  • !Select+

    Hello,

    I'm using the !SELECT+ method to add to my current playlist and be able to continue brownsing for more.

    I'm using the audio browser to reach to the directory I want to add and press the button with !SELECT+. RR instead of adding that directory and subdirs, it adds the whole music folder, ie the music directory declared in rr.ini.

    Am I using the command wrong or it is a bug from the software?

    Thank you in advance!

    Hi Gaslan,

    I think it a user thing ! If you want to add just one song, you need to use the "ADD1" command. If you want to add a selection, you need to be in the level below the selection you want to add, and then use "SELECT+".

    So, assuming you have your music structured like
    Genre
    -Artist
    --Album
    ---Track 1
    ---Track 2
    ---Track 3
    -Album 2
    ---Track 1
    ---Track 2
    ---Track 3

    This threw me for a while until I played with it for a bit, but if you want to add an album, you highlight a track, and use "SELECT+". This will add all the tracks at this level to the playlist.

    Hope this helps.

      This certainly clarifies the things a bit for me! I've done some testing on this...
      Using your example Select, being in the browser and while Album 2 is highlighed (not in the dir), creates a playlist with Album 2 and subdirs.

      On the other hand !Select+ (using "!" because I want it to stay in the browser screen), using the case as above will add Album and Album 2 in the playlist. To get the same effect as SELECT, as you said, one must go into the Album 2 directory and use Select+.

      Is this the way it was intended to work?

        SELECT = add the current selected item: if folder, it loads the folder and adds all items in it, otherwise, just load the contents of current folder.
        SELECT+ = add all items in current folder.
        ADD1 = Add currently selected item only (file or folder).

        They all work in similar manner, the difference is how they handle where you are currently. the ! in front of the select just prevents it from exiting the browser screen.

          That does it, I'll use !Select

          Thanks a million for the clarification Guino!!
