Re: MM5 is a disappointing "fail" for a just-click-to-navigate user

Hi DTsig I don't find it to be a "dogs breakfast" (what ever that means) "Did someone really say that? Yes, in response to the question “how did the meeting go?” and apparently it was a disaster What does it mean? It really just translates to a complete mess, mish-mash, hodgepodge or something that ...

Re: MM5 is a disappointing "fail" for a just-click-to-navigate user

@Peke With respect, I was expecting a response that addressed the issues raised in Barry's post. I can see the potential for MM to be a great Media Manager but at the moment it's a dogs breakfast & at my age i can't wait months/years for it to be sorted out. Having said that i will follow your devel...

Re: MM5 is a disappointing "fail" for a just-click-to-navigate user

@Barry I think in this area I would grade MM5 as a fail. There are areas that need addressing IMO. Agree!! & why no response from anyone ?? Just to amuse myself i downloaded MusicBee loaded it with 500k files & guess what - It works out of the box, very fast, highly configurable & as far as i can te...

Sorting issue with Grid View

1. Collection > Artist then select Grid View = result - Artists appear in alphabetic order, which is correct 2. select an artist from the Grid & the albums belonging to that artist appear, but are in 'Year' order ?? Whereas i want them alphabetically sorted by Album Name. Is this a default sort arra...

Re: Poll: Media Tree Nodes with sub-nodes useful or not?

@ Barry I don't understand what either of you are saying, btw ... ? I don't believe this is an either/or discussion, unless there are critical technical issues which preclude a particular implementation. The Media Tree is an extremely simple & efficient way of locating information without having to ...

Add/Rescan at album &/or Track level

If I edit an album/track outside MM i cannot see an option in the MM context menu to add/rescan so i can update the changes in MM. Is it possible to do this without rescanning the entire library?

Re: Poll: Media Tree Nodes with sub-nodes useful or not?

IMO the media tree nodes & levels should be user defined. I must say I find it intensely irritating when application owners want to dictate how i view my own data.

Re: Alphabetic search in MM ?

@Ludek I didn't notice a specific response from you on this issue so i'm not sure if its included in your list of things to consider. Perhaps there is a technical reason for having to search this way but logically i don't believe that changing a View should require a different search statement. Afte...

Re: Alphabetic search in MM ?

Hi Ludek Item 1 - re magnifying glass, i probably could have worded that better. I was just pointing out that until recently i didn't realise you could right click the magnifying glass to get to the Options window. Re all the other search issues mentioned I confirm that I am doing a Contextual searc...

Re: Alphabetic search in MM ?

@Ludek After reviewing the preceeding discussions & playing around more with the search options, this is my current understanding :- 1. For global search you can toggle between whole word or partial as an option when you right click the magnifying glass. 2. In the Grid View when i search at a node, ...

Re: Art View/Browser View/Grid View - Why 3 Views for same thing?

Hi Peke
The 3 views have different names but they all look the same to me ie a Grid View. So i want to know what the difference is between each view.

Art View/Browser View/Grid View - Why 3 Views for same thing?

1. Select Collection It opens in Browser view
2. Select Albums (See all) . It opens in Art View
3. Select another node in the Collection say' Composers' . It opens in Grid View.

& just to complicate it the Browser View seems to have the Column Browser icon

Re: Alphabetic search in MM ?

@Ludek Based on all this discussion i really think you should go back to the drawing board on the 'search' function. Searching may not be a big issue if you only have a few hundred or less albums, but for people with large libraries (mine is 30,000 albums) a fast, comprehesive & easy to use search f...

Re: Alphabetic search in MM ?

Barry, I concur with your idea of unifying the search facility. Having two search locations is confusing imo. Usually i would expect one search location which comprised basic search options together with a link to what is generally named "Advanced Search" which contains the syntax for more condition...

Re: Alphabetic search in MM ?

@Ludek
Do you intend to also raise an issue re inconsistent search results in the views which may indicate a bug (see previous posts)
