Completely agree with this frustration - please, please can we at least have the “Allow for more covers and photos” option back? Doesn’t seem like a big ask to restore something that many of us found helpful in 1.7.
I design websites for a living and with that, have training in UI and UX. Based on the world I come from, the designers of 1.8 have done a beautiful job.
I guess one man’s wasted space is another’s sanctuary - space to allow a busy mind to think clearly, relax and enjoy the music.
I agree with your sentiment, and it’s one that works for some of the pages in Roon, but not all of them. For example, while I’m listening to a particular album - and enjoying the music - then it’s a definite bonus. But when I’m looking for a specific album on the albums page, or in a discography, having to scroll more often is just annoying. My ‘busy mind’ would be better soothed if I could scan a screen with more albums rather than less.
So I guess we are requesting our problem with the wrong terminology? we need a business GUI.
It actually makes sense, we need a GUI that gets right down to business.
Get a infinite scroll mouse spin then click to stop.
I’ don’t understand people that think their phone is the only way to control EVERYTHING! It’s a phone people…ya know meant for PHONE CALLS…to badger Roon to make allowances for controlling Roon is ridiculous! Buy a cheap tablet and use that for cryin out loud! STOP YOUR WHINING!!!
We’re in 2021.
Your Point??? Yep it’s 2021…figure out a better way…cause it surely is available!
I’ve already made it.
Perhaps you misunderstood what I said, and I wasn’t whining. Agreed phones are phones mainly, and the only time I would use it to control Roon is if my other devices are not near.
no idea why my post was moved here (and, btw, before many older ones re “show more albums” now available in v778)
my “feature request” was for a re-thinking of 1.8 UI, clearly designed with just phones and smaller control devices in mind
… not even having a clue about what “responsive” is/how to properly do it?
oh, please: most of 1.8’s space waisting is because of elements placed with just a phone, and portrait mode, in mind!
oh and… a mix of HUGE and tiiiiiiny fonts probably inspired by some “creative” graphic design dating back in the '60s. sometimes they come back
