Keyboard shortcut repeats


I have a keyboard shortcut ctrl + shift + right to skip tracks. However, when I press it it always skips 2 tracks. After some trail and error, I guess it is caused because it is registering the keyboard down action and not the keypress. If I hold my shortcut, it keeps skipping songs even after I release it (Spotify probably cannot keep up). I get the keypress might be nececary for volume, but for skipping tracks there should be some wait period before being able to skip another.

I get this too but for play/pause. Whenever i hit my hotkey for play/pause, it pauses and plays again almost instantly (or vice verca) making it unusable.

If I leave Spotify/PC idling for quite a while, then try skipping tracks it skips between 2 - 5 at a time with a noticeable lag on all hotkeys (as if they are being repeated).

Win8 + 1.78 +

I am having this same issue. Toastify did seem to be working fine using a hotkey for Play/Pause and recently I changed the hotkey for this action and it has since been registering the hotkey twice, making the point of the Play/Pause hotkey pointless.

Got the same bug here so usually when i use my hothey for play/pause it pauses the music for a very short amount of time but then plays again also when i switch the hotkeys in my settings the hotkeys work 3 times so if i press my pause hotkey it does indeed pause the song but unfortunly with a short lag and now i am also skipping 3 instead of 1 song with the next song hotkey plsssss fix ^^

Also getting the same issue with repeated hotkey commands. Spotify and Toastify 1.8.3. It basically removes the whole point of the program for me.

To solve this issue, I had to uninstall and reinstall Toastify.

It's not ideal, but it worked (at least for the moment).
