    I know Apple wants to push the Coverflow presentation, but column presentation is still very important to advanced and professional musicians.

    What are you looking at, there is no CoverFlow any more but column view is still there. (See below)

    You can do as you wish, are you using Serato?

    ...here are the things i dislike most

     

    - the pop-ups in the search box (PC, cheap, pushy, slows don the computer)

    - that it doesn't auto filter my data base immediately (i have to do an extra click)

    - that i don't have a 'Librabry' in put in my playlists colum browser

    You can do as you wish.

     

    Thanks Csound, I will. I just wanted to let Apple know how annoyed i am by the update. It might help them improve the product.

    My bad, i meant Apple is pushing for 'Visual Presentation' (large icons etc...) VS column view. My UX is slowed down a great deal. I'm frustrated by this update and i hope someone will hear me at apple.

    Click the magnifying glass top right and untick Search Entire Library to restore the old search behaviour

    User issue, I did not realize I had to select the correct view. I must have been on the Grid view when I wrote that, which is nothing but album art.  I have view buttons in the upper right, edit playlist options lower left, itunes options top left, context views in the middle. I have options all over the place and that violates my sense of usability!  Even if every thing is there, the fact that I have to hunt for it is an issue.

    Thank you very much for your reply, like you Apple once upon a time did very well by their customers and by no means am I wishing Apple any reason to fall apart and disband, which although is not a possibility, the powers at be must now focus on keeping up instead trying to innovate. Apple's interface was once brilliant and so user friendly now we have watched iTunes take a league step backwards.

    Im Heart Borken!!!! Im lost with out the old way of using and navigating I Tunes, Which ive been using since 1999. It was so PERSONAL to me. Come on Apple!!! What were you thinking??? You were'nt! Ive been Loyal to you and had some of the best times in my life listening, and making my play list. I still only use an I POD. So now, when I find a song to add to a playlist it dosent even take me back to the location in the libray where I was where when I found it.... You simply cant return to the hot pocket of good music where you were getting your inspiration. IDIOTS. Apple has made it so that after you add the track it just takes you back to the F**ing start!!! How frustraitin!!  And I dont care a toss what song is coming up next, I never did. Excuse me, but thats why i make a dam play list in the first place, it's so i dont have to think about it... just enjoy my music!!! Now Im totally un ispired to even learn all the multitued on new tricks youve played on ME!!! I need to know what and where the LAST song I was listening to came from!!!DAME IT! How STUPID!!! I love my music but now I cant find it in the same way that I was so very used to doing it. Ive was doing it the perevious way for 14 maybe 15 years. Didnt your team even stop to consider the chaos it would cause for people who came to undertand how to navigate the player their own way. I cant even be the slightest tippsy when I want to play a song for a friend... It IMPOSSIBLE to be nothing but ANGRY and stone cold sober!!!  It's a Total Buzz KIll....Apple has taken all the fun out of I Tunes... ALL MY MUSIC!! ALL THE MONEY IVE SPENT! ALL THE TIME IT TOOK ME TO CREAT A LIBRARY WITH DAYS AND DAYS OF MY FAVORITE MUSIC ! My LOYALTY all ripped from me threw this heartless caplitalistic move to make your I Tunes store more important than the way I navigate MY purchasses... I really wish I could have my old I Tunes BAck... Some people might really like the new system... At least give those of us who dont the options to opt out of this one... YOu made a Huge Mistake... Im so sad. It makes me cry... I have so much music that I love and I cant play it the way i want to... Ive had the same stero for longer than I tunes and it hasent change the way I play music on it... I tunes is MY PRODUCT, Not Yours!!!  Dont think I tunes is any more than a glorified stero. I bought into I Tunes so I could use it not be used by it!!!! Ill go to the I tunes stor when I Want to ... not because your forcing it in my face.

     

    Please, I beg of you APPLE Please... go back to the old settings!!! Please, Please, Please.

    And add a spell check to this blog so I dont seem like such a cad when i really want to be taken seriously...

     

    You have Broken my heart and ruined my TRUST.

    Hate s a strong word... But it applies. I hate this new I Tunes!!!

     

    Thank you for considering ME.

    The new version really is terrible.

     

    The only way you could make it more unintuitive is if they went to a command line based itunes.

     

    You might as well officially ruin it by giving it a nice fake leather texture and have it open and close like a book.

     

    Just like you did with Address book and Calendar for Lion!

     

    I've got a nice big library of music in itunes but it's just easier to play some songs off youtube.

     

    Is anyone listening?
