v3.0.5944:

I've noticed that if I have the music files layout up (center panel, shows Artists and Tracks), and have the Playing Tracks panel below, I can move the mouse to the Playing Tracks and "grab" the vertical divider between the Artists and Tracks above it. It doesn't make sense to me that I should be able to grab and move (sideways) that divider with the mouse in the Playing Tracks panel. Same thing happens if I have the Library layout up - Artists + Album and Tracks.  It seems that the Playing Tracks panel doesn't mask the divider's mouse grab-ability, for lack of a better term.

MB3 v3.0.5896:

I've got a tab I've labeled "Library" and the view is set to the Music library. In the center panel, I've got the Artist column, then to the right is the Album and Tracks column. Under the Album and Tracks column I've got the columns Artwork, Album, Album Rating, Disc - Tracks #, Time, Title, Rating. I've noticed that the Album Rating column entries are displaying for each track (seems odd to be per-track). I can't click any of them to set the album's rating. Highlighting a track shows the faint (unrated) stars for the Album Rating, but nothing happens when I click on any of them. Intentional?

Also a suggestion: Is there any way the Album Rating could be one set of 5 stars placed under either the Artwork or the Album entry? Seems like it would be a more logical placement.
i dont really understand your post. Are you using the Album and Tracks layout? If not it sounds like what you want. Otherwise post a screenshot as that might help
Here ya go:

With MB2, in the Navigator panel when looking at folders under a drive letter under Computer, you could hit a letter on the keyboard and it would jump the highlight to the next folder starting with that letter. This doesn't happen in MB3. Intentional? If not, may I suggest supporting a quick-search whereby I can type the first few letters of a folder's name in order to highlight it?
i have added support for that in the next update
Ah, wonderful! Thanks!

Additional info: If I click up to 4 pixels below the progress bar, it is accepted as a click in the progress bar. If I move away from the menu button and try clicking in the progress bar, it doesn't activate for the top 4 pixels of the bar. It's acting like the active click area for the progress bar is offset vertically by 4 pixels down.
MB3 v3.0.5886:

While the menu button issue is now fixed :), and it appears that the top part of the progress bar is now responding correctly to clicks :), I can still click up to 4 pixels below the progress bar and still have it act like a seeking click.

MusicBee Wishlist / Changes to the Analyze Volume dialog
« on: February 12, 2016, 11:55:39 PM »
I'd like to request a few changes:

1. Make the "adjusted calculated replaygain values" slider larger. It's difficult to slide in 0.1dB increments. An alternative would be to put inc/dec buttons on either side to bump the adjustment up/down by 0.1dB.

2. Add a Zero button to the "adjusted calculated replaygain values" slider. That makes it easier to reset the dialog from the last album it processed.

3. Don't auto-dismiss the dialog. Or add an option to auto-dismiss. I've found that occasionally, when I need to adjust several tracks' track-specific replay gain settings, sometimes the dialog will auto-dismiss even though a few of the tracks actually would clip (even with the alert checked on).

4. Would it be so difficult to add some logic to this whole process to fully automate the replay gain values to prevent clipping for both tracks and album values? As it stands now, I typically start with both basis checked and 0dB, then (if necessary) I have to manually adjust the album basis first, then go through each track (that clips) individually adjusting them. Seems like this could be totally automated.

I've noticed that the Analyze Volume dialog doesn't seem to update while it is operating. Once I hit "Proceed", it runs, never updates, and then closes when it's finished.
i cannot reproduce this. Just to be clear are you refering to the dialog window or the status bar ie. the volume analysis dialog is minimised
Yep. I'm not minimizing the dialog window while it runs. Interestingly, I've noticed that sometimes if I re-do the analyzation (run it once, change the calculated replay gain value, then run it again), it will actually update the status of each song as it's running. But it's not consistent.  I should also note that my files are on a NAS, not on a local drive on my PC. (Perhaps the lack of updates is due to network lag?)

Edit: Nevermind. I think I see what's happening. If "on album basis" is checked, the status for each song is never updated until all songs checked are analyzed, which sorta makes sense.

i could have sworn i could reproduce this morning (you are using the musicbee classic skin and window is maximised?)
Yes, and I should add that I've got "Skin Window Borders" checked as well.

now i cant and i cant see anything in the code that looks wrong so i will leave this unsolved

Thank you Steven for fixing the progress bar to be on top! However... that introduced a small bug: When playing a music file with the progress bar on top and with the main menu as a button, clicking on the part of the progress bar just under the main menu button not only skips to that part of the song, but also opens the main menu itself.
i cant reproduce this. Maybe a screenshot would help so i can take some measurements.
What font do you use and can you give me a rough idea how many pixels below the caption bar this happens?
Here's a screen snap:



The font is Segoe UI, 9.75pt for the top panel. The progress bar is 8 pixels tall on my screen (I've checked "enlarge progress bar height"), and as you can see in the snap, I clicked on the very bottom pixel of the progress bar.

Additional info: If I click up to 4 pixels below the progress bar, it is accepted as a click in the progress bar. If I move away from the menu button and try clicking in the progress bar, it doesn't activate for the top 4 pixels of the bar. It's acting like the active click area for the progress bar is offset vertically by 4 pixels down.

MB3 v3.0.5879:

Q: In Layout(1) -> top panel -> progress bar: Is there suppose to be a difference between "progress bar above play controls" and "progress bar on bottom"?
I ask because it appears that "progress bar above play controls" places the progress bar below the play controls - the same as "progress bar on bottom".
