[REQ] Mood/Occassion/Quality toolbar [#17826]

Post by CosmicKnowledge »

MM4 had a way to create a custom toolbar that let me quickly assigned Moods, Occasions, Quality, etc. to a song or group of songs. MM5 has nothing like that. MM5 has a really slow and clumsy interface that takes 3-8x more clicks to effect simple changes.

In the Metro M (classic) theme, adjacent to the "rating" for a song, add single click icons that allow you to select Moods, Occasions, Quality, etc. for a song or selected songs. The click-out panel should let you select several applicable entries for each property at one time (e.g. Mood = select Mellow, Suspense, Wild, Upbeat, ...).

I know that Moods, Occasions, Quality can no longer be configurable as part of the toolbar. But as for drag&drop of multiple tracks to a particular mood: I've just tested that it still works within Media Tree. So workaround is to have another tab opened with the tempo/mood nodes expanded as the drop targets ?

That's a really slow and clumsy method that requires lots of extra clicking and scrolling. And, it doesn't easily let you assign multiple things separated by semicolons. Bottom line: this new GUI needs some significant rework to make it equivalent to MM4. Please add this feature. For me, a paid user, MM5 is a downgrade in basic functionality. BTW, I still can't sync to Android devices, months later.

How does Sync fail? Please start a separate forum topic for Sync. It works for me.

I already did a long time ago... one of your guys wrote in a bug report in your bug tracker but I'm not sure he adequately captured the real problem. He titled it "sync fails with big files" or something like that but in fact, it is failing even with small files. The Android client always hangs with "waiting for file to convert...".

Here's a log from right now: Log ID 1HCVC6R861

Are you referring this forum topic: https://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewt ... 64#p482364 ?
Can you continue there, but ensure that you are using the newest MM5 debug build: https://www.mediamonkey.com/beta/MediaM ... _Debug.exe
and generate debug log with DbgView started prior to MM5 start (item 4b here: https://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewt ... 30&t=86643 ) ?
Thanks!

I just posted both debug logs to the other forum. I just verified sync does not work with the latest versions of both MM5 and MMA.
