Volumio3 Experimental UI Feedback Thread

thanks for the update and the volumio 3 experimental UI
I have a problem with the new volumio3 UI and that the corners are not rounded up properly (the official volumio android app) the same applies to my official 7 inch touchscreen.
everything is ok on my mac on safari.

for the rest it all looks very nice and for now it all works great :)

Horizontal scrollbar appears at bottom of the lists (seems to be all list views). Has no function.
When there is a long list, the side slider in the scrollbar is hidden under the top bar, only appears after rolling the mouse scrollwheel down.

When clicking on an item in a list (e.g. artist name in 'Artists') the following screen opens with the vertical scrollbar in the same position (e.g. open an artist at the top of the list, the artist page opens showing the 'play button and the albums. open an artist lower in the list, the artist page opens halfway down in the tracks listing so you must scroll up to see the play button and the albums)
However, hitting the back arrow from an artist page brings you back to the top of the artists list rather than back to the selected artist. In this case it would be better to keep the previous scroll position.

Personal view: I find the bottom control bar ugly. For radios it is ok.

but for library tracks I find the mismatch between the progress bar and volume bar to be jarring

I really like the classic Volumio player with the two circular controls. Good UI design in that the main screen area is used for the primary purpose of controlling the player. This tiny bar at the bottom wastes 90% of screen.

I like where Volumio is heading!

One bug in the last version: restart does not work and I need to unplug. At least one of the times it never came back and I was forced do flash the card again.

I hear the startup sound but can never conect, neither on the PC browser or the iPhone app.

EDIT: after disconecting an external card reader where I store some local music files it restarted normaly.

Volumio3 Experimental UI Feedback Thread

I'm using Windows 10.0.18362 and Firefox 68.0.1 and a Pi3 with Allo Boss.

I also couldn't find the settings link or access a scroll bar for the new left menu. I did find if I reduced my screen to 80% zoom, I had access to the full menu and could then do a proper shutdown as long as my browser window was at full size. Suggestion: How about a shutdown icon on the main screen so we don't need to dig through the menu? Maybe we could click on the Volumio logo in the upper left corner and get shutdown/restart options to avoid using extra screen space?

I notice that pop up boxes at the top of the screen immediately under the green divider line hide behind the top menu bar. For Instance, when I click on Music Library - the pop up box for the first storage option is mostly hidden. The 3 dots icon pops a box open above my line position - but being the top line it hides

Other requests:
*Could we have check boxes to delete multiple items from the queue at one time?
*I have defined the directory path for my one and only NAS drive, but for some reason I need to drill down from NAS to NAS Music to the directories below that every time I choose Music Library. It would be great if it would open the NAS Music directory for me if I don't have multiple sources defined.

Thanks for a great product.

The mismatch is hurting eyes, some suggestions for that:

How about adding a button which minimizes the bottom bar when one likes that?

In new 3.0 GUI, Left hand pane for music sources does not have the vertical scrollbar. Due to this "Settings", "plugins" cannot be see and reached.
i could see those link after reducing the zoom ( chrome browser)

WOW !
I really like a clean Italian minimalist design and basically it's really good. I have only a couple of doubts.

- Full size player:
Left hand menu is good but make it scrollable and add "Queue" and "Outputs", maybe also add "Shutdown", all for easy access.
Make the My Volumio icon more visible ( = MyVolumio)

Main window/ Bottom player (Very much Spotify look a like ;) )
A bit like "butter on butter" , messy, dubble info /controls
( IMO the "Circular controls" can go , like a main window more like the Tablet size player)

- Tablet/Mobile size player
:D Totaly blinded by a clean and nice layout, works and looks really nice.
The layout is so clean that I think that we can afford a Volumio loggo somewhere :)
The only thing is that I sometimes missing is a Queue botton in the Browse menus (instead of a Browse botton)
