Now press TAB on the keyboard - the input focus is not jumping from “year” to “month”. It is jumping outside and below the “Album Editor” - see screenshot:

Please make the date fields (Release dates, etc.) accessible by TAB as in Roon 1.7.

Thank you.


I can confirm I’m seeing the same issue. To add insult to injury, after pressing TAB a few times, the Save button can no longer be clicked. You have to Cancel, hit Edit, re-do your edits (being careful NOT to use the TAB key) and click Save.

@support can this be fixed in a future release of Roon? Would be great :slight_smile:

[Edit: Duplicate of TAB in Album Editor not working]

Reproduced with Windows desktop version. (Running under Linux/Wine, but this should not be causing it - it worked as expected with 1.7)

  1. Edit album
  2. Go to Release Date or Original Release Date
  3. Enter year
  4. Press Tab key

Cursor jumps to release date Month. Another Tab press jumps to release date Day. Hence facilitating quick editing.

The selection seems to jump “somewhere”, but not to release date Month.

  • A subsequent blind edit (when assuming that tabbing works as expected) might change something inadvertently.
  • To enter YYYY-MM-DD you must reach for the mouse and click the boxes every time for entering.

Similar problem exists for album and track Recording Start and End Date. Here, tabbing jumps between entry fields for Start and End

Thanks for the feedback! The ticket was filled
