Where is playlist search in version 4?

Added by Dimo K 3 months ago

I have just upgraded to version 4.0.1 from 3 something and I must say I am a bit confused because of the changed UI. What bothers me most is that I can't find a way to search for a track in the playlist. In version 3 a search dialog appeared upon pressing "J" key, but now I can't open it, nor can I find it anywhere in the menus.

So how do I search? I have thousands of tracks and without being able to find the one I want, Audacious becomes completely useless to me.

Thanks in advance!

Playlist -> Find, or Control+F

Ok, so the keyboard shortcut is different. As I understand, it is not possible to customize it, right? So, where can I see the possible shortcuts? Is there a readme file or a documentation somewhere?

And the reason I did not see it was because it is missing from the Winamp interface that I usually use. Or is it somewhere else? If not, shall I open a feature request? I need it a lot.

You can open a feature request if you like, but I don't know of any core developers who have shown interest in working on the Winamp Classic interface in the past few years.

You can continue using an --enable-gtk build for now, as suggested in the release notes, or try to find a developer with interest and time to work on the Qt port of the Winamp Classic interface. Or you could try getting used to the primary Qt interface instead.

Keyboard shortcuts are currently not configurable. You can see pretty much all of them by flipping through the menus.

Alright, thanks for clarifying all!
