Dragging clips from the Playlist when View is set to "View as icons"

What is your operating system? Windows 10
What is your Shotcut version? 23.07.29. But the bug is present in previous versions.

I believe there are discussions about this old bug, but I don’t think anybody ever posted an official repport.


  • In the Playlist panel, set View to View as icons
  • Click once on a clip to select it.
  • Click & hold another clip and try to drag it.

Instead of auto-selecting that other clip, it’s the already selected clip that get’s dragged.
When the Playlist panel View is set to View as tiles or View as details, that operation works correctly.

This is fixed for the next version. It also includes a fix for toggling items in a multiple selection.
