  1. Hey ! Would it be possible to add an option to hide the labels/buttons backgrounds? Even if a select a grey/black background, they're not almost the same color and you can still see them.
  2. Yes, but that's exactly what I DON'T want it to do. My point is exactly that I think it should NOT do that, but it should shuffle only albums and not the songs inside those albums ! That's my whole point: I think that the fact it shuffles categories AND songs no matter what is not coherent. That's why my proposal is to match the behavior of the shuffle button with the viewed category, or at least making the behavior of the shuffle button at the top of lists customizable. Yes, I could do that (and that's what I do), but that's an extra step induced by an arbitrary choice to make the shuffle button always trigger the "shuffle songs and categories" mode. But there are 4 modes, so the user should at least be able to choose what mode the shuffle button should trigger. If supposing Max is planning to add a long-press option for this button (as you said in your first answer), it would solve that issue (maybe then it should save the last selected mode, so we won't need to long-pess each time when we always use the same mode)
  3. Do you have the main background option activated in the main Poweramp settings? If yes then I see your point, but that's not really a bug though, as I understand this option is not intended to stay activated with this theme. But I guess the color of the bottom bar could be handled separately in the now playing screen than when in the library like in other themes, so it would resolve your issue.
  4. No. Forget the repeat option, that's not what we're talking about. My point is that when you press the shuffle button at the top of a list, the activated shuffle mode is ALWAYS "songs and categories" no matter if you're in the albums list, or the artists list, or the all songs list, in the library. But if for example I press the shuffle button at the top of the album list in the library, I find no reason that it shuffles "songs and categories". It would be more coherent that it shuffles categories only.
  5. @Jaded Scorpion If you select "Transparent" in the options for the bottom bar, why do you expect it to not be transparent ? Just select another option.
  6. @maxmp, I just send you logs. It happened just after I launched a manual scan (so @MotleyG, disabling auto scan is unfortunately not a solution 😞 ), not so long after I put a new folder into my SD card. I copied the folder from a local network drive to my SD card so I haven't disconnected my SD card and I was without any issue accessing my SD card through my phone file manager just before that. It stopped what I was listening to. Also, as I have a lot of songs, each time it takes 4-5 minutes for PA to "rebuilt" the library so I have to wait that time before I can listen to anything.
  7. That's very unlikely as I reinstalled another player because of this problem (I use Poweramp for almost as long as it exists, I really don't want to use another player in the long term, but I had to find a temporary solution as especially at work I close/open the player several times a day, so it happens often and is a bit of a hassle), so it happened before that. I have a Samsung Galaxy S9 in Android 10. And my usage is relatively "sober" so it never changes much (no phone updates, no new apps since then), I just keep my apps updated and reboot my phone every now and then. I can't think of any issue that can be caused by other apps as nothing changed between before and after the issues began. That would be an acceptable resolution if it works. I'll try that, thanks. I'll try the option you mentioned. Will definitely send logs the next time ! Thanks. I will try to send logs ! Thanks.
  8. For the record, it happened again today, in worse. After a rescan, everything goes to normal again. Still no issues with other music players.
  9. Issue still present. I was listening to an album, paused and closed the app to do something else and when coming back to resume my playing, the time Poweramp rescanned the library, that album just disappeared from the library. I had to rescan the library once again for it to reappear. Edit: just noticed that after that issue happened, those numbers in the parameters (attached image) are completely false. That not even half of what I have in my SD card (I have at least 20'000 tracks in 2600 folders). The scanner seems to skip entire folders because each time entire folders are concerned. Also, please note that issue is present only in Poweramp. Until this is resolved, I have to use another player (because it happens at least once a day which makes it totally unreliable and a hassle) and it doesn't happend in other players.
  10. Same here ! I understand why it is. But when you're an "album-focused" listener (like I am, and as erikgdd and a bunch of other people seem to be), only having the option to mark tracks as favourites is kind of a nonsense. That's because my music library is composed by albums, and I have favourites albums that I like to listen. In each album, I may (or may not) also have favourite tracks, but these can be favourites within the album. Then would IMO also be nonsense, as my favourite tracks could be just my favourite tracks of that particular album, which would not necessarily be one of my favourite albums at all. Also, a solution consisting of "constructing a favourite album category based on some lower-level infos" seems wonky and unreliable to me (although I think it would work for the "last played album", but because implications are not the same). I think the best thing would be just to think about albums as a full-fledged category and to be able to mark favourite at that level. Then adding a list of favourite albums, what would basically be just a filtered "album" category.
  11. As an "album-centered" listener for as long as I remember, I heavily support this request.
