Congratulations on the update!
A new version is always exciting.

I tried to install it in production and like the previous version, the program "hangs" for about 1 minute when starting. (Even graphical interface)
I need to restart the pc to see if it solves it. There is no antivirus other than that of windows. I am using "no sound card" and integrated encoder

RADIO BOSS IS HANDS DOWN THE BEST AUTOMATION RADIO SOFTWARE AVAILABLE!

when the program starts, could it make the scheduler "enabled" as the default ?
this has been a "bug" for a while but seeing you are now beta in 6.1 might be a good tweak

Theoretically this is possible if you have lots of tabs, work zones enabled, and the PC is not very fast. It needs to compute positions and sizes for all those controls. We don't see this behavior here even on slower notebooks, so I'm not sure if it can be fixed from within RadioBOSS.

Thanks, will be fixed in the next update.

Scheduler state is saved and will be the same as when the program was closed. If you it ON it will stay on when you restart or reinstall RadioBOSS.

I have a teaser overlay problem with a file type. The error appeared in RB 6.0 and is still maintained
Can you please specify what's not working there?

It works like a charm. Is it possible to no repeat a track longer than 1 week in the playlist generation. Or is this do it yourself? The longest option is one week;-)

Some suggestions:

- The playlist colouring tab is good. Occasionally when clicking and dragging the playlist tab, it doesn't always drag with the mouse. If you try and click and drag the same tab a few times in a row, it works sometimes but not every time
- The playlist colouring font colour would be good to be able to change as well - otherwise dark colours won't work with black font for example
- Workzone 2 tabs would be good to be able to colour change as well (font / background)
- Additional zones would be good to hide the title bar when the main radioboss window is in full screen mode

Ad Scheduler
- Is it possible to retain the old view? If we cycle through our list of files to quickly scan for priorities/start/finish dates, we now have to click into each file one by one to get that information instead of pressing the down arrow in the list and making sure everything is configured the way we want. If priorities are used (which we use), the new view doesn't show this information easily

Music Library
- Regarding the 'makelibrary' command, if music tracks are moved into different folders (e.g. C:\Music\Rock\RockA.mp3 gets moved to C:\Music\NewMusic\RockA.mp3) will the makelibrary command remove the old entry, and add the new entry, when it is updating the library?
 
Only 1000 songs still appear in the music library even though there are more! ... can that be corrected and that it can appear all, no matter the format? ... Thank you !

In the music library only the style windows and style Aqua light Slate is working, in all other style the main window is white with white font

Die erste Sendung mit der Beta in meinem Webradio verlief einwandfrei. Kein Aufhängen keine Störungen nichts. Super. Nur das mit Automatic-Intro habe ich nicht hin bekommen. Nachdem ich das eingeschaltet habe lief nur noch Intro. Da muß ich wohl noch üben. Ansonsten nix zum Meckern
 
Good evening
I installed version 6.1, but even by restoring the settings I no longer have, for example, the file types, my encoders and also I no longer have my playlists
Have a good evening
Regards
