Metadata "Comment" column width and "Size Column to fit"

Post by aacton » Mon Apr 15, 2024 3:26 pm

I have noted 2 possible problems:

1) "Size Column to Fit" does nothing?

2) "Size All Columns to Fit" works for all columns, however if you are using the column called "Comment" the data displayed is truncated to about 18 characters?

Screen shot attached...

Comment column is intentionally truncated in 'Size Column To Fit' because it can be very long

Re: "Comment" column - that makes sense, thanks for the clarification.
Re: "Size Column to fit" - Further checking here... it *IS* working. One must RMB (Right Mouse Button) on the heading line in the blank area (where there is no existing coumn heading).

So I guess everything is 'working as designed' :)

Just tested it.

:shock:

"Size Column To Fit" is broken if the order of the columns has been changed. I will fix it.

Now fixed (for the next update)
Bugfix: 'Size Column To Fit' did not apply to the correct column if the default column order had been changed

Great, that would explain the odd behavior here (I was re-ordering the columns)... in anticipation of 'Automatic Re-size All Columns To Fit" option 8)

This will work for auto-fit ?
It will be applied when
Audio CD Ripper
1) CD-text read
2) Local DB cache read
3) Internet metadata applied

EZ CD Audio Converter 11.5.3 has option for Automatic Size All Coluns to Fit here:

Works perfectly! I highly encourage EZ CD users to enable this feature.

In my case I place all 'FIXED' length metadata (green box) to the left and 'VARIABLE' (red box) length metadata to the right. Thus, the green box remains fixed as the metadata source is changed.

A great improvement. Refer to the following screen capture:

When I click in the blank area, where there is no existing column heading and use "Size current Column to fit", I get this error message in the 11.5.3. Version:

I don't have that option in the German 11.5.3 Version. There is only one option.

I changed the option location before releasing the update, it's here: (Only in Audio CD Ripper currently) (I am investigating whether it is feasible to add to the Audio Converter also)
