For v3.2, i have now implemented the ability to save and load a custom layout that can be applied to a tab. The layout only applies to elements within the tab panels ie. left sidebar; left main panel; main panel; right main panel and right sidebar.
So that means you could have say a classical music tab where the track info panel shows different information, column browser only shows composer and arranged vertically, etc
I guess this functionality starting to border on getting potentially confusing between what a layout is and what a view is:
- the layout applies to which panel elements are shown, where, how wide and settings within the displayed panels.
- what doesnt get saved with the layout is view information ie. view information applies to the main panel fields that are displayed, how they are sorted and the type of layout (album and tracks, track details, artwork etc)
- also in the mix is you can show/ hide elements on a per tab basis, which again is not saved with the layout settings
Lastly i have added the ability to export and import a snapshot of the entire application layout settings at that point in time, so that includes the top/ bottom panels, music explorer, podcasts panel, radio panel, compact player, popup notification layout, etc
If anyone is keen to try it out let me know otherwise i might leave this a while before making it available
