Go back to the old library layout!

Status: Duplicate Idea
by mark8 on ‎30-01-2013 11:04 AM

I just upgraded to Spotify Linux (preview?) 0.8.8.323 and I really don't like the new white/gray layout! I liked the old (dark) layout. The new one has poor visibility and navigation. It's not very natural and it's hard to get around.

 

I don't know how much my vote counts here, but I liked the older library/tracklist layout much more.

Status: Duplicate Idea

This idea has already been suggested here:
http://community.spotify.com/t5/Spotify-Ideas/New-Artist-Page-Layout-Back-to-the-Old-one/idi-p/24253...

Let's keep the discussion about the new layout at 1 idea topic! Posts/Kudos will be merged soon! ;)

I totally agree on this. And they have also removed some songs from bands aswell now i cant find them anymore.  When i search for tesseract only the instrumental songs from the Concealing Fate comes. The album One has with songs aswell not only instrumental.
PS: Is there a way to report bugs for this?

Agree!

While I probably could get used to a lighter skin (normally I prefer dark ones too) - I totally dislike the incosistency of that new skin. Only Artist/Album view got a redesign (because those elements are now webbased). The playlist view and everything else is still stuck on grey.

 

I've made an attempt with my custom skins to at least adjust the old elements to the new web-based, white elements (that can not be changed). You can check it out here.

 

Anyways, best solution would be the ability to officialy Customize skins!

I agree. I prefer the dark theme as well (iTunes still drives me crazy with their update forcing the light theme). There should be an option to select light vs dark or support Custom Skins as mentioned above (similar to Firefox, etc.).

I agree. I actually created an account on these forums so I could add my support to this idea. The light UI is definitely not easy on the eyes, and I would definitely favor the option to use the dark theme based on preference.

 

This is way too harsh of on the eyes since I use it on an ambient monitor. Unfortunately, if the light UI is here for good, I'm going to have to use another music service. It's that big of a deal!

I agree also with the dark background and this can also be include > <a href="http://community.spotify.com/t5/Spotify-Ideas/Last-client-update-january-28th-for-me-it-needs-option..." target="_blank"></a>

I also agree with this. It makes no sense that the Spotify client sidebar and people list are grey but the middle portion is jumping between white (artist pages and search) and grey (playlists) all the time.

 

Keep it grey as it always was.

What  I would be completely satisfied with would be Spotify letting the user keep his old version and not force-updating. Otherwise, restore the old design and functionality!

I totally agree on this. Je suis complètement d'accord avec vous! I do not like this new search interface! Je n'aime pas cette nouvelle interface de recherche!!! In addition, in this new interface, the current track is no longer highlighted. De plus dans cette nouvelle interface le titre écouté n'est plus marqué. I want to go back to the old version. j'ai envie de revenir a l’ancienne version. Regards.
