Hi could you please elaborate a little more on how you achieved this layout? It looks like a custom Album and Tracks view with your own flavor of virutal / custom tags. But how did you get the large artist pictures to the left of the main panel? That seems to be what controls what albums are displayed in the main panel.

@hiccup is correct below.

I am guessing it is the 'Artists' view, with the width set to display one column, and 'show the tracks for the selected album or artist' set to: 'to the right of the main panel'.
Were you able to get it? I honestly don't remember at all how I moved the artist photos to the left.

edit:
I'm trying to replicate some of your arrangements and a question that has come up for me: you use the right panel to host the player controls. Although you can save layouts, it seems to me that if you remove the main player controls from the bottom panel in one arrangement, it removes it everywhere. Is that right? Is there a way around that?

Yes, that is correct and there isn't a way around it. The Main Player Controls either persist or they don't. For me, I don't really care to use them, because I want the extra display space for album and track details.

This layout has been updated to look much better since the previous version. Click to enlarge.

Been having a lot of fun with this skin I downloaded, I think I finally came up with a layout that works for me.

That looks very nice. Which skin is this?

Thanks a lot. I've been able to work it out with both your help and hiccup's.

Do have another puzzle for anyone willing to chime.



I'm interested in the Track Information on the right panel. Notice how the information underneath the album art is sometimes separated by lines and the info extends for several lines. Currently the configuration for Track information only allows for 7 fields. How might they have achieved this? Is skin manipulation or something else?

You can use a semicolon to mark new lines in the Track Information panels. Probably what this individual is doing is using the $Replace() function and with the <Genres> tag to replace slashes or whatever the split character is with semicolons.

Your layout looks cool but it appears you are also using a custom windows theme.
How did you get your windows to look like that?
