Currently its possible to set a keyboard shortcut to toggle between repeat off and repeat all but there is not shortcut to repeat one track. I use repeat one all the time so I think having a keyboard shortcut for that would be helpful. Maybe it would be one keyboard shortcut to toggle between the 3 repeat states? or maybe a separate keyboard shortcut for repeat one only?

Is there a reason why this shortcut was not added?

Probably because in the year-plus since you posted the original request, no one else has also asked for it.

Among the criteria that Steven uses in implementing a wishlist request are the popularity of the request and the ease of implementing it. I'm sure there are other criteria, but those two come to mind immediately.

I hope they do add it. Was surprised it doesn't work.

Just switched from iTunes to MB, srsly impressed! I should've known there'd be a better alternative out there, wish I'd looked sooner heh.

Anyway, just wanted to chime in on this thread. The Shuffle keyboard shortcut *does* cycle through all 3 of its possible states, so it was a little weird to find that the Repeat keycut skips one (just alternates Repeat Off and Repeat All). After a whole first night of fiddling and customizing, this is literally the only complaint I have - it would honestly save me a lot of clicking in the future if Repeat One via keyboard were fixed/added (and it's like, a 30 second programming change). But I'm really, really happy with MB so I don't want to sound like I'm complaining, I'm really not, this thing is awesome. :)

The (toggle: repeat one) hotkey skips repeat one. Is this intended or a bug? Makes the hotkey kinda useless, is there a way around this? Thanks.
