When I look at the lines in my playlists then I like the current font(size) but not the gap between the lines.

From line to line there is a gap/space of approx 5 empty pixel rows.
This space gap is not reduceable by decreasing the font size.

I prefer to see as much songs in playlists as possible without scrolling.
So how can I reduce this space gap to only lets say 2 pixels?

The preferences dialog does not contain an option to adjust the line height.
I doubt that the line height can solve this problem alone. There must be an additional setting in the programs table control setup.

So is there any solution?

As far as I can the "Last played" timestamp is only updated when I play a song COMPLETELY.

When I start listening to e.g. the first 30 seconds and then switch to another song the "Last played" song is not updated.

Is this correct?

How can I change this?

If I play a song e.g. at least 1 second then the "Last played" timestamp should be updated.

Furthermore the "Last played" song seems to be NOT equal to the "Last access" timestamp of the underlying *.mp3 file.
The "Last Played" timestamp in Playlists show "Unknown" for all new dragged *.mp3 files.

Can I sync "Last access" file timestamp with "Last played" timestamp in Playlist?

Questions / Re: Particular meaning of checkmark column?
« on: November 04, 2020, 06:59:30 AM »
Ok, thank you.
One more related question:

I tried to move the checkmark column from the first, left-most position to the mid resp. the right-end of the playlist table.

But this does not work (as for the other columns).

Is this "special" checkmark column unmoveable tied tot the first position?

Assume I dragged a *.mp3 file with a Rating of 2 Stars onto a playlist.
The playlist column with "Rating" value shows 2 stars.

Now the Rating value in ID3 v2.3 header is changed (by another program outside of MusicBee).
The new value for 3 Stars is now in ID3 header. I checked this with Mp3tag tool

However the column in MusicBee shows still 2 stars.

Menu View-->Refresh does not update the "Rating" column
Exiting MusicBee and restart it does not help either.

So how can I update the shown Rating value in Playlist of MusicBee otherwise?

Or even better for ALL songs of the current Playlist?


Questions / Particular meaning of checkmark column?
« on: November 02, 2020, 08:04:07 PM »
There are various columns offered for display in the playlist.

One of them is a checkmark/tick column which contains a checkmark or is empty.

I like this for some purposes.
But I want to be sure that it has no side effects.

Does this checkmark has a special meaning or is just a checkmark?

Can I assign a checkmark value to other columns as well ( "custom1")?


Questions / How to turn line background of currently played song to grey?
« on: November 02, 2020, 07:57:51 PM »
I double clicked onto a song in my playlist.

It is played.
At the end MusicBee jumps to the next song in list (=next line).
And yes, the arrow left of the current song line indicates the active song.

However I would prefer to have the background of the currently played line in light grey because its easier to recognize.

Is this somehow possible?


Questions / Columns "Size" and "Date Modified" show N/A after dragging?
« on: November 02, 2020, 07:53:50 PM »
I created a new playlist.

Then I dragged some *.mp3 files on it.

Title, Artist, Rating and time are successfully recognized.

The columns "Size" and "Date Modified" show N/A

Why does MusicBee not fetch the information from file system?


Questions / Start with different "MusicBeeLibrarySettings.ini" files?
« on: October 22, 2020, 01:03:53 PM »
Assume I want to use (at least) two different layouts and MusicBee settings.
That means I have to use 2 different "MusicBeeLibrarySettings.ini" files.

Can I somehow pass the corresponding settings file (with relative path from installation dir) from command line like:

MusicBee.exe -settings =".\Library\MusicBeeLibrarySettingsStandard.ini"


MusicBee.exe -settings =".\Library\MusicBeeLibrarySettingsSlim.ini"

I read somewhere about a StartupSettings.ini (in older MB versions).
Can this be used?


Questions / Rename "Custom1" column?
« on: October 15, 2020, 07:04:28 PM »
Assume I added the column "Custom1" to my playlist layout for a certain purpose.

I want to store some unusual, private information in it.

However I dislike the label "Custom1".
Is it possible to rename it to e.g. "myotherinfo"?


Questions / ID3v2.3 vs ID3v1 handling: Show, copy, removal?
« on: October 15, 2020, 07:00:15 PM »
Some questions about the ID3 handling for one certain currently marked song:

How can I let Music Bee show if there is (in addition to ID3v2.3) an additional ID3v1 tag header and what (if present) the current values are?

How can I copy the tag values from ID3v1 to ID3v2.3 (only corresponding fields)?

How can I delete the ID3v1 header (but not the ID3v2.3 header?
