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.
SIP was inspired by LCV and the SIP developer has expressly stated lyrics and comments
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.
