RE: queue/insert with play button (party mode), patch 887081

Thanks for the feature. I love it. It's great for adding single tracks but
we do need to be able to add folders with a single key since on-play is
cumbersome when working with one hand free.

Also, when starting with a playlist (from stop), can we just play it,
instead of inserting? We aren't preserving the last dynamic playlist from
stop anyway unless we save it to a permanent file from the "playlist
options" menu, or press "on" to resume the current (last) playlist, which we
can add to all we want while playing.

If it's too hard to have the buttons act differently for different file
types, it's nod big deal.

Thanks again,

I'd like that too, and might make another setting for that, but the
ON+PLAY way to do it is not so cumbersome...

It has annoyed me too for quite some time.

Or, you can map the "Queue next and Play" option to either PLAY or RIGHT
to do it for you. In patch 935682, that is.

Fresh ucl and ajz files with patch 935682 applied can be found under
