Re: 2201 - Location subfolder send to/move only copies tracks, not subfolder

I am not the OP ... just saying that the OP's request is something that I have often wished for also... ie. the option to shift folder containers using MM, as well as facility to shift just files that were in containers Why don't you simply use MM to rip the CD directly to your NAS and thus creating...

Re: UI tweaks to improve discoverability

Re #1 and #2: Components like "player", "search bar", "menu bar", "preview" don't have the titles shown in the main panel as they are well known components that almost everyone can recognize. Yes, we know what a Search Bar is ... but which Search Bar? ... you have two It is not easy as you think .....

Re: 2201 - Location subfolder send to/move only copies tracks, not subfolder

I select a subfolder with some tracks in a Location directory and want to move the subfolder + tracks to another folder. The problem is that from a MM perspective, you are just selecting a group of files, not a sub folder, nor a hierarchy of subfolders ... ie. maybe you were in a specific folder, a...

2206 - This is still happening (dbox opens off screen)

I tried to open the track properties dbox ... MM5 appeared to freeze, because the modal dbox was opening (nearly) off screen

UI tweaks to improve discoverability

#1. Missing explanatory text Could this have some text , above the radio buttons, to explain who|what the "preview" is? .... There is nowhere in the UI, where the part of the UI affected by this control, has an on-screen title of "Preview". #2. Inconsistent names MM5 UI is already complex enough ......

Re: 2206 - search mode navigation options are inconsistent

For the MM4 users to realize how to switch to the MM4 like "Advanced search" view. OK, but those Search Mode menu sections are not consistent with other similar menus in MM5. And they are confusing IMO. See here where you have both menu styles clashing within a single menu. Actually both are incorr...

Re: 2206 - requires Gold licence to view the album artist index

In MM5: By default only the "Artists" node is displayed (which corresponds to "Artist & Album artist" node in MM4) and to display the "Album artists" node you need to edit the Music collection -- which requires gold. Apologies ... I have been on Gold so long, I didn't know that ... ie. the bit abou...

Re: 2206 - search mode navigation options are inconsistent

Contextual search of the global search view is not supported and in true does not make much sense, it would result in filtering already filtered view (by global search) That makes sense. In that case, since there is nowhere to navigate to, why have the Search Mode section in the drop down menu (see...

EDIT: Could you please generated also standard debug log (using DbgView) and PM it?

Issue #16021 was about gold modal window issue. OK, thanks for clarification. I appreciate being kept in the loop. As a tester it is difficult keeping track of all the tasks and sub-tasks. ... and delayed tasks ... and issues for which there was zero response. Maybe I am incorrect, but I don't thin...

this crash I am switching views ... the wheel is doing lots of spinning ... something looks clogged up Is related to the background process which obtains art from the Internet I think.

2206 - search mode navigation options are inconsistent

If I open the global search control (Ctrl+F), but don't type anything, I can see that the search drop down menu control has the option to toggle across to a contextual search. But If I type a search string, this option disappears from the drop down menu. I can toggle from a Contextual Search, to a G...

2206 - requires Gold licence to view the album artist index

By default MM5 does not display the Album Artist index ... there is an option to turn it on, but that action requires a Gold licence.

Is this sustainable? ... having the index defaulted on, like Artist, Album, Composer etc would be better. ... It was available in MM4 w/o Gold wasn't it?

2206 - MM freezes during long operations

I have reported this before. It is still happening in the latest release. I have some more observations to add. I loaded the latest version of MM5. Used MM5 to rescan my tracks, rather than importing data from MM4 db. It is a long job, so I did other things while it ran ... When the scan ended MM5 w...
