Re: View columns not behaving

Using Win 10 (updated to most recent) and MM5 2170 there is an issue with viewing columns: Installed 2170 and I have Artwork and Track Summary as first 2 columns. I then try and Choose Columns and remove these 2 columns then nothing happens. I have to right click in column header to hide. I then ad...

Re: Text wrap in summary column

a multi-line summary column option would be good here. It would differentiate mono from stereo editions, and "enhanced" vs original editions, and also multi cd albums.

Re: problems during download from GPM [#15133]

FYI: The "HTTP/1.1 403 Forbidden" errors and the self-paused items issue will be fixed in 2168. As for the UI instability (as previously reported): Isn't the issue that with the tracklist filtered using ColumnBrowser with Source col = "link+cloud" the tracks that are just downloaded becomes "downlo...

Re: Total Time

Would it be possible to have "Total Time" information for selected album/selected tracks available on the play bar (possibly as one of the customisation options). MM5 does display this information, but it is buggy .... ie. sometimes I see it everywhere, and other times it is missing, and can be dif...

Re: Text wrap in summary column

I agree this point ... I have added image because the OP was let down by this forum's buggy support for images. https://www.dropbox.com/s/ifylzfj1j448cbs/summary%20column%20truncated.png?dl=0 It would also be good if we could customise the contents of the Summary column, as we can for the the Select...

Re: 2170 - user error not surfaced = confusion

Apologies. I misunderstood what I was seeing. The problem remains, but does not seem to be related to the ini file. I can't get portable mode to work any more. As described in 1st post: install MM5 in portable mode accept offer in import from MM4 MM5 opens, and the db seems to be populated with MM4 ...

2170 - user error not surfaced = confusion

MM5 install doesn't seem to handle a corrupted ini file very well. I have two MM4 db files at the moment, while I doing something for somebody. They are in custom locations, and I have one, or the other of them, commented out in MMs ini file. I made a mistake with my ini comment line ... ie. I used ...

Re: In place editing and edit box length

Based on 14270 it's expected behaviour. Interesting ... a good feature IMO, but it doesn't do the job properly with a long tag, eg. path https://www.dropbox.com/s/0ec8w7d32p8w1m6/f2%20with%20long%20tag.png?dl=0 It selects just an arbitrary portion of the tag, and it doesn't grow the entry control t...

Re: problems during download from GPM [#15133]

Isn't the issue that with the tracklist filtered using ColumnBrowser with Source col = "link+cloud" the tracks that are just downloaded becomes "download+cloud" -- so they are correctly moved outside of the view (to the "download+cloud" source col). [snip] Is this what you are seeing? Probably that...

Re: contextual searches [#15077]

You could also look at how contextual searches interact within the Column Browser control. Steps: Set Media Tree to EntireLibrary>AllTracks display column browser with two columns: AlbumArtist, Album focus is within column 1 of Column Browser https://www.dropbox.com/s/7fc0jft9zt4syen/search%20and%20...

contextual searches [#15077]

I very much like the new design: tool bar now shows scroll mode criteria ... you can edit it I can now read the contents of the tool bar control, before it was red on orange, or some such hard to read thing there is clearing "x" control in the criteria box ... :D :D can toggle from filter to scroll ...

Re: 2166: Scan log

Scanning is at the beginning of sync, note that scan log isn't the sync log. The sync log is shown at the end of sync, but just in case of a sync failure (like failure to upload a playlist or file) -- as has been always the case for device sync and other tasks in MM4. Similarly the download log is ...

Re: 2166: Search UI still needs more work

Another possible "rule" could be the expand state of the currently selected media tree node. If it is expanded then scroll tree item, if it is collapsed then scroll the 'main view' item. As you are saying it is not black or white logic ;-) Sounds OK. Also any node, or sub-node, which has <2 subnode...

Re: 2166: Scan log

They are sequenced by the summary format for individual files. i.e. $if(<Artist>,<Artist> - ,)<Title> Thanks for the tip. I altered the setting to $if(<Album Artist>,<Album Artist> - ,)$if(<Album>,<Album> - ,)<Title> The report looks better, but I still don't understand the sort sequence Captain Be...

Re: 2166: Search UI still needs more work

No, because if you click a node in media tree then the 'scrool to matches' is meant to be performed within the media tree. i.e. if you expand a node with many subitems (like EntireLibrary|Albums with the 'showAllNodes' extension) or 'Playlists' node then it is expected to scroll the media tree item...
