Media Library Album Art view and arrow keys

Is there a specific reason that, while browsing album art, only the up/down arrow keys work? As in, I can only scroll up and down a column of albums, with said keys, not move to a different row with the left/right arrow keys. Bug/feature? Oversight? Some option I've yet to notice?

That's... that's amazing. You linked me to a newer post that asks the exact same question, less elegantly, and still doesn't give any useful information outside of the fact that I'm not alone in finding this to be either a bug or an annoying "feature". Good job.

You're either amazingly obtuse, immune to sarcasm, or a dick. I vote the last.

LOL; this still hasn't been fixed!!!

I'm guessing that since the Album Art Pane displays in details view by default, some developer only wrote code for up/down keyboard navigation. Wake up call to the Winamp dev team, the ML icon-only album art view needs to have left/right arrow key navigation.

seems to work ok for me though i'm using the internal build - and it wouldn't have worked before since the album art view is a customised listview implementation and i guess full keyboard handling for that wasn't done from the start or just people don't use the keyboard enough nowadays, heh.

up/down does work for me, but L/R does not. nice to hear its working in an internal build, lets hope it makes it to the final build.

the ML has gotten better in recent releases, hover scrolling, proper refreshing when rating, etc... it needs some things but i do notice the improvements.

Thanks for the info DrO.

Ditto on MrSinatra's last post, direct scrolling in the ML is much appreciated as well as finally saying goodbye to the 'blank ML on launch' bug.
