To be honest my spotify was upgraded a minute ago and I must say it is **bleep**ed up :( the new interface is horrible. My monitor is 1680x1050 and I see 12 song rows. Everything is huge! Why??? I have a mouse pointer, I'm not using touch screen.
Before all my albums were fit on one page, now I must use scroll to see them.
This is a mistake. Is there ANY way to get back to old interface? Not everybody want to have album title on a half of the display!
It's unfortunate they didn't include an option for setting the font size. I don't think they have any other choice actually. A couple of weeks ago, I saw a complaint from someone who had an 2560x1440 monitor (or in that neighbourhood), he had trouble to see the text because everything was too small. I imagine he is now satisfied with the new look but now people with lower-res screens are only seeing 15-20 songs at a time.
Since we are in a transition period where slowly but surely higher-res screens are being adopted but lower-res screens are still being used by the majority of people, their will always be someone who is not satisfied. An option for setting the font size would help a lot I imagine.
Not true, Floris. If they had any kind of UX management, Spotify would modify the font and spacing sizes based on resolution. It's called responsive design and it's easy as hell. Again, pure laziness from a planning and UX side from Spotify. I'm dreading this update and may go back to blocking updates.
Font size is changeable in C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\Spotify\Data\resources.zip
In the zip is a skin.xml file. There you can change the font family and font size, but i haven't found an option to adjust spacing. Does someone know where that is located? Smaller fonts have no use if the spacing stays the same...
Previously there was a "X more releases" button for alternative releases of the same album. This feature is still present on the web player but in the new 0.9.8 version for the desktop I can't find it anymore.
