@redwing, i have sent you a PM in regards to potential enhancements for your skins

Thanks for the improvement!

I did a quick test, but it has an issue with indexing starting point.
For instance, if you start playing #5 track of a playlist, Albums[1] should be #6 track or the next album but it is always #2 track.
It happens with library filters as well.

Tracks[n] doesn't have the problem and always takes the next queued track as Tracks[1].

Thanks! That's fixed.

Another issue. "Field" element with Album offset returns just a random track from a random album.

Code
 
<element type="Field" id="Albums[1]" xAnchor="#Cover_2.10" x="0" yAnchor="#Cover_2.45" y="0" widthDock="x:#Cover_2.90" width="0" align="Center" font="Segoe UI" style="Bold" size="16" fg="0,0,0,0" mouseOverFg="0,255,255" onClick="PlayNow">
<child id="Title">
</child></element>

it shouldnt be a random track - it should be the first track in the album thats in the Playing Tracks list for that album offset (and is the case in my testing)
You might change the field to id="Album" as Title doesnt really make sense as is implemented

Did some more tests. It can work properly even for "Title", but the problem is it requires rerunning of the TM.

Try this test view:

Now start with an album with several tracks first.
Then the second track is the same first album's but it incorrectly displays over the second album. Third track too.
But at this point, rerun the TM. Then it displays all tracks correctly for displayed albums (first track of each album).
Again click on next button, then all displayed tracks go wrong. Rerun TM fixes it again.
So I think it's a bug.

yep. It should be fixed now if you redownload the same link

That fixed the issue. Thanks!

Probably the last one. With shuffle on, if you start a new track using Now Playing Assistant, track titles don't get displayed over album covers for some reason. Rerunning the view fixes it. This doesn't happen if you start a new track with shuffle off.
