Discrepancy between menus and how click events are handled to select the item

In some menus, the item selected will be the one who received a press down click event, but it should be the item who received a press up click event (when you release the click).

This issue occurs in several menus (but not all of them) in Studio One 3, below an example with a contextual menu against a track is just one of them.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Right-click on a track to spawn its menu. 
  2. Press (and hold) on "Remove Track" item, then move while holding to "Duplicate Track" item. 
  3. Unhold/Release the press (on "Duplicate Track" of course).

Expected behavior: Track is duplicated. 
Actual behavior: Track is removed.

In a more generic way, since most menus (not the main one with File, Edit, etc) are affected by this issue: Press on item A, hover over item B, release the press will have item A selected instead of item B.

Support told me this is considered a feature request, but I would consider it more like a bug to be fixed since that's the only application I know on this OS behaving like that with click events, and also because we have found different behavior depending on the menu inside the application itself.

Notes:

Studio One 3.3.3.41198
Windows 10 64bits
GPU AMD R9 270X

Thank you for the feature request. 

If anyone else agrees or disagrees, then please vote it up, or down. 

To vote:

In agreement click on the little blue triangle pointing up.

In disagreement click on the little blue triangle pointing down.

The developers pay close attention to those that are voted on the most. 

You are allowed one vote. 

Just viewing and agreeing but not clicking on the vote does not help the issue. 

Please click on one or the other.
