Please bring back the ability to adjust the width of some UI elements, including playlist columns (song, artist, album, date added, length).

 

Thanks,

Marked as new idea and edited the title slightly to make it easier to find via search. ;)

Yes, this is of great annoyance since the last update.

 

I listen to a lot of baroque/classical music, and very often the song names include, composer, work, catalogue number, etc, making the name really long and having to read towards the end of the song name to identify the track. Have a look at the following example:

 

Spotify, cant adjust.PNG

 

A workaround is to zoom out until everything becomes small enough to fit the entire song name, however this is quite clumsy.

 

Please fix this spotify!

 

PS: This should be filed as a bug IMO. It was broken during the last update.

Yes, Fix the columns. How will I know what the album title is? Also, No more cut and paste feature? Please go back to the older version. Thanks, Greg

This is absolutely true and driving me nuts! I already hated it when you couldn't resize the columns in the search results, but in my own playlists, this is a no-go.

 

Especially annoying when one of the other columns only uses a small percentage of the available space. I also don't care about the "Last added" or whatever it is column. Please fix this, this is clearly broken.

Why does this update improve upon the older version, since it takes useful features away?  I'm amazed its proposal got approved.

Seriously! This is a must! Why is "date added" so huge and "artist" so tiny? 

 

What made you think removing this was a good idea? 

 

Really want this back.

Yes, I agree with all the comments. Make the columns sizeable and make which columns are displayed selectable. Why would I prefer seeing that a selection was added "11 days ago" but not be able to see the full name of the selection?

Missing this feature since the last update. 
Question on Twitter

 

Now I can't see featured artists on a song.

 

Thanks!

So when are you going to fix this problem or should I get my money back?

Me too Spotify! Upgrades shouldn't throw away existing features; just add and improve. Ever look at classical titles, or Grateful Dead? Nothing fits in the tiny space. Please let us adjust column width; and while you'r fixing this, how about letting us put the columns in whatever order we like? Easy stufff. Thanks!
