Hello.

I use foobar2000 v1.2.2.
I want to carry out different setup of custom columns for every playlist.
For example, playlist1 has "type" columns, but playlist2 doesn't.
I tried to make a setup of custom columns, but the setup was reflected in all the playlists.

And I want to display folder names in custom columns.
I tried
%folder name%
and
%foldername%
in the setup of custom columns, but it didn't work out.


Please help me.

As far as I know, this is not possible.

Right, because you can’t rely on guesswork for title-formatting. Just read the guide.

two options I can recommend -

[1] In your Default UI layout, where you have the "Playlist View" component, replace it with a "Tabs" component (not Playlist Tabs) and add multiple Playlist View tabs. Then you can have a different column arrangement in each tab.

If you use Playlist Tabs, you'll want to add the Playlist View Tabs as a child panel inside of Playlist Tabs.

Playlist Tabs
--> Tabs
----> Playlist Views


[2] Switch from the Default UI to Columns UI, which allows you to specify different columns per playlist using filters.

To me, option 2 is much more desireable, but you'd have to learn a new UI and totally redesign your layout.

I had overlooked it. Thank you for the comments.

I see.
It seems not easy, but I'm going to try Columns UI.
