Displaying columns etc.

Post by Laeotaekhun » Sun Jul 15, 2012 8:54 am

I've been using MM for a few years and recently downloaded 4, without experiencing any major problems.

I needed help to position the album art correctly, but apart from that I had no problems.

However, I now need help!

I restored my laptop to factory setting and had to reinstall MM.

Now, I cannot find how to display my nor mal choice of columns.

To start with I was faced with MM web and could not get rid of it - I seem to have done that now (I don't know how) but am faced with a black area, where my columns should be.

Please see screenshot below.

Any help would/will be very much appreciated

Does anything show if you right-click the black area?

Your columns are actually showing, but only in an extremely thin area between the media tree and the big black area. Almost like another screen has been stretched on top of the main library view.

When I loaded MM to try and answer your question the view had changed to this one

http://www.4freeimagehost.com/show.php? ... 9c91ff.jpg

Then when I tried dragging the columns it switched to this one

http://www.4freeimagehost.com/show.php? ... 5c7c64.jpg

Right clicking on the area of the view showing the musical note has no effect, neither does right clicking on the black area shown in the second image.

Once the second image appeared I was no longer allowed to drag to the right (only vertically) and the columns showing have been dragged to their maximum.

I hope that all makes sense!

I'm baffled!!

You need to go to the "View" menu and change from "Show art browser with details" to one of the other views.

Also your art & details window is stretched very large, so you should shrink it by grabbing the edge of the grey area (to the left of the disc/music note image).

Many, many thanks, all of my details/columns are now showing.

Could you, please, remind me of how to get my album art displayed underneath the media tree and also at the bottom right of the screen (next to the shuffle button) - every attempt I've made just ends up with the album art appearing in place of the details or alongside them.

Thanks in advance.

Enable View > Art & details. Then, in the panel that appears, right-click in it and "Show titlebar". You can click and drag the titlebar to move the panel whereever you like.
