already present if jtfe is present on the send-to menu via the 'move after current playlist item' option.

there is merit to having it on the combined play/enqueue button and /or also in the right-click menu (though only concern is over cluttering the menus) and was one of the things which the work done for the combined play / enqueue button was intended to allow for at some point (whether native or via a plug-in).

not sure how this one would work tbh.

with further clarification this has now been implemented as per attached screenshot. also i've made changes so changing things between the skin and the prefs page will remain in sync (not something that has previously been done so that adds a bit more polish to the handling ).

as we've found during chatting, this is already something that is working as long as the artwork is in the correct format i.e. png.

as we found from a bit of digging, changing / embedding the image via Winamp led to everything being converted to a jpeg version instead of maintaining the original format (which has now been fixed internally) and also that pasting was defaulting to jpeg - now changed to png to ensure we keep transparency.

so support already works, it's how Winamp does embedding / associating of artwork which is at fault in defaulting to a format which doesn't do transparency (with changes now made, but more work is required to ensure we're all correct).

hiding the time is simple but i'm really really not sure that's a good thing to remove.

auto-hiding the scrollbar is an interesting suggestion but is a bit skin specific to get it working ok as it'd possibly break classic skins. will keep it in mind but unlikely to happen for the time being.

it can be done, just requires some minor tweaks to the playlist drawing code to be able to use it. plus it does make sense for the main playlist editor to follow the style as well. so is more likely to happen (and is pretty simple to do).

as we've discussed off forum, it can be done but it involves a fair bit of work to just get something working in a library playlist view (effectively adding the means for a playlist view to be a limited library view). and getting something decent in the library could help to refine things before considering to do something like it in the main playlist. so am not committing to doing it but it's something that definitely has merit.
