How to show long list names?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

how can I show long file names in the list, is there an option?

I tried but all list views, but non show the full long audio names, when it is a long one.

Using latest Poweramp Pro.

Do you mean you want to see filenames instead of using the embedded Title tag? If so, enable Settings > Library> Lists > Filename as Title.

No, I meant the characters are limited and cut off with a [...] at the end when the filename is too long.

It scrolls when in full view, but when I tap on the cover to show all tracks in the playlist, the filename is cut off and not shown completely.

 

See I added a screen shot

Is there any possibility to see the full names? (In this case no meta tags only filename but I want the into shown fully to me in the list)

No, there is no way to do that in the library views (apart from long-pressing on an individual title and selecting Info/Tags). If I just need to see a bit more content, I sometimes just rotate my screen to the wider horizontal view for a moment.

@maxmp obviously soft-scrolling all of the lines in a list by default would look really disconcerting, but perhaps could selected lines which happen to have overflows be soft-scrolled? That way a simple long-press would allow the whole content of a line (or lines) to be seen.

@andrewilley Thanks, that's a good suggestion, to me browsing audios with long filenames like it is now with Poweramp is no fun realy.

I often can't find out what it is from the first few letters only. It makes browsing the library cumbersome.

@amar7 I am. If you have a good idea how to simplify your use case with the long labels browsing that will have high chance of implementing.

Anyway, Poweramp scrolls long labels at the main screen and in lists you can just rotate to landscape to get extra screen width 🙂 In portrait screens are not wide, fonts can’t be too small and there will be always a song with too long label to fit.

Thanks!

How about, once the screen stops scrolling, all the elements currently on the screen will scroll their titles (if necessary) otherwise, while scrolling, they will just show the beginning of their titles?

Unfortunately, such mass text scrolling looks really bad and busy, so that’s why text label scroll stops when we’re in list. Thanks!

There are two ideas that come to mind, the first would be more than one text row, the second and my prefered solution would be a "Scroll by tap" as andrew suggested, one longer tap on a file to get it scrolled, I agree having all files scrolling simultaniously could look confusing.

Yes, I thought that too. But perhaps as a compromise, might it be possible for selected lines (i.e. items that have been long-pressed / selected by the user) to scroll? Then it's up to the user how much they want to see scrolling, and it won't mess up the general display.

I had an idea that came to me, make a small button somewhere on the side, that with a 2-second press, pops up a card with the full file name!
