    Browse by A, B, C, ..., Z

    I copied my music from my mac's itunes library so I have 780 folders of mp3s, one for each artist. It is difficult to scroll that many so I was going to create 26 folders, A, B, C, ..., Z and put shortcuts to every artist folder that starts with letter 'A' into the 'A' folder etc. That way I could very quickly get to ..zz top or whatever I could also keep the original directory structure so I can sync with my home computer.

    Well I could not see the shortcuts in RR. Can I fix that somehow? Also, does anyone have a script that could automate this process of creating the folders A - Z? If not, what program/language can you recomend to create something to automate this. I can program but dont know windows very well.

    Have a look a the xeon preview.. its got a scroll bar on the audio_browser and also if you click on the windows icon on the side, you can the choose from A - Z. You can also change the colour to match your dash as well if you wish. I have started on another skin, but this is unnamed at the mo.. pic's are at the end of the xeon thread

    click the xeon link in my signature to have a look

    thanks for the skin links. I would rather not change my skin though since ive started to customize it. would it be easy/possible to put your feature into another skin CdRsKuLL? If so then I will give that a shot.

    maybe CDR can make a small sidebar flash plugin that you could load on any skin. just like a little button on the left side that when pressed pulls out the flash keypad and slides off.. I would probably have to be vertical though, cause it won't go over the list itself -- already sounds like a lot of work if you ask me.

    sounds like the skin isnt going to work out.

    so, is there any way I can make shortcuts showup when browsing songs in RR?
