Can't see album art easily with subdirectories

Hello,

I am experimenting with Foobar v1.3.3, and having difficulty seeing album art for any album that has more than 1 CD.

For single CD albums, there is no problem. The Flac files for a 1-CD album are all together in one directory which contains "cover.jpg". If I click on the album in the "Album List" view, the album art shows up fine. I am using the default "artist/album" view.

The problem lies only with multiple CD albums. For these, I have a main directory for the album, and a subdirectory for each CD. Inside each subdirectory are the corresponding Flac files for that CD and "cover.jpg". All the Flac files, whichever subdirectory they are in, have the same album metadata so that they are correctly grouped in Foobar as belonging to the same album. When I click on the album in "Album List" view, I don't get any album art *unless* I expand the album (click +) and select a track.

This is what i am trying to solve: being able to see the album art when browsing through a list of multiple-CD albums, without having to expand them and select an individual track.

I tried putting a copy of "cover.jpg" into the main directory of the album (*alongside* the subdirectories of the individual CDs), but it didn't work.

Any ideas?

Edit the search patterns at Preferences, Display to include the parent folder:

CODE
cover.jpg
..\cover.jpg

or:

CODE
$if(%discnumber%,..\)cover.jpg

Thank you very much for replying. I used "..\cover.jpg" and it worked fine.
