I cannot close an open dropdown menu (no matter which) by clicking outside the menu area. It seems to work only once after opening Vital’s UI. After that, I can only close a menu by selecting a menu item.
Environment: Arch Linux, Gnome 3.38 with Wayland
Doesn’t happen under Windows.
Right, should have mentioned this, problem appears only in plug-in versions:
- VST2 and VST3 in REAPER
- LV2 in Ardour
Standalone working fine.
Also, an important detail is that in wavetable editor, the issue as described above is not present. Instead, there is a different one: selecting items from a menu does not perform the underlying action most of the time.
Update: problem is gone when switching to X11 desktop session
$ echo $XDG_SESSION_TYPE
So, it seems to be a compatibility issue specific to Wayland.
Wayland has a lot of quirks to sort out before it’s generally usable (imo).
