This tutorial shows the means of album and track selection.



Double click Library Item

Select the Library Area by means of the [ L ] button in the top.
Double Click on an Item in the Library Area :


The Playlist area will be cleared and the item (an album in ths case) will be loaded in the Playlist Area :






Select Library Item(s) and click Load


Two Items/albums were selected here and when the Load button is used, both albums will load in the Playlist Area.
The Playlist Area will not be cleared first. So you can keep on selecting and click load again. What has been loaded will be removed from the selection.
Click empty space to remove all the selections :


or click a selected Item to unselect it.

Watch out : In Settings (under the [ S ] button in the top) there's this setting :


(see at the mouse pointer)
When this is made active (red) all clicks automatically add to selections. This is meant for remotes (like tablet) where ctrl-click to add to a selection is a less convenient matter. The unselect works also different in this case; while you normally can click any Item to unselect the others, this now does not happen and each individual item must be clicked again to unselect it. However, click in the empty area (see tw pictures back) and all is unselected at once.
When the Touch Facilities setting is active, you can also select more Items and double click a last one (see previous topic) which first clears the Playlist Area and next loads all the selected Items.




Use the Explore button










Drag from Explorer

This can *not* be done when Explorer is engaged via the Explore button. So open Explorer by normal means and drag any selection of tracks on to the Playlist Area.



Notice that in this case a (Meta Data) Gallery was used - this works out all the same as with real tracks.

You can also drag a folder or complete folder structure :

But be careful not to select a 1000 albums at a time.




Drag from another player



So notice that by this means you can use another player of your liking to select albums etc. and play them through XXHighEnd.




Load Items in the Library Area by means of Embedded Explorer

Start with selecting the Library Area by means of [ L ] in the top. Next :


Here the Abdullah Ibrahim main folder was clicked and all the Abdullah Ibrahim albums load in the Library Area. Next you can load one or more albums from there (like double click or use the Load button - see above).




Drag album from Embedded Explorer to the virtual Playlist Area

Again start with selecting the Library Area by means of [ L ] in the top. We called the Playlist Area "virtual" because it is not visible. Still, if we drag from the Embedded Explorer to the right, it will be loaded in the Playlist Area and the Playlist Area will get active.



We see (above) that already during dragging, the Library Area is replaced by the Playlist Area.



Dragging all from Abdullah Ibrahim (and more) is also possible :


Be careful not to accidentally drag a folder of a too high level (containing 1000+ albums).

Rightclick in the left pane (empty area) to show the Coverart Pane which normally shows with the Playlist Area active :





Or back to Embedded Explorer (rightclick on the picture) :






Copy-Paste from Explorer

Copy :



Paste from URL :


This is also allowed to be a folder (structure).

Notice that the copy from URL option does not allow use URL's to the sense of that implying the streaming of the track or album. However, similar *is* allowed by means of streaming from Tidal but this always requires a search (from Tidal) result first. So actually a URL from Tidal can be dropped in the Search screen, next the album is searched for on Tidal, the result shows in the Library Area and from there all works the same as explained in the text(s) above.
Tidal search is outside of the scope of this tutorial.
