Multiple issues compared to V4

Post by Gerhard87 »

Hello,
I have multiple issues in the new version, the released V5.0.0 and the current test build 5.0.1.2407.

- Selection of multiple files with mouse left click hold and drag does not select files like in V4
- Readability with any of the new skins is worse than in V4
- The selectbox created with mouse click hold and drag is always blue, which makes it almost invisible with the dark skin
- The properties window of a mp3 file is smaller and it cannot be resized. So I see less e.g. title and artist information, because the fields are smaller.
- doing a right click on a mp3 file takes about a second to show the menu. In V4 it was instantaneous.
- Adding artwork to a mp3 file requires more clicks, because the add button is gone and I need to open lookup image first and then browse

1) Sounds like: https://www.ventismedia.com/mantis/view.php?id=17763
2&3) That's done by Skins
4) Here the MM5 Properties is significantly larger than MM4 Properties. Do you have changed DPI/Text Size settings in Windows?
5) Yes, it is slightly slower
6) Yes, it has been moved. You can Drag & Drop Artwork into the Artwork tab of Properties if you prefer.

1) yes this is the problem
2) ok then I will search for a skin, with better contrast
4) I use 100% on a 4k monitor. I did not change text size.
6) this is a good hint, in this case, it is fine :)


I don't understand the logic how to provide screenshots. The user user with problem 1, was able to post a screenshot from i b b .co

New users can't post links, but if you add a space in it like ibb. co/ it will allow to post and we'll fix the link: https://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewt ... =1&t=97733

4) The screenshot seems to show the MM5 Properties larger than MM4 Properties.

Btw, 5) is known, it's tracked as https://www.ventismedia.com/mantis/view.php?id=17183

There's something mysterious causing the delay, but so far the priority has been on other bugs. It bothers me too, but we'll figure it out in time.

FYI: Will be fixed in 2408
