[Zotero 7 Beta] Select all when clicking inside an editable field in the Item Pane

Compare the two behaviours after creating a new item manually:
1) Write something in the Title
2) Write something in the Last Name field of a Creator
3) Click on the Title field
-> The whole text of the field is automatically selected

4) Without making any changes, click back on the Last Name field previously edited.
-> The cursor position stays where I have clicked

I guess this is related to the update of the header.
I am not sure which one is correct, but I would expect the result of a click to be consistent, so that I know what to expect when I start typing or want to copy.

  • The text should not be selected when clicking on a field. That's a bug related to the item being refreshed after an edit. We'll fix - thanks.
    so that I know what to expect when I start typing or want to copy.
    If you want to copy everything in the field, don't left-click inside of it first. Just right-click the unfocused field and choose Copy. That will copy all the text without making you manually Select All first.
  • Thank you.
  • Should be fixed now in beta 82
  • I confirm that it is fixed, thank you.
