“Upload sound from file” in Scratch 2 freezing

Sat Dec 16, 2017 4:40 pm

Hi,
When I try to “Upload sound from file” in Scratch 2 on a RPi3 the file open dialog opens but seems to freeze, or at least I can’t navigate to the other dir where sound files are or cancel or close the dialog. Mouse pointer moves around and time in the upper right keeps working so its Scratch 2 Dialog that stops responding. I have to cycle power to and re-boot.Probably a way to kill the application and not need to reboot but i don't know how to so I cycle power. As I type this I moved the mp3 files to the dir the dialog first opens too and it allowed my to pick a file and it processed or converted for 30secs but when I went to import the 2nd file the dialog froze so I had to reboot. Anyway I might be getting closer but does anyone else have this problem importing sound files?

Update, seems to be my wireless keyboard and it's touch pad. When in this dialog my touch pad and mouse left and right click buttons don't work. So I can't navigate around and it seems frozen. However the same keyboard's enter button and arrow keys do. So I can navigate with the keys and change the focus of the dialog buttons. Then hit the keyboard's enter button when I've highlighted the correct dialog button. Weird but I can now move through directories and pick open or close etc. All other Scratch 2 dialogs seem to work when I open and close projects etc, only after hitting the import sound...
