Issue with Album List and Cursor follows playback

Hello everyone

I am using foobar2000 my whole musical life and there is one thing that bothers me. I hope I can explain it and you understand what I mean. In DUI I have Album List, Playlist View and Selection Properties. I have set everthing up that in Album List I can send an entire album with double click to the current playlist and start playback. I have 'Cursor follows playback' also activated, so that Selection Properties shows info of the current playing track. But this only seems to work, when I click the playing track in Playlist View. When I only make a double click in Album List the focus stays there and Selection Properties shows the tracks of the entire album. But that is not what I want. With the option 'Cursor follows playback' I would think that only the current track is shown in Selection Properties. But as I said this only works when the focus is on the current track in Playlist View. Is there an option to achieve this or a component?

Kind regards

In Preferences > Display > under Selection Viewers, do you have 'Prefer currently playing track'?

(Besides that, when you select a grouping (album) in a library viewer, it selects all tracks in that grouping. No way around that)
