How Do I Display Track Number?

Recommended Posts

I can't figure out how to display the track numbers within each album. I tried searching the forums, but I can't figure it out. I know I can turn the track counter on in the now playing screen, but I can't get them to display within each album.

Thanks!

You mean in the list view ? Can't be done right now. There have been request for customizable list entries though if I remember correctly.

I seem to recall someone suggesting a field-based system for labelling at each level, which would allow for user choices such as "<%disc%>track% - %title%". (Actually, it might have been me :) 

As with the other recent thread about customisable sorting levels, I would envisage the entire current category/sorting/display system being mimicked in a fully editable system. That way every category and layer would appear exactly as it does at present for first-time users, but power users would be able to go into a new editor screen and tweak and adjust everything to their heart's content. A 'reset to defaults' button would definitely be a good idea though. :)

Yeah, I want the track numbers in the list view when I click an album.

I somewhat surprised that isn't already there by default. I thought it might have been my skin or a setting. That's the third most important piece of information, after album name and track name. I hope this gets fixed soon.

I agree, andrewilley, field-based labeling would be even better.

Thanks!

Really? As long as album's songs are sorted in the correct order, seeing the actual track number itself is completely irrelevant to me. I rarely pick up an album and think "I really want to listen to track 11, that's my favourite..." :)

And in many views (such as Folders) track numbers might be completely irrelevant anyway - in fact, I've got thousands of files in my collection that have no track number tag at all.

So while it would be nice to have the option to see track numbers, it's not exactly critical.

Is this what you are looking for, guys? But I'm the same as Andre. Just tested to see if this is what you wanted... Screenshot_20190205-025027_1.thumb.jpg.ee1ccff7762f5c6e34dff02764f4c465.jpg

That only works if you have track numbers prefixing the front of your filenames though. And generally, for most people's music collections, using Title tags in lists and the player screen is preferable to showing the full filename (filename will always be used as a fallback for untagged items).

Filenames as titles is a workaround, since all of my files are tagged and named properly with track numbers in front; however, they don't allow certain characters (such as colons and slashes). Because of this, many filenames have substitutions for allowable characters. Track name tags don't need these substitutions. I know that's a minor issue.

Track numbers are definitely critical pieces of information. I don't use folder view since all of my files are tagged correctly. I've spent a lot of time properly tagging my music. I've never seen a music player or CD player leave track numbers off. I listen to a lot of concept albums. I like to know where a track is in relation to the rest of the album. When quickly scrolling through an album -- especially one with many tracks -- to play a certain song, it's much easier to look for the track number than the title. This is especially helpful when driving.

Similarly to @Trollburner045's comment I've spent quite some time tagging my music correctly and having the track number shown in the album list is also vital piece of information to me when listening to entire albuns, that's a basic functionality of most music players out there - I second all of Trollburners comments.

Is there a solution to display the track numbers or this is not implemented at all in power amp?

Many thanks

There is no option to do this in any of the category lists at present (you can see track numbers in the metadata line on player screen though).

It would be nice to have a tickbox in List Options to include track numbers (if present) though. I seem to recall Max saying that the code which generates the text in lists is the same as the code for the main player screen though, so if you enabled them in lists then the numbers would appear everywhere else too.

Thanks for the quick reply Andre! It is a shame this isnt present at the moment. I can indeed see the track number in the metadata on player screen such as track 1/13, which is something at least.

This would be indeed so nice to have! It would add to the awesomeness of Power Amp, looking forward to something like this in near future.

Cheers
