Re: Album Art : MM looks up image even if I have feature turned off

I don't think it is a bug. It is working as they designed it. see here As described there, you can turn off most art acquisition via Tools>Options>Library>MetadataLookup. It is a bit coy about the "certain Locations" where art is looked up regardless of your setting. I have mostly seen it in the Alb...

Re: [REQ] Remember the level of Tree expansion

Hi David, 1. IYO what are the main benefits in using the Location node. One could ask what is the benefits of using any of the sub-nodes? ie. I don't use them, or the Media tree, for navigation much anymore. MM5 Views and the more upfront MM5 filter capacity has pushed them to the background in my n...

Re: Uploading Data after Sync

I do see those files on my phone in a Mediamonkey folder after the sync, but since I don't use MM on the phone, I wonder what they are useful for. Hi Rob, there is nothing unusual about MM sync to phone creating some extra files on your phone. I am not sure of all the reasons, but much of it is hou...

Re: [REQ] Remember the level of Tree expansion

You can use Pinned to save some shortcuts to frequently used locations. IMO the Pin facility. as currently implemented. is of not much use in this, or any, situation: You can only pick up Pins in Browser View There is no possibility to create a Hot Key to switch to Browser View There is no possibil...

Re: MM5 scanning old dirs

It is not immediately obvious how to delete unwanted lines in the Add/Scan panel. Maybe this is causing your difficulty?

You need to hover the cursor at the right end of the unwanted line for the location. That will make visible the trash can icon for the line.

Re: As MM5 owner, should I delete MM4? How to do that safely?

I've had version 5 for a while now and am getting used to it, but I am still getting hangs far more frequently than in earlier versions and I'm getting tired of the close/reopen rigamarole. I note that my Windows 10 Program Files (x86) folder still has a subfolder called [MediaMonkey] in addition t...

Re: Auto-exclude particular collection from playlists?

If you look Playlist tree node is outside connections and it is library based not collection based. So no, only way is to go LL way to create Auto Playlist containing just backup tracks/path and then use that playlist in criteria to exclude them. I still don't know what you mean. The fact that the ...

Re: Moving files under "folders" does not update database

I locate the folder I want to move in the left sidebar and often have two tabs open so I don't have to scroll between locations in the left sidebar. My experience is that best way to achieve this in MM5 is to close the left sidebar panel. The Folders, and the Location, node has a Folder Tree built ...

Re: MM5 equivalents/approximations to M4 features?

First major question I have is, how do I move the Playlist, Art Details (equiv?), and player panels around for a custom layout? Open View>Layout menu item. There is limited ability to move panels between locations. You move the panels by dragging their name, and the icon mouse icon will show you wh...

Re: 5.0.1 is unreliable about restarting where you were already playinng

Also check whether the podcasts with the errant behaviour have their Type set correctly. ie. tracks set to Music would behave as you describe. btw, what's with the attitude?

Re: Auto-exclude particular collection from playlists?

Could you make a Collection as LowLander suggested, which excludes your duplication drive. Then select that Collection in the Search control for each of your a...
