Remove/hide the Delete button

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'd like to request the (optional, user-selectable) ability to remove or hide the Delete button from the Poweramp menu, as I don't want any risk of accidentally deleting a file (or removing a track from my playlist) by clicking that button by mistake. I never, ever delete files or tracks via Poweramp, so I have no need for that button to be there at all, and there's always the risk that I'll tap it accidentally. :)

Thanks Andre. But I'm already aware of that setting, and I already have it unticked. That doesn't remove the Delete button from the menu however.

 

Furthermore, although unticking that setting prevents Poweramp from deleting the actual song file, it doesn't prevent Poweramp from deleting the song from the current playlist. So if I tap "Delete", the song still gets removed from my playlist, which I definitely don't want to happen!

 

So my original feature request still stands: I'd really love the ability to remove that button altogether so there's no chance of anything being deleted from anywhere. :)

I have the Samsung Note Edge and this button is so much worse as it's on the rounded edge and it is very easy to accidentally touch it, any chance for an options to remove it?

You could try using the non expanded menu style (via Settings > Look and Feel > Menus, so you only see the first five options at the first press of the menu button, with the remaining options hidden behind a 'More' button. Maybe not ideal, but it would stop you catching Delete accidentally so easily.

I really don't fancy the Edge phones for exactly that reason - I seem to manage to select stuff by accident at the side of my normal screen anyway, so the Edge function would make that possibility ten times worse for me.

Thanks for the help, I had tried all the menu options and just to make sure I tried what you said and it is always there, those options you suggested are for only when you press the three dot menu and what pops up unfortunately.

Where else do you see the Delete button apart from when you select the menu, or very specific tasks such as long-pressing on a song title in the Library?

When playing a song, so click on a playlist then onto a song and it shows the single song and it's on the right side edge of the phone, I have screenshots but not sure if I can put them here.

Ah, so the Edge phones put the menu options permanently down the edge of the phone I assume? Messy! You could try going into Poweramp Settings > Look and Feel > Menus and turn the Android Action Bar mode off and use the regular or Poweramp skinned menu instead? Not sure though, as I don't have an Edge phone.

Yes it's always there, I have tried all menu options and nothing changes that menu, maybe it has more to do with the phone than Poweramp, I'll dig a bit more into the phone and see if that helps.

Poweramp is certainly not doing it deliberately, sounds like the Edge is forcing whatever Action Bar menu that an app offers to be down the side of the phone rather than the top where the app expects it to be. As that's such an obscure behaviour (I'd be forever catching buttons with the side of my hand!) I would hope they offer an option to turn that 'feature' off.

Is it worth trying a different Poweramp skin to see if that affects it?

Yes very annoying, I have deleted a few songs from my playlist, changing skins just changes the look of the icons, they are still the same ones unfortunately. Unable to find anything in the phones settings to change or remove it.
