0.83: Selection with the keyboard controls is inconsistent

Post by jon_joy_1999 » Tue Dec 06, 2016 10:43 pm

When selecting multiple items with the keyboard, using Shift-Left and Shift-Right, selecting an item and then moving with shift-left or shift-right will select an adjacent icon, wrapping the selection when either end of an icon row is reached. Performing the opposite operation (e.g. shift-right after shift-left) will deselect icons.
Starting with the first selected item at the beginning or end of the row of icons, if the next adjacent icon selected is on a different row, then performing the opposite operation the adjacent icon selected is not deselected

For example, if you have 9 icons laid out on multiple lines, for example like

Code: Select all

1 a g 2 b
8 l k f
Selecting g, then selecting 2 with shift-right, then deselecting the 2 with shift-left, only g is selected.

The bug is when selecting b, then selecting 8 with shift-right then deselecting 8 with shift left, b and 8 are still selected.
This bug also occurs in reverse order.

:bugconfirmed: Thanks to your detailed description I could reproduce the problem. The important bit is that selection starts at the last thumbnail of the line and wraps into the next line.

I can confirm that the bug occurs when the selection starts at the end of the line and wraps to the next line.

I wasn't sure how the bug manifested itself. At first I thought it was inconsistent, because if you shift-right through a bunch of files and then shift-left back to deselect them, the bug doesn't happen, but if you shift-left through a bunch of files then shift-right to deselect it will occur on each row. The important bit that the selection starts at the end of each row is quite enlightening :D

The bug exhibited in version 0.87 64bits

The bug is on the 3rd frame of the first two images, where the first opposite shift doesn't deselect the selected file
