Just upgraded to 3.5.9 from 3.2.x…
Sorry to say, but this new layout might be a deal breaker for me. Such a waste of space, very inefficient design.
I often browse by genre, e.g. jazz, and scroll through the playlist in track view. Now I see just 14 tracks at once! I hope we will be able to make the view MUCH more compact in an upcoming version.
Why are we forced to have a big empty column on the left of the track view?
Search results are even worse. For example, I have 21 Brubeck albums, but only 3 are listed in the standard search view. Yes, I can click on ‘see all’ to see all the album covers but it’s an unnecessary step to take every time. Seeing just 3 results for each attribute type is basically useless (except perhaps for the artist column). Why isn’t there a list view option?
The settings view is so big and clunky - it reminds me of the Skype disaster, as someone already pointed out. Now the settings are spread over 6 screen heights, whereas 1-2 would be possible and much more convenient. Why make us scroll so much to get to what we need?
Some column headers are completely out of line with the rest of the column. See the Track# and Disc# columns. What a mess!
The info window is way to big and clunky, much like the settings view.
And slightly off topic, but it appears there is still no support for the volume control on Macs with Touch Bars
However, I did find one positive thing: I do like the overall color and look of the dark mode.
