I use the highlighting rules rather for shading specific tracks.
Just like greyed-out tracks (dead links) look like.

As mentioned here (http://getmusicbee.com/forum/index.php?topic=7781.0) this way I visualise tracks which I own on CD but which are not ripped to harddisk. So to say: "offline tracks".



EDIT: I forgot to mention what was intended by the initial post - the rule itself. It's pretty simple:
Color all ASX-files grey (.Ext is 'asx')

hi there,

maybe noob question:
where and how can I set up those rules?

I´d really like to change duophonic skin´s highlighting color

and the thingy with the small speaker icon is also very annoying for me

so here I see the solution in front of my eyes and don´t know how to implement it.

Any help?

Highlighting rules can be set under Preferences> Tags (2).
But it won't address any of your issues. You'd better talk to the skinner as that skin is un-editable.

un-editable as in "highlighting rules" do not work in this template?

(tried to highlight all - bitrate - smaller than - 192k  and it did not work)

Highlighting works for any skins (Maybe you didn't tick text option or didn't add highlight column to the main panel).
But both of your issues (highlight bar and speaker icon) can be addressed only by editing the skin.

thanks a lot!

adding the highlight cloumn helps a lot ;-)

Rule:
All | title | is | actual title

gives me a nice green square - can live without the highlighted bar for the moment

Hi everyone,
In the INBOX view, I 'm searching how to highlight with a "!" icon each time it's not ready to by automatically sorted and I would like to highlight the files when the folder contain tracks with many artist.
How would you do that?

thanks a lot !

didn't understand this, maybe my english is too poor

and I would like to highlight the files when the folder contain tracks with many artist.
do you mean folder of file system? install additional tagging tools plugin, open auto library reports, create new preset, add 'grouping (Path)', add function 'count(URL)', assign some virtual tag function id to preset, update it (save it).

create highlighting rule: virtual function id | is greater | 1000

or some other number instead of 1000

plugin:
