This was a known issue before the release of 1.6, but everything else was ready before a fix was finished. I understand a fix is in the works and should be in one of the bugfix releases following on 1.6.
I have the option enabled to show more covers that results in 3 rows (3 x 7) of albums in album view. When using the inspector to focus on something specific the view changes to 2 rows (2 x 4). This was not the case before the UI change.
It has to make room for the tags list and how it does it probably varies screen by screen. In my tablet the albums reduce in size a bit so they can still all be squeezed in. Perhaps with the new footer there just isn’t the space for you any more?
I have noticed the same. Yes with focus it goes to two rows. However the cover art is bigger and the number of Albums is less than before. If I go to settings and turn off allow for more covers then I get 2 by 5. More and not less!
Seems like there is a bug here. This is on an iPad remote. I have not checked this on my Windows pc yet which is why I had not reported this earlier. I will check later when I am back at the pc.
