    And the fast foward doesn't work with podcasts.   Before itunes 11, you could click on the diagonal and move it and go to a specific part of a podcast.  Doesn't work now.  Tried with NPR Wait Wait Don't Tell Me and John Hendrickson Dead Podcast.  Neither work with iTunes 11.  Worked fine before.

     

    Glad I tried this on a computer that doesn't matter first, not upgrading on our main iTune library machine now until this is fixed.

    I couldn't find anything about removing the top/side view option for the coumn browser -

    My advice: read the post from the unlucky ones who thought that updates from Apple ment improvement...

    Could you pls specify the location of the "button that will revert to last version..."

    When writing "go to settings...", are you referring to the iTunes 11 "Preferences" menu?

    When you do a system upgrade, there is a button that tells you the details before you click update and go forward. So, they didn't install it without your consent, you just didn't read it over properly first. I've done it myself in the past, but now I always click the detail section before I move forward with the update.

    So far iTunes 11 is nothing but pain for me. Functionality I consider very important has dissapear. And I've spend hours trying various ways of rolling back to version 10.7. Read on and weep.

     

    1- Most important. I have 1862 books or documents on my iPad (epub and pdf). I regularly delete some and fill in with new. The new iTunes does not allow me to seek among the books in the iPad, it always seeks in the library of the Mac. To understand what I'm saying let's say I have a book called "New iTunes *****" that I have on my hd and want to transfer to iPad (iBooks). Now I cannot check to see if the book is already on the iPad. This is a real game killer for me because I have over 23.000 books/documents on my hd that I may, at some point, want to transfer to the iPad.

     

    2- The missing icon preview on the left forces me to take extra steps in order to change the album/book cover, This is an issue because I have almost a terabyte of such files. Practically all the songs I transfer from my CD collection have no cover art.

     

    3- After I start playback I always minimize the player. It takes very little space on my 13" screen.In  iTunes 10 it was possible to change the volume from the mini player. The new mini player lost this and now shows a tiny pic of the album cover. Wow, if I was 16 I would probably be ecstatic about this rubbish.

     

    I could go on but the above 3 issues kill iTunes 11 for me. Moreover, I'm afraid I will not be able to upgrade to the next OS (10.9) because it will install some future version of iTunes 11. So serious are the above mentioned issues.

     

    Also I am very angry at Apple's attitude towards me as i customer. It should allow me to change back to the previous version if I'm not satisfied. As it is I had to look and find version 10 on the internet. It was not easy to find. Then I re-installed mountain Lion. What happened was that the OS was re-installed but it kept iTunes 11 !!!. There was no other way to get back to 10 but use time machine and restore the whole system as it was 2 months ago when I made the last backup. Writing this makes me extremely angry and frustrated. I BOUGHT OS10.8 so I PAYED for iTunes 10 which was included. Why am I not allowed to use it if I want to?

    It is another thing if a software has bugs and another thing to submit to an almost fascist dictate from Apple on how to use your hardware/software.

    I am a very disappointed customer (exclusively Mac user since 1987) indeed.

    So true. How stupid for Apple to take features away! An upgrade adds features. It doesn't delete them. This is the most pathetic example of where Apple is going. Sell your shares quick!!!!

  • tree_house Calculating status...

    if you have the Time Machine, you can do it, make sure to also restore the itunes library.itl

    I too hate the new version 11. Very simplisitic and not an improvement. Many things that were cool about it disappeared. Also I think I found a bug with it. I am trying to add a folder to it and it is not allowing me to. It is maximizes larger than my screen, so I can't see the corners or slide bar on the right. What is wrong with Apple as they put out this piece of crap. I am currently looking for a premium music player that does everything that Itunes does and more and hopefully is more stable. Any suggestions?

    Zolwixon,

    Can you be a bit more descriptive? I don't see where you can change the access rights in the programs folder and from there I would not be sure how to "run the installation of v.10.7". I know that I am dense but I really wish to revert to 10.7. Please help.

  • nyeastvillage Calculating status...

    Yes, execpyt with the bloody App Store did the update without my authorization when I was only trying to do a Safari update!

  • nyeastvillage Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I hate it too - it is poor quality software - Apple needs to do some work on this thing - bugs galore.

    Well, it seems like they have re-introduced to double search field, that was unified way back in iTunes 10.0(?)

     

    But it works fine:

    Thanks. Worked perfectly. Now back to 10:7. :-)

    johnca, could you please detail exactly how you went back?  Because nothing is working for me.

    indifferent about itunes 11 thus far.

    but this issue requires a few more clicks to be resolved.

    just hit airplay, i know its kind of stupid, and the master volume is there for the computer speakers or what ever your output is.
