Album View: Difficult to Navigate?

Post by gcoupe » Mon Feb 11, 2013 8:47 am

When I first started MM scanning my music library, I was seeing the Album list grouped into sections headed up by the Alphabet letters. However, as more Albums got added, the heading letters vanished - and I now have an unbroken list of Albums - a great wodge that is very tiresome to navigate through by scrolling.

Is there a way to navigate quickly? By zooming out to letters of the alphabet, for example, and then choosing one to jump in to that point of the list?

Currently, navigation is very clumsy, and no better than the appalling Microsoft Music App.

Thanks.

It's a big problem, but not in MediaMonkey, but in system itself. Disabling groups is only crashes prevention because of system limitation :-(. Because of this we cannot use semantic zoom as well.

Hmm, well, OK, but I use Media Center Remote for controlling Windows Media Center on my HTPC - and that seems to have been able to implement Semantic Zoom. And it works very well.

I've now got version 1.0.1.29, and I'm still not seeing a semantic zoom feature. Should I be?

Semantic Zoom is disabled in MM for now.
