My question is hard to explain but here goes - I have two Libraries or large music folders, one E:\media\music and the other F:\oldies\music, Now i want to add both into FB2k. I know that I can monitor both folder for changes in the preferences section. I'm using the simple Columns UI - so i can see the browsing pane - Genre-Artist-Album.
in DUI Facets can parse your current playlist, if that's what you want.
In CUI you could have at least two seperate folders in an album list panel so you can access both folders easily and files do not mix up in the playlist view. Would that help?I'm not sure what you mean by Genre-Artist-Album: are you talking about the filters?
What exactly is a "browsing pane" in CUI? Could someone screenshot me?If I were doing this in Album List or Facets, I'd simply have the two drives listed at the top level, like this:Code: [Select]$left(%path%,1)|%genre%|%artist%|%album%This is not the two-playlist solution, but this is how I'd do it.
I've tried to search for solutions for this before (I want my classical collection separate from the rest), but I haven't come up with a very good solution, so I'd also be interested if anyone has ideas....If you want to change your preferences, you need to change both. This can actually be a bonus: with classical, I have fields like %composer% %performer% %conductor% etc, which would otherwise be empty cluttering columns in my 'standard music' setup.
$if(cond,then) If cond evaluates to true, the then part is evaluated and its value returned. Otherwise, false is returned.
the following should workfacets > source = playlist, filter_1 = %path% HAS media\music, filter_2 %path% HAS oldies\musicjust use the filter when ever neededhowever, this solution seems to be very sluggish, at least on my setup changing the filter/playlist is accompanied by a very noticable delayfurthermore, depending on why you need to/how often you look up the source, there might be better ways
