Author Topic: Search Bar Question  (Read 1999 times)


  • Guest
Sorry if there's an answer out there somewhere, my google fu has failed me.

I recently downloaded this music player, and I really like it, but I am a bit confused by the behavior of the search bar. As I'm sure you know, when you search for a song and play it, it adds only the songs that came up for the search to the playlist. I find this really inconvenient, since I use this audio player on my computer that I use for work, and I'd like to be able to just type in a song name and have it play that song, but continue shuffling through the rest of my library after that song ends.

Is there any way that I can change settings or something so that it behaves this way?

Thanks in advance,
