This means I must add another component ...just for editing standard tags !!?? ...No Thanks.It also means reducing the size of the Playlist Viewer layout to give screen real estate to a component which, to me, is not necessary.
This "in-line editing" feature, in my opinion, is the logical function of a well designed playlist viewer.
as I stated before, if in-line editing and horizontal scrolling are not in any way part of the roadmap for this component then that is that; I don't have to come to this thread ever again. ... By the way, does anybody here know of a playlist viewer for DUI which has these functions? If it is not existant, then I'm stuck with CUI for the rest of my fb2k life.
The added inclusion of those two functions would end up benefitting a much broader foobar2000 user base than just "DUI Flag Wavers".
I collect much Classical music and my playlist view preference requires an infinitely long (and scrollable) horizontal aspect.
more choice in presentational style and it would help build a bridge for CUI users to want to have a go at using DUI, maybe even saying goodbye to CUI forever.
Have a look at this screenshot of my CUI layout [imageshack.us] .
I have been forced to click this at least 100,000 times and counting...This is a legacy preferences page. Any changes will most likely take immediate effect regardless of OK/Cancel/Apply commands.
There is no reason to exclude those options from the design ...apart from ignorance.
I personally believe that a properly designed Playlist Viewer which is being designed to present masses of fine-grained information requires, AT THE LEAST, those two functions. There is no reason to exclude those options from the design ...apart from ignorance.
the simplaylist have any way to hide the column header?...
Dealing with albums which belong to box sets has a "choice" dilemma attached to it; is it an item or is it a group. One cannot display perfectly for both (using one playlist viewer).
Every column item you see has a solid reason for existing and is necessary, but there is no point in me going into the details.
Northpack' example layout using SimPlaylist looked nice, but in reality, in a massive collection of fine grained things, to me, it is useless.
