Just noticed that Auto-Shutdown doesn't work.

The text from searchbox should be highlighted (selected) when I click on it.

And this inconsistency:

Side player on top of the right panel:



Side player in middle of the right panel:



How could I get rid of that Track information title?

Nice call on the Artist panel to the left of Music Explorer.

what auto-shutdown settings are you using (from the auto-shutdown dialog window)

Another issue: the global search (entire library) doesn't work from Now Playing page (Playlist mode).

OK.

Any chance to add a shortcut to Now Playing page? I'm always searching for tracks to add to my play queue and Now Playing disappears from view when the search results are displayed. A shortcut would be very helpful. Or at least the search results to be displayed on the lyrics panel or on a floating menu like the suggestions you get from Google when entering a keyword. That would be great.

I used to have the main (centre) panel split into two with artist information (wiki/Lastfm etc in the bottom part of the panel and track list at the top. For the life of me i cannot get it to work with the new 3.0? is this now not possible. Now all i have is cluttered left and right panels.

i am not making enhancements to v3 so any new requests should go on the wishlist. However i dont know what you mean when you say the Now Playing diappears when search results are displayed.
The Now Playing Assistant provides a separate dialog window that allows playlist manipluation (alt-J is the default hotkey)

Let's say that the Now Playing page (Playlist mode) is selected. If I'm searching something on searchbox, the results are displayed on a Search Results page. But the Now Playing is not on foreground anymore.

I'd like a way that this Now Playing page stays in foreground (always on) all the time even when searching, and the search results are displayed in a floating panel or something. Searching for something disrupts the current view and I always have to click Now Playing again.

i suggest you post a screenshot and someone might be able to help. As a guess you are probably looking for the Now Playing Bar which can be selected from the panel layout dialog

The panels config start with that button near the searchbox (it's a square with some lines in it). On the window that it will open you can drag and drop all items that you (don't) want. I guess do you want the now playing bar under the files from main panel:

Another problem: double clicking on the Artist - Title from the player's controls (that wide horizontal bar with play/next/etc buttons) doesn't work as expected (Locate the file in library) if I'm on a different place than the Music section. Instead it goes to Music and only after the second double clicking attempt it really goes to the target.

Which node? I can't reproduce it.
