3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: Playlist-Manager-SMP

Quick question: Why are right click actions restricted to the action button and filter buttons? The documentation says that right click also works on "list" (meaning the list of playlists?), but that doesn't seem to work for me, and nothing happens when I right click anywhere on the list.
Docs also explain that specific mouse shortcuts only work whenever there is not a button doing the same action. Section 27.5. I have to agree there is no note about it at 24, which may be confusing.

There is no point on enabling the settings menu by r. Clicking on all buttons, when there is a specific button for it. You are asking for too much complexity there and the tooltips are pretty clear about the available actions.

I'm used to right click opening context menus (that's the behavior in the rest of Foobar anyway), so having that on left click instead for playlists seems a bit counterintuitive and is hard to get used to. I assume there must be a technical reason for it?
Then just assign current L. click action to something else (?).

If I allow r. click customization then I also have to check if there is a button to open the same menu, which is simply too complex since I also allow buttons customization. I plan to do that at some point, but it has zero priority for me.  All actions are configurable. And you don't select playlists like tracks in a library, so you can simply set the l click action to show playlist and done.

Oh, also the double click timeframe seems a bit short to me (i.e. it requires a very fast doubleclick) - is there some way to make it longer? Like, a number I can increase somewhere in the scripts?

foobar2000 mobile / Re: Editing metadata for genres and composers
Last post by TomH1138 -
I haven't tried this on my own: the desktop version of foobar2000 isn't able to edit those files when you drag the PTP or MTP folder into it?

I don't know because I don't have the desktop version. I was just asking if the desktop version was necessary for this.

Thankfully, I'm now able to edit metadata. Apparently, I was lacking some kind of permission on Windows 10, but I found this article - "How to enable UPnP in Windows" - and it seems to have helped:

There are still a few I'm struggling with editing - possibly due to DRM? - but things are running much smoother now.

Thank you for the time and attention, pyr452!

P.S. I discovered that some of the files that were giving me trouble were PNG files. After I found JPG files and added those instead, almost all of my album cover art problems went away! :)
General - (fb2k) / Truncate albums in playlist
Last post by Maxdiken -
I am trying to sort of merge albums into one line so that I can expand it like a tree whenever I want. In the first screenshot you can see the Born of Osiris album is displayed as individual songs, whereas I would like it to be displayed as a tree, as shown in the second screenshot.
Thank you.
