      Poweramp v3 Project Update   04/24/2017

      As you may be aware, the Poweramp developer has been working hard on an updated material design user interface for Poweramp v3 which required a full ground-up rebuild of the code and is taking some time to get to a beta-test stage. See the forum thread for more details and to discuss.

hi. I have selected folders in my music folder to show up. it's there a way to have only the root folder be listed (and not all the folders inside all the music folders)? I don't see see a setting where I can control level of folders that to be displayed (only root folder or root +1 folder level inside root folder, etc.) thanks so much in advance.

You would have to tick the root folder (which also selects all the subfolders) and then drill down and untick the folders that you don't want inside it.

You could try setting the Startup screen mode to Folders. Use Settings > Look and Feel > General > Startup Screen.

If you have just selected the top level in the Music Folders list then yes you'll see all the subfolders. If you don't want some, untick them in the Music Folders drill-down list. You may need to do a Full Rescan, although it should pick up the removals anyway.

I want to show all the folders in music folder by default. the issue I see is that there is no option to show all folders within music by default. if I select all folders, Poweramp shows the music folder. a workaround is to copy  all the folders inside the music folder to the level of the music folder and select only those. if this is the case, please take a ticket to add this functionality. thanks so much.

If you want to see all of the folders within your top-level Music folder at once, within the initial Folders view tap Menu > List Options and choose Hierarchy. Then you will see all your folders (as long as they have contents) in one long list which you don't need to drill down into.

Ah, the opposite of what I suggested then. Tap Menu > List Options and choose List rather than Hierarchy. Then you will see folders in a nested format where you have to drill down level by level from the root level to see the ones underneath.

So having done what I suggested, what do you see that is not what you are asking for? With the two settings I advised you to select, what I see on my phone when starting Poweramp is exactly as per your screenshot (well, apart from being my own folder list not yours! :) )

If you don't use Hierarchy view, you will see all of you top-level folders when you start PA. Remember that you can have multiple folders selected in the Settings > Folders and Library > Music Folders directory list, and each of those ticked folders will be displayed as a 'root item' when you start PA in the mode I suggested. If you only have one folder in use (e.g. /sdcard/Music) then that is what you will see. If you have more than one ticked, you will see all of the ticked folders. So if you want to see more than one folder shown in PA's root-level display, tick them separately rather than just ticking 'Music' only in the list. (i.e. in Settings > Folders and Library > Music Folders, untick /Music in the list and then drill down and tick each of its first-level subfolders instead). The only downside to this is if you later add a new first-level folder inside your /Music folder (genre-named folders in your example above) you would need to manually add it into the Music Folders list.
