It has to do with the fact that I don't like scroll bars, use both SIP and LCV (Lyrics and Comments Viewer)
and these particular panels don't show info horizontally very well.

1. I use one SIP panel to the left of a horizontally positioned Now Playing
(this SIP panel is sized similar to how the Art & Details view is by default)
2. I use LCV vertically at a little taller than the bottom half of the right side, below art & details...
3. I also shortened three panels and spread them across in a horizontal array
below the filelist to eliminate the use of scroll bars with all SIPs.

The three array panels are focused on right side info where the file list
would have to be horizontally scrolled to see.

The way I have it arranged, the space it takes up isn't too bad, but, of course, it's all relative
to the user.
So, the main reason is to eliminate scroll bars...interesting. ;)

If you can figure out a way to do that PLEASE post it here!!! :D

Also, read the request at the end of my last post and see if that is something that interests you.
[just a way to add any new fields]

SIP was inspired by LCV and the SIP developer has expressly stated lyrics and comments would
not be added. This is obviously out of respect to LCVs author. However, it does not mean that
individuals can't customize theirs. If anyone knows how to add fields to SIP, that would be
the bomb didly-A! I could cut it down to 3 or 4 panels, overall (instead of 5 currently).
If anyone knows a way, let me know. But out of respect to the wishes of SIPs developer, send
a PM about it.

Thanks. I found the setting about a minute after after I posted my question.....

The panel can display all playlists that contain a selected track. I want to display all playlists that contain anything by the selected artist and I'm about to find out if my rusty coding skills are up to tweaking the script without breaking it. Rule 1. Take another backup.... Rule 2, See rule 1... :D

Several panels are possible with the new button. I use 4 of them, configured to show unique things (overkill, I know 8)) .

I'm late to the party but I could use a little help if anyone still monitors this thread :)

I downloaded and the script and double clicked it. MM opened as expected and I had the "Information Panel 1" displayed, but un-skinned. I found the files were placed in

Code: Select all

C:\Users\Flip\AppData\Roaming\MediaMonkey\Scripts\SongInformation
I manually copied them to this folder and restarted MM

Code: Select all

C:\Program Files (x86)\MediaMonkey\Scripts\SongInformation
Now I see the panel skinned (Orange title, black text, grey background) and I have a button and menu option to show/hide the panel. But still I cant find anywhere to configure the panel or add another.

Any pointers?

Thanks!

Agreed, like what playlist a track is on. A feature occasionally requested be native to MM.
Also, the ability to custom size without consideration of additional hybrid components like artwork (Art & Details pane).
...love using it with the Eclipse theme.

Too bad. I don't have time to enter the album rating for all my albums and as my tastes change, so does the rating.

I don't believe, you'd have to write/copy the calculated rating (as a number) to a custom field and check that field in SIP settings

Fixed it, my stupidity really, the titlebar checkbox was checked off within the options for the song info add-on.
Thanks again.

Thanks again. Right clicking within the panel ? I don't see where I get to right click and get the option view > view titlebar.

I haven't used this panel so I don't know for this panel specifically, but with MediaMonkey panels it commonly is with right click > View > View Titlebar.
