V17.0.1: Major updates to the Quick Search and Image Viewer popup!

February 14th, 2017

Quick Search: Search-As-You-Type suggestions

Instantly find and select a particular album in your local database:

  • In the Quick Search box, just start typing the first few letters of the artist or title you are looking for.
  • While typing, a drop-down list will appear, showing the first five matching albums.
    (for most albums, it only takes 2 or 3 letters before it shows up.)
  • Once you see the one you were looking for, use the up/down keys to select it, then hit Enter.
  • The album will now be selected in your list, with the details showing in the Details Panel.

Quick Search: Search Field selector

Narrow down your searches to a particular field, e.g. search in Title only, or Notes only:

  • Click the new arrow button to the left of the Quick Search box.
    A list of search fields will appear.
  • Now pick the field you want to search in.
  • Use the Quick Search box as you normally would to search in this field only.

New Multi-Image-Viewer pop-up

Easily browse all images attached to a album:

  • In the album details panel, click an image to open it in the new Multi-Image-Viewer popup.
  • Click the thumbnails on the left (or just use up/down keys) to browse through all images attached to the album:
    front cover, back cover, backdrop and all other image files.
  • No more need to close the popup and click to re-open for the next image.
