Playing list/now playing bugs

In the attempt to provide a playing list which plays shuffled in display order, and thus enabling the next and previous functions, while still at the same time attempting to satisfy those who wish to see the now playing list in some order other that what it is playing, several bugs have been introdu...

Re: sorting by song title issue

you need to commit your change via the save button which is in the tool bar of the main window, or in the context menu in the side panels ==> the main panel now return to the live view of Playing Queue Barry, where do you see a save order button in the context menu of the side panel? So many parts ...

Re: sorting by song title issue

As of now the only way to do this is to open the "playing" node in the main window... If I change the order there by drag and drop, there is no save order button, so this change is apparently saved automatically Such changes made in playing node are not reflected in the "Playing list&...

Re: sorting by song title issue

In a default installation under options, layout, the right panel contains the "Playing list" which has been most often referred to on the forum here as "Now playing", and the "Preview" at the bottom. The main panel does not contain any predefined elements, and usually d...

Re: sorting by song title issue

To me the two options seem so simple: 1) Play in displayed order - no exceptions, no original order. To play shuffled, the shuffle button "randomizes" the list with no change in mode. If you sort the list by any means, including column header, randomize, or drag and drop, it should always ...

Re: sorting by song title issue

I believe the OP is trying to play shuffled, while having his "now playing" window in "List" view sorted in title order by column header. This used to be possible in old version where shuffle was picked at random from the list, regardless of display order. In the current version ...

Re: sorting by song title issue

Given the decision was made to change now playing to play in displayed order, (shuffled or otherwise) I cannot fathom why they decided it should not play in Title order when you sort the now playing display by Title. It also appears that if you sort the now playing by a column header such as say tit...

Re: If we can send a man to the moon, can't we make column filter headers sticky?

Just for info, for me who has lots of complaints with the views issues, this part appears to work as it should. Whatever combination of columns I select for one playlist persists no matter which othe playlist I open, and persists after shutdown and restart. Of course as above it does not persist int...

Re: struggling with moving MMW5 to a new PC

Is this our favorite subject or what??? Lowlander, I fear you did not fully recognize the complexity here. Two different file types, one has changed path, and one has not. For freewheelin, if you need your playlists and statistics back, this might be a bit difficult to achieve. You may only be able ...

Re: Playback failed. Music file inaccessible in MM 5 Debug

If you still have your old database, and if you have copied your tracks in the same relative paths as you had before, you could try again, by re-pasting the old DB overtop of the new one, and then start MM but do NOT rescan. Then, you can try the method of re-assigning the drive. Find in the media t...

Re: Problems with Cue-Sheet generated entries (tracks)

MM causes a real mess during migration,
There appears to be some reluctance to accept this as an issue.

Maybe it is a tough one.

Re: Selecting some songs in playing list to delete them - all songs get removed

Same build, same steps, only the selected number of songs disappear for me.

Something odd though, in your video, I did not see the dialog pop up which asks if you want to remove from now playing only, from database, or also from disk. Do you not get that??
