Load cover art opens album folder

Post by blabibo » Thu Mar 26, 2020 6:40 pm

I have currently more than 10K (10.434 to be precise) album folders on my HDD. Scrolling to find the album folder in which the cover art is stored is a major pain in the neck. I think that when we click on "Load", explorer should open the album folder that is currently selected in the main window, it makes more sense to me. Opening the last opened folder isn't helpful at all, once I've added the cover I'm simply not going back to that folder. In the general settings we should be able to choose what we want: "Open current album folder" or "Open last opened folder".

Thank you for your suggestion.

This has been discussed before and the solution would to have two load buttons; normal "Load" (last used folder) and "Load from Source Folder" (load from the folder where the audio files are).

I look forward to do this.

Cool, glad you're working on this :) This is a feature that I'll be using immediately, no more scrolling endlessly through thousands of folders!
