I’ve read and followed this thread, which may be too old to help.
But I can’t see how to use Bookmarks in Roon the way I want.
For instance, I am listening to Simon Preston’s excellent survey of Bach’s organ music. It was issued on 14 CDs, each with a dozen or two (or so) tracks.
Roon has - of course - ordered these as it should:
1 - 1, 1 - 2, 1 - 3, 1 - 4… etc all the way to …14 - 9.
At each session’s listening I want to be able to pick up at the track where I left off the session before.
The only way I have found of doing this is by scrolling down until I come to a lower number (0 during the first cycle’s listening) of ‘Plays’ than those above.
I see how to create a bookmark.
But nothing happens when I (single-)click on the Bookmark in question at the start of the next session.
Although such a Bookmark serves as a useful text note of where I am up to - because I name the Bookmark accordingly (e.g. Up to 10 - 6), I would like to be taken to the view I had when I last stopped, scrolled down to the track I paused at and be able to resume listening.
Should I perhaps be creating a Focus to do this?
Any help and directions as to how to do what I want gratefully received.
Bookmarks are to provide shortcuts to views. You can read about them here:
So they’re not the tool for your task. Presumably you’re playing other things on the endpoint in between the Bach sessions? If not just hit stop and play when you return?
If you are, then what you want is a “saved play state” queue. I don’t think that’s a Roon feature. There is a hacky fix I can think of where you could transfer the queue to an unused endpoint like your phone. You could then transfer it back when you wanted to resume.
I’m just another user BTW, support may have better suggestions when they reply.
That will open up the Queue screen for the current Zone that you are playing to. It will open with what appears to be a blank screen with the currently playing track at the top, but the screen is scrollable, and you can scroll backwards and forwards to any point in the queue.
There’s a Help article on using the Queue here, but this was made for version 1.7 of Roon. There are some changes with 1.8, but the principles remain the same.
