- Copy the whole directory anywhere you want and just launch the program.


- Audio files or directories can be dragged & dropped into the tune list.
- Clicking the album cover image thumbnail opens the image in a separate
- Internal playlists are much quicker to load than external playlists.
- Selected tunes can be added to the selected playlists by "Add to playlist"
menu item or with the Cmd-L keyboard shortcut.
- The "Edit properties" menu item (I) can be used to edit information of the
active tune. It can be used to add a custom cover image, rating value, or
override values obtained from the file. Relative volume compared to the
master volume can also be adjusted there.
- If the cover image display is enabled, the program looks for an image in
this order:
1) if an image has been set for a tune in the Properties window
2) if there's an embedded image in the loaded audio file (MP3, OGG, FLAC)
3) if the Search File setting is enabled, a separate image file (JPG or PNG)
is searched from a tune's directory with this algorithm:
1) if the directory contains less than 50 files and the found image file
name starts with a "cover", "front", or "albumart" word
2) if the image file name contains the album name
3) if the directory contains less than 20 files, any image is taken
(also GIF and BMP are accepted)
4) if the image file name starts with the word "folder"


Program settings can be found in the program's pull-down menu and they will be
saved to the ENVARC:Hollywood/com.wmhost.jpv.rnotunes file.
