In my opinion there is too little space between the track number and title.

Couple options come to mind.
Add your own custom custom columns with similar titleformatting and change alignment justification.
Add your own custom columns with no titleformatting and insert between the two.

Edit: Best option just add a space before the second column. For example, for title: %title%[ {%track artist%}] just add as much space as you want in front of %title%

Any possibility of adding the ability of conditional display of art? Here is my intended usage for clarifications sake:

For a subgroup I have the following title formatting: $if(%radioshow%,%album artist%,) with display set to Artist/Text

I would like to be able to set it so that it only shows the subgroup when %radioshow% is present. Presently for albums in the playlist I get a gap where the subgroup would normally be. A picture is worth a thousand words:

After using it for a few days, I love how elegant and responsive this playlist is, but I find myself really missing the simple option to display a border around album art. Aesthetically it makes a huge difference for white album covers against a white background.

Also, a minor bug report: moving a subgroup item up or down doesn't apply to the playlist until you restart foobar or switch grouping schemes and back.

Frank! This is wonderful. The component is just what a lot of people wanted for a long time. Including me, of course.
Almost everything is there already and I am sure that the component will mature nicely in those corners where it isn't excellent already.
Thank you so much for your hard work! And. Keep on rocking!

Just a short question:

I overlooked the possibility of multiple lines in Header and Subgroup, now I got it smile.gif

I tried to insert multiple lines in the header group in several ways using title formatting and also the | character. So far with no success.
Can someone post an example of how to do this?

I'd love to display the front cover with the line break and the general album info.

Then see the back cover with the tracks.
Maybe in the future we will see the a way to display more than one artwork item. There is a lot of potential space around the playlist

There is one more thing:
I noticed that the resizeable header images will switch back to the original size when I brows in facets. Is there a way to define a size for them so they will switch back to that value instead of the very small thumbnail size they fall back to at the moment?

all the best

There is something i don't really understand about the opportunity to define subgroups. In the header configuration we already can set subgroups by multiple lines. So what is the real purpose of defining subgroups in a second place?

Another question: What does "Sim" mean?

Ah, i discovered the purpose! The subgroups are not displayed above the column but to the right of it.

@lvqcl
It is interesting to see how simplaylist is so much easier to use than esplaylist but also offers more concerning layout.
In that context let me say how absurd the feature is to display a playlist in a collapsable view or even as a crowd of album covers without the tracks so that the order of tracks in the playlist is not recognizable anymore.

The component doesn't seem to display album art in other formats than .jpg, even when the filenames "folder.png" and "folder.gif" are defined in foobar's preferences.

Edit: PNGs are displayed, not GIFs.

Does the foobar provided album art viewer display these images?

I'm a little confused by something. How can I group by path? I'm having an issue where I've got three different versions of a classical music piece that are all being grouped under a single album art (from the first version of the piece.) All three versions are in separate folders and have separate album art.

$directory(%path%) might work. For classical music try adding composer, conductor and performer to the group patterns, and maybe date recorded as well. That should give you a unique group title for each version.

Keyboard shortcuts with the modifier keys ctrl+alt or ctrl+alt+shift don't work for me with simplaylist, unless they are set to global.

Also +1 for allowing single key shortcuts like the original playlist viewer. It's a core feature which makes sense in certain situations. Like having left/right bound to contextual seek or space for pause etc.

Frank, could I request a feature to append items that are dragged into the playlist to the end of the playlist? This is a nice feature in other playlists; when dragging and dropping an album or directory into the list, it means you don't need to scroll down to the bottom of the playlist or worry about it being inserted in the middle of some existing track entries in the playlist.

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

The syntax help link in Simplaylist properties doesn't seem to list how to display a track's bit depth (ie. 24 bit). Is there a tag for this?

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

I'm not sure if that would be possible. As far as I'm aware, the only way album art is produced by Foobar is by considering directories (or possibly grouping); if it relied upon metadata, then each track would need to be processed individually, in which case Foobar would render an image for every song you have.
