Description Of Issue

Roon quits each time I press caps lock (bluetooth keyboard, magic keyboard)

Hi @Enrico_Corvonato,

We’ve opened a ticket with our technical team regarding this behavior for further investigation. We appreciate the report!

@dylan: any news?

having the same issue in version 1.7 build 500.

I just moved from Jriver to Roon, this already happed to Jriver 25, reported and fixed:,122826.0.html

Please help with the fix, I normally use the key, it is annoying.

Here complete MacOS crash report:

If you need Roon logs let me know where to grab them from or generate them.

Hi @mavmcl,

The team is still investigating, but as a workaround, you can go to Accessibility settings on the Mac and remove permissions for Roon. After doing this the crash should stop happening.

Thanks @Dylan that helped, I can live without the media keys while a fix is delivered.

I’m also seeing this issue when pressing the caps lock key or any of the media keys.

Hi @JeezOPete,

The workaround suggested above will also work for you until we resolve this issue:

Hi @Dylan does this means 505 does not fix the issue? quite sure it does not as I do not see any reference in the change log.

Hello @mavmcl,

This issue was not resolved in Roon build 505. We continue to investigate and work on a fix.
