Shuffle play selected before choosing song

Unless I am missing something once I select continuous [loop] and/or Shuffle play this state stays in force so when, say, then choosing an album it will start in random. I must then select the individual song currently playing to change both of these parameters (continuous or random). So then must restart the album to begin at the first song.

To my mind, shuffle should be an election at the top menu… choose an album then choose shuffle and not be obligated to revise from an earlier selection.

I agree.

I think it might help if the mode of the queue was displayed by the large “Roon” icon, just like it is when the queue is active. Then users could see what the mode is before initiating play … also these small icons should be clickable to switch of the feature on and off (grey off / blue on).
