Auto Play & Delete

Post by janzaka » Sat Nov 19, 2011 7:34 pm

I am using MM4.
1. Remove button is missing on Edit Menue & Toolbar menue in MM4. (I have to left click the song to see a Remove button. In MM3 Remove button was present in Toolbars)
2. After I delete a song the next file does not start automatically. (In MM3 after I deleted a song the next song would start automatically.)

1. You can customize the toolbar. Right click > Configure

2. This was already discussed at length during beta testing. It's the intended behavior in version 4.0 because having it the other way also causes problems. See:

Re: automatically playing the next song after delet:
I think this is problomatic for most users. Next song should start automatically.

That is how it worked in v3. But that caused the issue: "Deleting multiple tracks from now playing triggers endless warnings".

I think that this issue should be reopened. Being able to delete the currently playing file is one of my most favorite features of MM and I don't like the new behavior. The playlist should continue playing the next track after deleting selected. Otherwise, it's a pain to have to restart manually. If this is not fixed I will have to go back to v3.

Can you pls advise if you're considering to change this behavior?

The issue is open for review by the developers now, but they have not decided yet.

Really missing this feature in MM4, it's a pain to have to re click play every time after deleting a song.

This feature being removed from MM4 is the worst upgrade decision EVER! I swear by this program. If I could marry a program, this would be the one. My soul mate... But without the feature to automatically play the next track MM4 is useless. I'm ashamed I've recommended this program to so many people now. I'll be downgrading after posting this. I will NEVER upgrade unless this feature is included. I am incredibly disappointed to say the least. Whomever suggested this new behavior in MM4 needs to have their job reevaluated.

No one suggested it. It was causing a bug in MM3, where if you deleted consecutively playing tracks you had to hit OK for each subsequently deleted track.

After installing MM4, I was surprised to discover that play stopped after delete and I spent a LOT of time trying to find how to re-enable this; And now I see it was totally removed!!!
I totally agree with janzaka and ausher8 - This functionality was very useful and I loved it. I remember that actually I discovered and and started to use MediaMonkey only because it had this feature and after I was frustrated from Winamp not being able to quickly delete from the disk a song I didn't like.

MediaMonkey developers, why not adopt the simple Windows Explorer behavior for deleting multiple files: popup a SINGLE message box telling something like "Are you sure you want to delete these 1234 files?"

I was happy to pay for a lifetime gold license and I relay enjoyed MM for a very long time - Please bring this feature back and keep us all happy!

Thanks

I'd like this back please too.

Within minutes of downloading 4 I used PayPal to upgrade to Gold. I never thought one of the features I loved in 3 would be permanently disabled. Disable it by default if it causes problems but please let people who want to use it turn it back on

I want this "auto play next file after deleting a file" back.

If not sadly..I would have to go back to winamp.

Please bring this feature back, it should be included. It's enough of an annoyance I've started looking at other products.

Thanks for an otherwise great app.

Lots of thanks to MM R&D and to all those who complained and made it happen :-)
