Hi, first of all thanks to your effort to develop this multimedia player (I enjoy it since 3.1 times)

then I have two litte question / feature request regarding QT interface and songs list in playlists or Library :

Could you consider increasing the height of rows or add a little bit of padding between rows?
Could the current playing song using the bold font style?

first request could be an option in the APPEARANCE setting : maybe something like compact /normal / large playlist song view

The row height and padding is set by your Qt style/theme, for what it's worth.

"Could the current playing song using the bold font style?"

I would love to see the return of this feature! When I pointed out it was missing they said they wouldn't bring it back as there is a Currently Playing icon you can add :(

The attached patch restores the bold font style for the playing song.

@John: Do you think we can merge it as is? Or should we make this dependent on whether the playing column is hidden?

Either way is fine with me.

#5 Updated by Thomas Lange almost 4 years ago

Ok, I would then use the bold font for both cases.
Attached is another optimized patch which caches the font, similar to the approach in the playlist manager plugin.

Looks good to me.

  • Status changed from New to Closed

The remaining feature request (increase height/padding between rows) is a QStyle setting and can be changed by switching to a different theme, I believe. So I'll go ahead and close this.
