Drag from title pane onto genre pane to set genre property on radio stations
Submitted by Stefan W
I added a number of Internet radio stations today by clicking on links to .pls files on a web page. Firefox prompted my to open them in Rhythm box or save to disk. Opening them in Rhythmbox added them to the "Unknown" genre in the "Radio" source. Fair enough.
My first instinct for categorizing these streams was to try to drag them from the right-most "Title" pane and drop them onto one of the genres in the center "Genre" pane.
I ended up categorizing them all by right clicking or pressing Alt-Enter (why is that listed under the "Music" menu and not under "Edit"?) to bring up the properties dialog for each, pressing tab twice to focus the "Genre" field, carefully typing a genre name, and pressing Alt-C to dismiss the dialog (why doesn't Enter do that?).
Suggested usability improvements:
Dragging a radio title from the right-most pane and dropping it onto a genre in the center pane should change the genre property on that stream.
The genre field in the stream properties dialog should search/suggest-as-you-type from the existing genres (as in web browser address bar or form history).
Pressing Enter in the stream properties dialog should close it, saving the changes (Esc seems to do this).
Pressing Esc in the stream properties dialog should close it, reverting any changes.
The stream properties dialog has two tabs but they're both very short and simple. They might as well be combined into one so all stream properties are visible at a glance.
Other information: I am using the version from Ubuntu 6.10 "Edgy Eft".
