I tried to delete a couple of "favorites" today and realized that I can't. I am on 4.5 Beta 7. Is this a known issue? Anyone else experiencing it?

Hi Alabama

I have just tried it on 4.5B7 on Windows and it works fine.

So if there is a problem here it seems to be Mac-specific.

L4 Mac 4.5 Beta 7: Able to delete both individual favorites and folders from the Favorites tool.

If I remember correctly, you are on the Stable version. Perhaps this was fixed in one of the Beta releases.

Alabama was on the stable version but he has moved across to Beta (he says he is on 4.5B7)

So this seems very strange.....

Jack - I can't imagine that I am doing it wrong, but perhaps I am doing it wrong. [Cue the Princess Bride: Unless I am wrong, but I am NEVER wrong...]

What do you do to delete a favorite? I am control/option/command clicking all over the place. Is this something a log could help with? I'll try to get one up after lunch... [the boys just arrived. Gulp. "Done with school so soon?"]

OK. I think that I have narrowed down the bug. I went to my iMac to see if it was experiencing the same problem. I was frustrated when it worked as expected (Smile). It dawned on me, however, that I was using a different input device (a mouse) instead of a trackpad. On my iMac I tried to control-click to bring up the contextual menu, but it would not. FWIW, I tried option & command clicking as well. No go. I believe that this is where the bug lies.

Here is the log from my MacBook:

I wondered if this was the issue when I was testing it earlier, but I was waiting to get access to the other test Mac we have to confirm the issue is relevant to the Mac beta in general and not just the Lion OS I'm using before replying (our resident product tester has been hogging it all day! Stick out tongue)

I just jumped on there while he wasn't looking and confirmed that the issue is that the the ctrl+click method for a secondary click is not opening the context menu in that panel in the Mac beta.  I'll report it to Development.  I've tested a few other context menu locations, but they worked as expected; let me know if you happen upon any other areas where this is an issue.

Right click and select Delete from the contextual menu, but I see that Tonya is already on top of the problem. Yes

This issue should be fixed in 4.5 Beta 10.
