Thanks in advance for any input. I love most of Poweramp and have read through all the info on shuffle but cannot find the answer to this: I like to play my entire library on shuffle. Sometimes, though, I want to start over with a new shuffle before the entire library has played through. But the list always starts with the same songs and repeats in the order originally set. This happens when I do Library - All Songs- Shuffle All Songs or even in a single artist when I do Artist - All Artist Songs - Shuffle ( If I am just shuffling one artist ). Turning shuffle off and on, or switching between settings does not alter it. Do I really have to let the original shuffle order play out before it will shuffle them again? What am I doing wrong?
Now that we can shuffle an artist's albums I did that on several occasions. Good thing : it generally works. Bad thing : due to negligence and/or stupidity I always succeeded in breaking my shuffling run after the nth album just by playing another song out of order. Request : a question to the user before this really takes place might be helpful : "Hey, stupid, you really wanna play that song and wreck your artist-album-shuffle ?" Or words to that effect.
Prior to updating to the new UI, I use to be able to shuffle all songs contained within a certain folder (even if that one folder contained even more folders) by long pressing that folder and pressing the shuffle button. It worked like a drill-down shuffle and would shuffle anything within any of those folders so long as it was originally housed within the main folder I long pressed on. (Hope I'm explaining myself ok) This was great for me because I would create many folders within folders allowing me to set each folder as a different genre or mood to play. This no longer seems to work. Instead now when I long press a folder there are different options off the pop-up menu however shuffle is not one of them. Does anyone on here know if I'm just missing something? Maybe Andre? Thanks, Mike
