Description

I find the results in the Search Tool very hard to read (see screenshot).

Perhaps this could be improved by some appropriate formatting, say bold for album names. Or maybe even a different color, suitably chosen. Alternatively you could include a small icon indicating album right next to an album, and another indicating artist next to artist, etc.

Bottom line is that I like Audacious but have a hard time with the Search Tool which I use extensively.

Looks great, thanks!

Do you think it would be difficult to add horizontal separators (i.e. lines) between "categories". For instance, a horizontal line after 'MUSICAL', another after 'Mumford & Sons', another after '5 songs by Handel, George'. In short, some sort of logical separation between the categories...

Separators would also be nice, but a little harder to implement.

Should I open a new report for this?

#8 Updated by John Lindgren 2 months ago

If you like, but I don't think it will get implemented any time soon.
