Problem: Raspberry Pi 7" Touchscreen Display -- scrolling
#1
Hi moOde-community,

this is a question to all who are using a Raspberry Pi 7" Touchscreen Display or something similar. I have just bought an external display by request of my wife. I was delighted how easy the installation was.  I am right now using the most current 6.2.1 release. I do have a problem with scrolling though. In the artist view it takes very long to scroll down, which is why I hardly ever listen to Zelenka anymore, but rather stick to Bach and Brahms. I probably just didn't get the knack yet. What makes it harder is the fact, that there are no panel with letters on the right hand side of the artist names anymore, allowing to jump to any letter by clicking on it. Does anyone experience similar problems? Or is there an easy solution I just didn't discover? (My only experiences with a touchscreen are with my smartphone). Any hint is appreciated!

Thanks in advance, David

What is the aspect ratio or alternatively the screen height and width in pixels of your display?

Displays that have aspect ratios that yield a more rectangular than square area often do not have enough height to display the quick jump index, for example the Raspberry Pi Touch which is 16:10 aspect ratio (800 x 480 pixels). iPad and similar 4:3 aspect ration displays are more square and have plenty of height for the index.

I'll have to take a look at the CSS to see if maybe the index could be trimmed to every 4th letter for example A D G J M etc and still fit within the height of the Genre, Artists and Albums columns and be useful.

Hi Tim,

yes, it is a 800x480 Raspberry Pi official display. Every 4th letter would definitely be enough and very useful! Alternatively, a possibility to change the sorting order on the fly might make it easier to access a certain artist.

Thanks a lot for your efforts, I am a big fan of MoOde and love the new version 5!

All the best

David
