SmartPlaylist 7.3

Additional features in "Search" (quick search):
  • "❲Filter❳": Apply the quick search to the current list. Only the matching titles remain in the list. The results are loaded into the playback queue of the Music player (playback is very briefly interrupted).
  • "Mark": The matching titles are marked in yellow. The list and the playback queue remain the same, the playback is not interrupted.
  • "Search next ⇣": Scrolls to the next matching title. Back in the list you can jump to the next directly using "Next".
  • "Reset": Back to the original, unfiltered list (also removes highlights)
(Here shown without the keyboard, which usually is always displayed)

Additional quick search criteria:
  • Quick search by play count: Add for example „>10x“ (= played more than 10 times).
  • Quick search by last played: Use for example „<10d“ (= played less than 10 days ago). „d“ = days, „w“ = weeks, „m“ = months, „y“ = years. [1]
  • Quick search by rating: Instead of minimum number of *, use for example „=4*“ („***“ is the same as „>2*“).

  1. Load list "A" without any search rules. Now you have all titles in the list.
  2. Filter "A" with quick search "class". Now you only see your Classical titles (depends on your titles, of course)
  3. Filter "❲A❳" with "bach". Now you only have Classical titles by Bach. You could use "C:bach" to only search by Composer, instead of searching all tags (artist, title, etc.)
  4. Enter quick search "****" and tap "Mark". Now all Classical titles by Bach with 4 stars or more are marked in yellow.
  5. "Search next ⇣  for "sarab" will scroll to the next "Sarabande" in your list (highlighted in orange). Titles with 4 or 5 stars are still marked in yellow. Now you can use "Next" to jump to the next and so on.

[1] Auf Deutsch: „T“ = Tage, „W“ = Wochen, „M“ = Monaten, „J“ = Jahre.
      En fran├žais: „j“ = jours, „s“ = semaines, „m“ = mois, „a“ = ans.
