Support - (fb2k) / Possible bug in Adanced preferences
Last post by EpicForever -
I will also report it in Dynamic DSP thread, but as I am not able to determine if it's 3rd party plugin fault or main app fault - I am making also this separate thread.

I noticed that ReplayGain settings seem to be leaked into "Dynamic DSP" subsection of of "Tools" section in Advanced Preferences. This is how it looks like (see attached picture):

General - (fb2k) / Suggestion for some report output boxes
Last post by Porcus -
Since @Peter already is working too much with other requests :-o

Here is a screenshot with some output boxes. I included from foo_verifier since it is by Peter, and for completeness also the AR verification output, though I only have a very small remark on that.




  • File operation output and Converter output: As a playlist. Configurable columns. Can sort by columns. Track can be selected and played. Infomation can be copied.
    Good!
  • RG output. No nothing. Cannot sort, cannot select, cannot view Properties nor even filenames, cannot copy content.
  • AR verification. I don't see much room for improvement, except either a copy-to-clipboard or a Ctrl-a for "select all", as Ctrl-c works.
  • Integrity verification. That's in between RG and the others. They are not as playlists (hence I cannot choose to view path/filename), but in the very least I can select, view properties, ... - and, I can export the result.
    Annoyances:
    - If there are problems, I need to export to file to get them summarized. Otherwise I have to scroll. What about a "view suspicious"? What about a sort by status?
    - Always opens with same column size. Meaning, I always get "Decoded with minor problems" truncated to "Decoded with minor pr...", and that the information in "Reported length is ina..." is always hidden.
    - ... and I always want to read that "Reported length" thing, because a large discrepancy is a sign of something terribly wrong, but one within a second or so is "just normal" for mp3s. What about a "Inaccuracy (small) in reported length:" vs "Inaccuracy (BIG!) in reported length:"?
    - Cannot see paths without selecting each track, as said. What about "playlist-type" configurable columns to the right of the "verifier" columns?

OK, the box will be made wider.
Other than that, what do you think about getting rid of the weeks part and just showing how many days of music you have? It fit more text in less space without dropping much of significant information I think.

Dear Peter,
Many, many thanks for this :) . Simply brilliant :)

Personally I would prefer to not have the weeks part in this particular element of foobar's UI. Just days would be fine for me. But it doesn't matter much here, as when I look there, I am not selecting more than let's say 200 tracks, mostly 10-30, so I would rarely hit days counter. If I select whole playlists (and thus hit weeks), it means that I am concerned only on mass metadata cleanup, and total time/number of tracks in such selection are not important. That's just my very subjective point of view.

As long as you don't remove the week in "DURING LAST 6 WEEKS" queries :-o

The presence of a "wk" highlights that a selection has more than seven days, and thus prevents me from misreading "11 days" as one day or "111 days" as eleven.  No big deal to me. (There must be people whose fb2k library need four digits for days though.)
