It's great that you're still developing foobox. But I've found few bugs in new UI. First - scrollbar for media library does not work - there's a lot of scrolling now :( Optionally, you could integrate it with keyboard: if I press "M", it would take me to "Megadeth" and so on :> And second one: "codec" and "bitrate" column hides when the windows is smaller.

If you could fix that up, I'd really appreciate that :)

Hi dramawake,

Very nice skin, my favorite!
One question, can I hide or close te right panel?
I'm not using the features and it would save some space on my screen.

Thank you for your support!
Kind regards, Dennis
this is the best foobar skin i've found! awesome work.

My only issue with it is the new eslyric. It doesn't seem to be very selective when finding lyrics automatically. It will sometimes choose lyrics from a song with the same name from a different band, and sometimes even worse. Is there a way to make the search more selective? I'd rather the panel display no lyrics at all than display incorrect lyrics.
Yes. Sometime like that although I have already set the tolerence to 0 (100% match). You can click "No matched LRC" in context menu of the panel if you don't want the wrong lrc.
Hi dramawake! Could you please tell me how to add a custom "Library" sorting menu entry, with my library's "folder structure" ? Really need this one, since "Directory list" doesn't help me to find the genre organized folder structure I have been working and perfecting on my music library. All the best!
User deined sorting method is %genre%, can you see that? It is not the one you want? Anyway, you can open Panel properties thru menu, and change the value of "Group User-deined" to whatever you want.
Folder Structure I want to know what syntax I have to put into the Panel properties to get the same result as in the image's folder structure generated by the player. I know you did this in a previous vers. of vers. 2.0. All the best!
3.5 version's Artist Name Column is not correct. It seem to Album Artist. Thanks Great Skin!
Will be fixed in 3.6
