Please help! I cannot view all my artists when going to 'Collection' because once I've searched for something the query never resets. I used to be able to search " " to refresh on a previous install. Thanks in advance and thanks for the best skin out there!

Open Facets and select 'all' in any column to load your library.

Thanks dude :). Is there any way I can make searching for " " reset the library filters or really just reset the filters in less clicks?

Any chance the panels on the library page could be resizable / hide-able? I'd like to simply remove the "artists" list and just view albums, ordered by artist, or by album name. Also given that the now playing page features 5 different views (playlist, info, artist bio, lyrics, and chart) would it not make more sense for those tabs to be attached to the right-hand panel directly (as that's the location of the content being changed). Just a thought. Finally- any chance the now playing art overlay could move a little? Have the translucent shapes pan around or something?

That lot said- absolutely LOVE this! I've moved from Xbox Music to an on-site personal library and this is what I've wanted MS to do to the Xbox Music for a long while- add features and scale the UI down a bit so it's not quite so chunky. This is perfect!

Panels on library page : I've been working on v1.3, which including a library tree panel on the left side so you can switch between them.
But to resize / hide-show them, there's a lot code needed to be adjusted, sorry.

Interface switcher buttons : I'll think about that.

Overlay image : The PSS panel (the one I use over there) only support static images. I only can make them move per second (say in one moment it will move 10px to the right, then 10px to the bottom in the next second),
so it's not gonna be smooth.

Thanks for the reply. Love the skin! Looking forward to what 1.3 brings. Any eta on release? :)

This is by far the best theme I've seen for foobar2000!

I have a few questions:

1. There is any way to disable the automatic download of covers/artists?
2. There is any way to change the file name that the theme reads for the artists? (I have a folder.jpg in every artist folder, and I want the theme to read them instead of download a new one with the "artist name.jpg".

I forget something:

3. What is the lyrics download folder? Can it be personalized?
FlipOut69 Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist

1. Honestly I forgot how to do that lol. I've been working on v1.3 which uses different method. Try to check on the other comments, I think someone already asked about it.
2. It's limited by the script I use to do the work, sorry can't do that.
3. Prefs -> Tools -> Lyric Show -> Lyric Saving tab -> find the option on 'save method' section.
