Re: Rebuild album art cache?

You can also toggle the Art & Details window off and on using CRTL+ALT+A. In most skins I think it appears in the lower right corner of the screen. Note that it is not the same as Show Art with Details or Show Art Browser with Details. If no image appears in the window, right click for a menu of cho...

Re: Default display

This is the sequence: 1. Start MM5 2. List view display with column browser hidden (Material Design skin) - Jazz node in media tree 3. Go to Black Monkey skin to retrieve column browser (not able to do this in Material Design) 4. Switch to Classical Music node in media tree - list view and column br...

Default display

I think I remember being able to set the display as List View with Column Browser enabled for a particular node (such as Classical Music) and have that be the "default" display when I return to that node after using another node (such as Jazz, a collection I created). Now in 1274 (and for some previ...

Re: 2147: Column Browser is broken [#15307]

I am using 1247. I normally use the Material Design or Monkey Groove skins and the "hidden" colum browser that Duke found wasn't visible in either of these two skins. But once I activated it in the Black Monkey skin it became available in the two skins I use. It's still something that needs to be ad...

Re: Problem adding new album

There are several ways to look for a "can't find" album that you have just added. I prefer to use Playlists - Recently Added Content and then scroll down to the date you added the tracks. This way you don't need to know - or guess - at any of the parameters, tags, or type of the tracks. If you added...

Re: Struggling to play ALAC / MP4

MP4 or M4P? I ask because you tie it to ALAC, which is an audio format like M4P.

Re: Contributing Artist Search Feature?

You can add contributing artists to a field called Involved People (the field is on the Detauls tab of File Properties. You can select which fields are searched through Tools-Options-Search. I normally have both Artist and Involved People checked for search since I pretty much don't care what role s...

Re: Discogs Tagger 5.63 (Updated: 2018-09-07)

XP uses only TLS 1.0 and that won't work with Discogs which, as noted here, uses 1.2. Since Micrsoft no longer supports XP, your chances of it ever being upgraded to support 1.2 are basically nil. There is a purported workaround at https://sockettools.com/kb/support-for-tls-1-2-on-windows-xp/, but I...

Re: artwork per album

You don't say exactly how you are updating the art, but on the Artwork tab of Properties you will see a checkbox in the lower left corner, Apply to all files in the Album/Series. If that is checked when you click Okay the art will be added to all the other files.

Re: MMW->MMA: change sorting of songs on playlists for sync?

Sort the playlist on MMW by Title (or whatever field you want), right-click and choose Update Play Order, sync to MMW, re-sort playlist on MMW by Artist, right-click and choose Update Play Order.

Re: Font too small (and crashing)

Not fine there. Much smaller than the Monkey Groove. White against blue background is always harder to read than black on white background. Not everyone has 20-year old eyes. But if you want to insist on making things difficult for users.....

Re: Font too small (and crashing)

Screen resolution is 1680 x 1050, which works fine for everything but the music player in those skins.

Font too small (and crashing)

The font size you are using in the music player with the Monkey Groove and the Black and Orange Monkey skins is too small to be readable. It is okay in the two Material Design skins.

Also, MM5 (2116) crashes whenever I change skins.

Re: Contributing Artist Search Feature?

If you want the Artist field to have only the principal artist for the track, say Erroll Garner (I'm listening to his newly released Nightconcert), you can add the other artists (say Eddie Calhoun and Kelly Martin), in the Involved People field which is on the Details tab of Properties - use semi-co...

You can probably guess why I thought that might be the solution. And it was no trouble. Thank you yarguy. You have helped me find the solution which is that my eyesight is failing.
