MM4 - Hover over album artwork does not display details.

Post by Pathduck » Tue Feb 14, 2012 2:01 pm

In Edit Properties view, and Artwork, hovering over an image used to show whether it was embedded in a tag or linked, as well as file size. This functionality does not seem to work in MM4 b1462. Win7 Pro 64bit.

This was very useful to find file size of embedded images as well as check if files were properly tagged.
Please bring this back? :)

Thanks for the quick reply lowlander.

EDIT: Nevermind, I'm an idiot... turns out this is related to option "Show tooltips for context help"... think I disabled it since I'm so used to the options menu and the new context help popups in MM4 just got in the way :roll:

Would be better if one could turn off "context help" and still have "Show tooltips for obscured file properties" (under Appearance) still work. Looks like you have to have context help enabled to have any tooltips at all... let that be a feature request :wink:

MM4 - Tooltips for Context Help option overrides "Obscured"

Post by Pathduck » Tue Feb 14, 2012 3:05 pm

I posted about this in another thread, but figured the problem is actually not the same.
http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewto ... =7&t=64528

Problem:
The option General > "Show tooltips for context help", if turned off, also disabled all other possibly helpful popups controlled by the option Library > Appearance > "Show tooltips for obscured file properties".

Example:
I want to turn off Context help popups since I do not want them everytime I hover over something, and I know what buttons do by now, but I still want to see for instance Album Name even when the column is too narrow. And I still would expect to see file details when hovering over an image in the Properties > Artwork control.

As it is now turning off Context Help turns off *all* other popups, some of which are not immediately obviously related.

Maybe not a big issue, but I still figure it's worth a bug report (more an UI thing really) since Context Help is not the same is showing obscured properties, at least IMO... :wink:
