Stopping Player Locally
« on: October 02, 2017, 01:46:41 PM »
How do you locally stop the player now and get back to the player settings? There used to be a button that would become visible if you moved the mouse over the screen, but now it is gone.  Thanks in advance!

ESC does not work. I can drag the player off the screen but cannot get it to pause, stop or get to the menu screen. This is a very recent change.

I have not changed any settings in the player from the defaults. I just upgraded to the latest version, which is where I assume the change came from.

not the key Escape, but the keys E-S-C
please check with live chat if this does not work for you.

Interesting, that works very intermittently on my system. I am wondering if the app looses focus and thus doesn't receive the keyboard commands.  I will keep testing on my system and let you know what I find out.
