Add the ability to scroll track names in playlists, search results and for the loaded track

This has bugged me for years now, so I thought it was time to post it.

When searching for a track, looking through your playlists, or after a track has been loaded, it only displays so many characters and does not scroll the text. It’s particularly annoying when you’re scrolling through search results or your playlists where you may have different versions of the track, so you’re not able to easily see which is the right version/remix of the track to select, particularity with the different variations users label tracks, e.g. it might look something like this:

Track name here…
Track name here…
Track name here…

Where each one is a different remix, but you can’t tell which is the one you want, unless you happen to know the track length and/or BPM, as they’re the only unique identifiers under this circumstance.

An option to scroll the text would help, but could be annoying if it is was doing this all the time for all songs that meet the requirements, so how about making the track names scroll left and right using a finger swiping action to be able to read the entire track name.

Oh yes please, so easy and sugested so long by now… even in djay 2 already! Please make this happen!

+1 support this.

Even more: Show the search result full screen. And not just in that little popup window.

It would be amazing to be able to change track names, and display checkboxes like - artist, title, time, scale, and more… because if the track name is too long it’s impossible to see it all today.

It would be great to see the full track names INCLUDING the remix names…

I have heard from a few users that would love to see some development around a solution for track names, search, scrolling text etc. Hopefully this can be upvoted to be considered…

Are we ever going to get scrolling text for song titles/artists?

Hey @Ronnie_Stott ,

Thanks for writing about this here in the Community.

I went ahead and merged your post to this thread, since they’re addressing the same topic. Feel free to vote on this suggestion if you’d like to support it.

Have a nice day!

Can you make the font size the same as the artist so you can see more of the song title.
Also, why the 3 dots, obviously they let you know there Is something else missing, but you can’t see it. You could if it scrolled.

Why not scrap the three dots and put more letters.
