FS#13096 - Playlist Catalogue > Add to New Playlist misplaces caret

I found this on Creative ZEN, but I’d guess it is present on all players.

Playlist Catalogue > Add to New Playlist places the caret /after/ the extension , the default result of the user entering character is a filename having a different extension and hence unrecognised by RB.

User workaround: Click Up, Left, Left, Left, Left, Down

Proposed fix: place the caret at the end of the basename

Reason for closing:  Not a Bug
Additional comments about closing:  

kbd_input doesn't have functionality to move the caret anywhere but the end of the string

Proposed fix: place the caret at the end of the basename

Even better would be to hide the extension.

This would protect it against less direct inadvertent user edits too.

And it would also prevent any deliberate user edit to the extension, but I can’t see why anyone would want to do that, given any change makes the playlist inaccessible to RB. If there was a good reason, this use could be allowed by making the input control’s inclusion of the extension conditional on Files > Settings > Show Filename Extensions.
