Oh, thanks lvqcl !
Then it most likely is
" Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package may also be needed if not already present on your system"
as Column UI 0.3.8.x (Optional) I have not had on the previous (1.3.9) neither and it ran.

can I apply a CUI playlist filter to all playlists in a folder?

Simple question for an old component. How do you set font size for this? The component itself seems to give no options.

Hai.
Looks like having foo_plorg window activated disables any drag and drop action other than drag and dropping an item to one of foo_plorg's playlists.

eg,
In standard foobar (with foo_plorg window/element inactive) I can drag and drop a track into windows explorer windows, other media players, audio applications etc.
With foo_plorg window/element active the only functioning drag & drop target that foobar respects is the foo_plorg window/element, but nothing else.

Is there any way to get inter-program drag and drop-ability back when using foo_plorg ?

Cheers.

While looking for solutions, looks like drag&drop did work between applications with foo_plorg:

Could it be Windows10, where this is not working for me, is playing a part in why this stopped working ?
Cheers.

Thanks for this useful plugin. Please help me see, I cannot find where to change its font...
You cannot (at the moment) .... the plugin inherits the default fonts from either CUI or DUI.
Is this still how foo_plorg is supposed to work? Because it doesn't work right on my setup. For some reason it's scaling down the font set for "list items" (I assume) to like 6 point. I had a similar problem with another panel, but that one was listed as an element in the dropdown menu on the Colors and Fonts menu in Preferences (in Display->ColumnsUI->Colours and Fonts, Fonts tab), and setting it to Custom resolved the issue. But there doesn't seem to be an element listed for Playlist Organizer, so I can't fix it the same way.

I also have a problem with the font used by Playlist Organizer. It seems to fall back to "System", even though I don't have that referenced anywhere. "Common (list items)" is Tahoma, as is "Common (labels)". The default (MS Shell Dlg) doesn't help either. The playlist view itself (and everything else) is updated, but Playlist Organizer is unaffected by this.

Note that I'm running foobar in wine on Linux.

Is there a way to modify the appearance of the dropdown arrows? They look horrid over dark backgrounds:

No.
Only standard windows appearance is supported appart from colors customization.

I think that this component has issues sometimes when the computer is low on memory(?)
I have a large number of playlist tabs, and usually the majority are in a subfolder called "Artist playlists".
I'm finding that I get a C++ error popping up at some point on my work computer (I will screenshot it next time), and then a large slab of those playlists have been moved into a folder called "New".

It's quite annoiyng to move them back, and I have to resort to default alphanumeric sorting because it happens so often now.

So, a fix would be nice (sorry I don't have a lot more info) but in the meantime I'm wondering where the hierarchy is stored? Is there a file I can backup and restore when this happens?

In regards to the previous query, I'm getting corruption of my playlist sorting/subfolders every day now.
I'd really like to know what file I could restore to get them back.

It's OK, I've fixed the specific problem I had - the lists are stored in theme.fth.
I've been swapping out two different theme files between home & work and that was corrupting the playlist organisation. I know there's a better way, but anyway it's solved for now.

If I do see the C++ error again I will screenshot it. Thanks!

I am sorry to report, but under foobar2000 version 1.3.15 this awesome component seems to be broken.

Any chance that you would be able to fix it?

Many thanks,
Goran

Hey @go0ran, it works for me. I wonder if you're working on a new machine? Don't forget you need that C++ redistributable package.

Hey @NEMO7538, here's what I sometimes see:
I forced foobar2000 to save its config (available when holding down shift when opening File menu) and first time I got the error again, second time seemed OK. So my Playlist Organiser window is still intact. Anyway, just FYI:

Hello everyone!

I was wondering, is there any way to use the title formatting nodes outside of the Playlist Organizer panel, such as in Panel Stack Splitter? I'd really like to show the current playlist name (%node_name%) along with number of the playlist entries (%count%) somewhere above my playlist. Is this somehow possible to achieve? Thanks for any feedback, much appreciated.
