[REQ] Customization requests Layout and Toolbar [#17826 #17560 #18019]

Post by FJvH »

Dear MM Team,

Recently installed MM5, and it looks great.
However there are 2 things that at the moment hold me back to fully switch from MM4:

1. I would like to see the Player either in the bottom or top panel.Currently it can only be placed left or right.

2. I read that the toolbar is no longer configurable. However the ability of adding actions like in MM4 was highly useful.

Apologies if these were already mentioned in earlier posts.

Thanks and b.Best regards.

1. Do you mean the Playing panel? The Player can be placed in the bottom, main, or top panel.

2. Good point; Tracked as https://www.ventismedia.com/mantis/view.php?id=17826

Sorry, yes I meant the Playing panel.
When it could be placed at the bottom (or top) more fields are directly available for viewing and editing. This is especially handy when loading new items to the library. It would then also enable to close the right panel and thus have a wider main panel.

You can use the Playing node to have the Playing panel content loaded in the main panel (Filelisting): https://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/WebHel ... laying/5.0

Thanks for the reply!

Yes, I think this can indeed work if you then open the respective library collection in another tab. For media management purposes it would have been nice to see both in one screen (like in MM 4), but I can see that such a mod would not be high priority.

Thanks again.

I had made the suggestion that you could pin different tabs that you use frequently. The idea was found to be good and should be implemented. Unfortunately, nothing has happened to this day.

Toolbars

Post by fe2o3yyc »

I cannot find a way to add toolbars at the top of the interface and to modify them in MM5. I found the ability add, move, and to configure the toolbars valuable in previous versions. For example, having the refresh command visible on a toolbar, adding stop after the current file in the player toolbar, etc. Similarly, the ability to remove unused items was useful for a streamlined interface. Shortcuts can perform some of these tasks but are much less convenient to me.
