My Question or Issue

Hey guys,


After the latest update (the one that brought the new UI) I can no longer double click a currently playing folder to restart it; instead, double clicking on the name of the folder would simply pause it and repeating the double click will resume the music being played.


Prior to this update, double clicking a folder would immediately play it anew regardless of whether it's already playing or not.


Could you please take a peek at that? 🙂 Having multiple playlists in a folder, I often feel like I need to shuffle up my queue but now I need to perform extra steps before I can restart a folder (or a playlist, behaviour is the same). There's already the Pause/Resume button in the controls, as well as right under the folder/playlist name, I'd love to instead go back to restarting a folder/playlist if double-clicking the name.
