Two requested features... (Fulfilled)

I have two requested Play features:
1. Drag and drop files/folder directly to the Play Queue from Finder.
2. Keep Play Queue entries through sessions.

#1 is partly working today. Meaning I can drag and drop files to the Play Queue window (the green (+) icon show up), but the tracks will only be added to the Library.

Thanks! :)

Huh?

If memory serves, both of these features are in r653, no??

They are not in the Revision 653 build I downloaded from here: http://sbooth.org/files/Play-r653.tar.bz2

Edit: Remain, are you certain you know the difference between the Play Queue and the Library? I did not know until last week.. ;)
As of now the files have to be added to the Library first, then later added to the Play Queue. Two steps before you can even play a track.

(Notice how the file was also added to the Library at the bottom.)



You're right, I must've totally been imagining things. XD

You can keep play queue entries between sessions by turning on the 'Save on exit' option in the General prefs.

It seems that dropping files on the Play Queue table works as expected (as illustrated by remain), while dropping of folders doesn't work the same way. I will figure out why!

I've just checked in changes that allow folder dragging to the Play Queue table.

Ah yes, I forgot I had checked "Save on exit" in Prefs.

Suggestion: Turn this ON by default.
I think most people would want things to "be the way they left it last time."
(since it's the way things behave in the real world;
I sure hope that if I leave a CD in my car's radio, it'll still be there the next time I get in my car =P )

Ticking 'Save on exit' took care of this task. Sorry, I totally missed that preference...

Actually I only tried with a folder, as thats what I usually add.
Using revision 665 I am now able to drop folders directly into the Play Queue.

So now I am able to use Play again... Thanks a lot! :D
