32.0.20 (2/22/2024)

1. Changed: Theater View movie file info uses full description in large view (v2.3 of templates file).
2. Changed: If middle click closes a tab, it will no longer also fire a mode change.
3. Changed: List drawing supports the alpha parameter on text.
4. Changed: The view header alphabet allows clicks in the space around letters instead of only on the letters.
5. Changed: Removed the keyboard shortcut to flip Playing Now and added a menu choice instead.
6. Changed: The "Name" field is no longer being filled from video file metadata, as its values are largely not desirable and prevent AutoTag (Carnac) from running.
7. Changed: Updated Greek translation (thanks Panagiotis).
8. Changed: Slovak translation updated (thanks Peter Lukáč).
9. Changed: Minor tweak to volume protection so that it works more evenly.
10. Fixed: The handheld filename rule wasn't saving since our change a couple builds back.
11. Changed: Equalizer sliders move 0.5 dB to the arrows and mouse wheel.
12. Changed: Made the alphabet above a file list stretch to the full width instead of being all left aligned.
13. Changed: The alphabet uses the text selected color instead of the text hot color on mouse over.
14. Fixed: Library/CreateField better updates when expressions are changed.
15. Changed: Renamed "Migrate Library" to "Change Media Location" and reworded the instructions accordingly.
16. NEW: Added a Library/DeleteField MCWS function.
17. Fixed: Tab controls didn't stretch to the right since we removed dead space to expand middle click.  Reverted the sizing but handle middle click another way.
18. Changed: IPTC/XMP "Category" and "Supplemental Categories" tags are mapped to "Image Category" and "Image Subcategory" custom fields (instead of "LR Category", and "Subcateories").
19. Changed: Multiple changes to Theater View movie file info template based on feedback (v2.2 of templates file).
20: Fixed: CD ripping could only be initialed from Drives & Devices. Now it can also be initiated from Rip Disc.

32.0.17 (2/13/2024)

1. Fixed: HTML encoded characters (eg. """) in plain text subtitles are properly replaced by their respective characters.
2. Fixed: Removed some dead space to the right of the tabs so middle click works for a bigger area.
3. Changed: Showing the playing file always centers the playing file in Playing Now instead of showing a few files above and below.
4. Changed: Library/CreateField can update a field if it already exists.
5. Fixed: Importing Theater View file info templates with an older version would fail.
6. NEW: Added a "Plain (no border)" cover art drawing mode.
7. Changed: Command+T will toggle the zone but not toggle the layout of Playing Now (even though Command is down).
8. Changed: The flip state of Playing Now is saved between program restarts.
9. Changed: Updated our TIFF library to the latest (makes a crashing TIF somebody sent load).
10. Changed: Made the new confirmation before installing an update an option (Options > General > Advanced > Confirm before installing an update on launch).
11. Changed: Added a help button to the Acquire Images Action Window that links to the wiki.
12. Changed: When acquiring images, the destination path is checked to make sure it can be written to.
13. Fixed: Library/CreateField better updates when expressions are changed.

32.0.15 (2/9/2024)

1. Fixed: Spotlight images in Theater View file info panel were sometimes not drawing properly.
2. Changed: Loading views starts in the saved views folder under the library.
3. Changed: The import and export all templates Theater View tools start in the backup folder under the library (or just the library folder if the backup folder doesn't exist).
4. Changed: Added video definition icon to Theater View movie file info template (v2.1 of templates file).
5. NEW: "Migrate Library" wizard to help update the library after swapping Operating System or otherwise moving media files into a different location.
6. Changed: Spotlight_list() values in file info templates are "hexified" to handle special characters.
7. Changed: Moved the "convert to pre-composed UTF8" into a separate function and allowed it to fix filenames as well as stock string fields.
8. Changed: Updated ULTRA trackinfo plugins by ET.

32.0.13 (2/6/2024)

1. Changed: When a field is deleted, that column will no longer be loaded.
2. Changed: Allow user to specify high version number in Theater View file info template file so that it is never overwritten with defaults.
3. Changed: The after playback expression in Options opens an expression editor instead of just being an edit box.
4. Changed: An expression editor is shown for the Theater View option for playing now expression.
5. Fixed: Closing an empty tab could fail to work in some cases.
6. NEW: Middle-click on the close button will relaunch Media Center.
7. Changed: When toggling the list style of Playing Now, the playing file is shown.
8. Changed: Track Info uses the list background skin color instead of white when drawing cover art.
9. NEW: Double-click on the player text area goes in and out of mini view.
10. Changed: Audio Filename Rule is now simply Filename Rule for handhelds since the rule is used for other media types.
11. NEW: Added a FileExtension expression function.

32.0.12 (2/1/2024)

1. Changed: Use .xml extension for the Theater View file info template backups and put them in "Backup" folder.  Remove old Movie file info template.
2. NEW: Holding the Command key while picking Playing Now opens the view split in the other direction than the setting.
3. NEW: Added a new field "Digital Source Type" for image media type and mapped it to XMP DigitalSourceType tag.  Users can select from a controlled vocabulary list.
4. NEW: Added a new field editing type - PRESET_LIST, which only allows changing field value by selecting from a pre-set list of values.  Currently it is used only for "Digital Source Type" field.
5. NEW: Added new default Theater View file info panel template for movies that shows Spotlight data.  The current user templates are backed up and overwritten.
6. Changes: Multiple args for newly implemented program links. If an app is selected use MacOS to call otherwise vfork for command line executables.
7. Fixed: Crash on CD insertion.
8. Fixed: Crash on tabbing views.

32.0.11 (1/30/2024)

1. NEW: Implemented program links.
2. NEW: Added Options > General > Advanced > Split Playing Now vertically.
3. Fixed: When reading GPS tags from image EXIF segment, Longitude and Latitude were displayed incorrectly, with the degree symbol mangled.
4. Changed: When importing settings from another OS, various settings will be migrated or adjusted to ensure MediaCenter functions properly.
5. Changed: When writing [Comment] field to EXIF "User Comment" tag, MC will determine the encoding method (Unicode or ASCII) according to the actual text, instead of using Unicode for all, to improve compatibility with other Apps that may not handle Unicode correctly.

May it be that I am blind: but I can't find in clean file properties the point that cleaned up the problem with special characters.

Yes, created a separate entry because it's really not related to the other operations, it's Mac only, and leaving room to add functions if necessary.

One problem with the special characters remains. A double-Click on a word with a special character leads to a separation of the word.

Hello, I have a question. I have changed my second monitor on my iMac to a bigger and higher resolution monitor and since then JRiver opens randomly on the primary or secondary monitor. This is very annoying because the album grid view resizes, forcing me to resize the thumbnails again. There is also a problem that I have been suffering from since the beginning and that is that the drop-down menus do not stay attached to the toolbar. This doesn't happen if the window is on a horizontal screen, but on a vertical screen it happens most of the time. Could you please fix it? Thanks in advance.

MC will open on the last monitor it was on when closed.
You can change the monitor used for full screen and display view in options. Search on monitor.

Thanks, but I tried before asking the question and it always behaves randomly. I've tried all combinations: checking open on second monitor in Mac dock options. Checking open on second monitor in the JRiver options. With both checked, with each one independent. But it doesn't follow the instructions and it's very uncomfortable because it forces me to resize all the album thumbnails and columns.
