    Problems with CF RC2

    IDK if its happening to anyone else but half the time. After shuting down windows or just exiting CF it forgets where I was in the playlist or forgets the playlist all together. Also I enabled single click and didnt like it. I click the down arrow or up arrow and it just keep on going that way like I was holding it down. So I disabled it and for somereason single click stayed on the media player and only removed it self from the library window.

    Really? I thought JIT did that in his Nexus SKIN. I had no idea CF does that by default now. LAME! If I want to add a song to favorites without listinging to it, I have to use the keyboard I use to be able to click it once and then click favorites and it would keep playing the song I was listening to. This makes it very hard to re-build my favorites list after every release :P

    Side note: I tried looking for the favorites.db when upgrading from RC1 to RC2, but I could not find it. What exactly do we backup/restore so we don't lose our favorites playlist every new version?

    I can easily make it part of the singleclick toggle... I changed it to single click always because it was requested...

    What are everyone elses thoughts? Very easy change...

    The file to backup is "main.dat", this is an Access database...

    I too liked being able to highlight a song without having it play automatically.... not a big deal, but I think it was nicer doubleclick, but with most having small touchscreens & no mouse, I guess that's where all the requests for single click comes from...

    Where is main.dat located? I can't find it.

    I really like single-click, but it makes it imposible to do somethings. It would be best if it were single click, but press and hold for 1 second for selection without clicking. That way you have the best of both worlds... single-click makes it easy, but you still have the ability to highlight without clicking. Of course, then your alphabet thing wouldn't work anymore. (honestly I would rather have two buttons to go to next/prev letter rather than the current letter-seek which requires full attention to the LCD until you select by releasing and it is very hard to not be one or two letters off)

    I guess you cannot please everyone... I am hearing valid points from everyone, and personally I still prefer single click over everything else because it requires less attention from myslef. Kinda gets on your nerves when you have to think whether a single click here, or double click there, or click hold for 2 secs, or even 5 secs.... but there are good reasons to have all that.

    I know you feel that way JIT and I tend to agree. That's why I want everything single click, but if CF has the ability to perform an action on a selected item (ie: Marking a song as Favorite) then I still want the ability of highlighting without selecting. That's why I suggested a press-and-hold as a secondary function (highlight instead of select).

    I suppose David could easily make single click just reverse the double/single scripts so that in single-click mode, a double-click would highlight. I would be ok with that, I just think press-and-hold is more intuitive for selecting. A hold then drag could even select multiple just like dragging a selection box around files in windows explorer. (plus I really hate the letter-seek thing )

    Using the double-click to highlight (or hold to highlight) would be purely optional, so it should not interfere with how JIT expects it to work, it just adds the functionality of double-click mode to single-click mode.
