Artists/Title on the Track Properties Header

Post by gtbuzz » Wed Jan 28, 2009 10:55 am

Can we get the Artist and Title of a track added to the Track Properties header? The use case is that I'm in the Album Artist view and working on details (say adding Original Artists) or a custom field. I'm going through next track and get past the 7 displayed. The only way to make sure I'm still editing the correct track is to either 1) change the view to detailed list and make sure I can see the currently selected track or 2) keep switching back to the Basic tab.

Good idea. This should be an option to toggle though.

Although I understand the request and I think this information should be displayed somehow I think you will run into space issues for longer artist and/or track titles. That doesn't take away that the idea itself is a good one.

You are aware the MediaMonkey does highlight the current song you editing in the Track Browser or Now Playing window (depending on which one you used to start editing tracks)?

But it does not in AlbumArtTracksDetails when you pass first 7 displayed tracks (with green right arrow in properties window).

Now I get what is meant with first 7!

Maybe it should be auto-expanded in that case???

That would work. Currently if you expand the album and then modify a track, it automatically folds back up.
