem and submit this issue (including the screenshot). Perhaps it will land at the right time for someone on the development tram to look into it.
