Description of Issue

Hi, is it possible to prioritize Qobuz’ high-res version over my local library copy? Years ago, I ripped hundreds of my CDs to MP3. I have more disk space now, but haven’t gone back to re-rip them to FLAC. Is there a way to set Roon to always prioritize playing the highest available resolution version of a track? I can’t seem to find any way to do this other than clicking into the “versions” and manually choosing Qobuz, which is a pain to remember. I also noticed on discography page that I can use the “focus” and choose source or format, but again it’s a manual process I’d rather not have to think about on every album I want to play. Thanks!
