Foobar library folder refresh

Hello, been using Foobar for years, very happily. Something weird has now happened - every time I exit Foobar, the folder structure which I've been exploring stays open. I.e., up until now, closing Foobar would cause all the folders to collapse to their default "closed" structure. Is there a workaround for this? It's a minor annoyance, but still an annoyance. Thanks!

Hey there,

This feature was added to Album List in 1.4 according to the change log. (Second time mentioned this month)

Perhaps in the next update, Peter could add some right-click options to Album List: 'Collapse all nodes', 'Expand all nodes'. (If not making it an option in preferences to 'Remember expanded nodes')

Cheers ;)

Yes, that would be ideal. Does the core Foobar software update of its own accord? I would prefer to downgrade if so. This is not a great feature for me, as all of my music is organised into folders, with multiple sub-folders. Thus, it can get messy if there's no auto-refresh type of feature (such as exiting).

Hey there,

No, there is no auto-update. (I have three different portable installs at once)

I thought of a workaround for 1.4 ... although risky, shall we say. You could copy foo_albumlist.dll from a 1.3.20 install to a 1.4 install. I tested, it seems to work. Although you may prefer to downgrade or wait for an update, as obviously there might be issues doing that.

Cheers ;)

Thanks! That works perfectly! Much obliged, that's a great workaround.

No problem. Hopefully does not get me in trouble with the local authorities, though. :-\ (Not exactly safe practices of advice, I know)

Feature request noted.
For now, old album list DLL should work just fine in new fb2k.
