Weird. I thought if "Switch to Album and Tracks layout when drilling-down viewing the albums for a selected artist" in the configuration panel wasn't checked
it already did work the way. Now I can't actually see what that checkbox does - maybe it's broken.
If I'm mistaken and this is a new feature to be implemented, I think it should be optional. Otherwise there will be no way of selecting individual tracks in Artwork view without enabling the "Show album tracks at the bottom of the main panel checkbox". Kinda important to still be able to do that, especially for compilations. As per my suggestion in another thread, perhaps double-clicking an album cover with the Alt, Shift or Ctrl keys held down could Play the album, Queue it next or Queue it last, respectively.
For now, if you hover over an album cover, a Play button that appears that will let you play the whole album, but being able to double-click the album cover would provide a bigger target.
Bee excellent to each other...
