This new playlist view includes multiple grouping levels, album art, automatic column resizing, smooth scrolling, a unique scrolling mode that pins the topmost group header, clickable rating columns for tags and playback statistics, and a separate playlist search UI element.

SimPlaylist is meant for users who want the same look and feel as the original playlist view with some additional features, but without the typical configuration overhead that comes with other components.

Two quick questions for you...

1
Is there any word on the parentheses shading problem? At the moment, track titles with parentheses come out like this regardless of what I try:

Have You Ever Been (To Electric Ladyland)

Is there a way to get columns to respond to parentheses in the manner Default UI does, with its </<</<<< system. smile.gif

2
Is it possible for the album art column to adjust the size of album covers on an album-by-album/folder-by-folder basis? For instance, I have several albums with only 4 or so songs, but then some with 20. This means that there's a huge gap under the small albums. This can be seen below in the left-hand screenshot; it would be great if there were an option to change it to either of the right hand arrangements:


Is this a feasible addition to the plugin, or is it presently beyond the scope of Foobar? If the art height were tied to the number of tracks within a folder, I was thinking that one could perhaps specify a minimum album art height (say 5 tracks/100 pixels), with the maximum determined by the column width (in the above example, 243 pixels).

Thanks for any help/info you can give. smile.gif

I second this idea for another reason: I like to display cover art according to the record's original size. So I have 3 sizes: album/LP/Maxi (12" record), EP (10" record) and single (7" record). Obviously, I do this manually, though with some kind of automation: I have a default format for all my records covers but I resize EP and singles graphics inside a transparent PNG.

Your idea to relate the cover art size to the number of tracks would not help me because some albums have only 2 or 3 tracks, while some EPs may have 10 tracks. Here's a feature, though, which would be awesome: link the cover art display size to a tag, with an "if" statement somewhere. In your case, it would be the totaltracks number. In mine, it would be the record format. This also could be a specialized custom foobar-only tag. It would be easy enough to mass-copy one of our tags to this one.

No player can actually do this, and this may be interesting to only a few people. And it may be a nighmare to program, I really don't know. But I sure would appreciate it. cool.gif
