Selections.. Active vs Currently playing
Hi~ My first post here 


I'm trying to quickly rate lots of tracks in a foobar playlist using the method here
http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....showtopic=71224
I have no problems with it, however there is something that slows the process down..

For example, I click a track in a playlist, it then becomes the active selection
But when I use hotkeys or gui buttons to change to the next/previous tracks in the playlist.. the active selection does not change to the currently playing track..
and If I use my ratings hotkeys at this point, it would apply to the currently active selected track.. not the track that's actually currently playing...  one of my hands. Going back and forth between keyboard and mouse to manually update the active selection to the currently playing track slows the ratings process considerably.

Possible solutions I'm looking for:

- A way of automatically changing the active selection to the currently playing track.
- A method of making a hotkey to change the active track selection in a playlist to the currently playing track.
- A way of running tagging scripts on the currently playing track rather than the currently actively selected track.

It should, do you have "Cursor follows playback" checked?

- A way of automatically changing the active selection to the currently playing track.
Double click the status bar.

You may want to try SimPlaylist, it has a rating column where you can click the stars to rate tracks (without changing the active selection).
