This issue is OS related from Google and their legal battle with Sonos over how they managed the volume control to connected devices. It will probably require an OS update on your device before it can be enabled to work like it did before A12. I think some Pixel phones started to get updates a couple of months ago, not sure how long other manufacturers will take to do their updates.

[Abusive comment removed --- Admin] He disabled the volume level setting due to absence of cast volume control in Android 12. Ofc pixel phones got cast control few months ago, now it's totally included in Android 12.1. u c wot I'm talkin about?

At the moment, PA's volume step adjustment control is automatically disabled when any Android 12+ ROM is detected. So even if Google restored the old functionality tomorrow, it still would not be able to be used in PA. Once Max has new ROMs to test with, he'll be able to establish whether the previous code will still function with the modified Android release, and/or write new code for the new ROMs.

That's why I'm requesting him to look into it!

See my previous reply: "Once Max has new ROMs to test with, he'll be able to establish whether the previous code will still function with the modified Android release, and/or write new code for the new ROMs."

Wow, great contributor to the community. Every post is a negative about something you want.

My point still stands, that even IF Max were to update the code to allow for the extra steps again, you will still need an update for your OS to enable it. Why would he rush to add a new fix for this when there has been little to no support directly from Google over this since last fall?

@Bargunan unfortunately custom volume levels are not yet supported by any Android 12+ release or 13 betas. Cast volume is supported, but this functionality works with the remote streams only (such as Chromecast). Btw Google constantly removes features from Android, so this feature may be never available. You still can adjust volume with better accuracy via:
- Poweramp preamp
- Samsung + Sound Assistant (Poweramp supports increased volume levels for Sound Assistant up to 150 levels)

The tracking bug issue is here: https://issuetracker.google.com/issues/201546605

Thanks!

Bottom buttons optionGood one Max, I said something about this, I used Samsung one UI, as an example, where in a page, options can be dragged down almost to the middle of the screen, but @andrewilleysaid what's the point? Some time reaching the top of the screen is stressful, especially using one hand.

I wish this could be applied to the settings page too.

This is definitely an improvement over having to scroll all the way back up to the top of a very long list just to get at the three-dots menu icon.

However it does also mean you can no longer see a clean unobstructed view of the list as you scroll down, which was rather nice. Could I suggest a third option for the 'Header Buttons' line in which the top buttons row (but not the rest of the header picture area) slides back into view whenever you nudge back up a little - just like the miniplayer and menu bar unhide themselves at the bottom at present. Thus when scrolling downwards you'd see the full unobstructed list with no buttons top or bottom, but when scrolling back upwards again and you'd see the top row of buttons and also the bottom miniplayer / menu.

Trying to style the new menu buttons in Library Views

build.gradle:

    aaptOptions {
        def localProps = new Properties()
        localProps.load(rootProject.file("local.properties").newDataInputStream())
        def paResources = localProps['Poweramp-build-935-uni.apk'] ?: "Poweramp-build-918-resources.zip"

        additionalParameters "--emit-ids", "stable-ids.txt",
                "--package-id", "0x80",
                "-I", "${projectDir}/../${paResources}"
        if(rootProject.file("stable-ids.txt").exists()) {
            additionalParameters "--stable-ids", "stable-ids.txt"
        }
    }

Poweramp-build-935-uni.apk exists in the appropriate folder

        <item name="com.maxmpz.audioplayer:ItemTextHeaderSearchButton_scene_bottom_toolbar">
            @style/ItemHeaderSearchButton_scene_bottom_toolbar
        </item>
    <style name="ItemHeaderSearchButton_scene_bottom_toolbar" parent="com.maxmpz.audioplayer:ItemTextHeaderSearchButton_scene_bottom_toolbar">
        <item name="com.maxmpz.audioplayer:drawableTint">?com.maxmpz.audioplayer:colorIconPrimary
        </item>
        <item name="android:background">@drawable/library_stroke_corners_large_bg</item>
    </style>

AAPT: error: style attribute 'com.maxmpz.audioplayer:attr/ItemTextHeaderSearchButton_scene_bottom_toolbar' not found.

Is there another resources .zip to be released, am I missing something or do you have to expose the new artifacts
