Hi, as a 'noobie' I went looking for a way to 'shuffle' my entire library in beaTunes 4.6. Is it not possible? Do I need to integrate it with iTunes somehow to allow this?

Also, is it possible to have the 'Function' keys on the top row, do what they do in iTunes? >> next song >|| pause etc.... only the volume keys seem to work?

And one more thing, can I change the 'volume knob' to a 'slider' like iTunes?.... my volume knob is flaky at best... ⌘^ does nothing.

    Indeed, beaTunes 4 does not have a built-in shuffle function.

    I guess you mean the Media Keys. Unfortunately, those are unsupported as well.

    While music is playing, click on the knob and move the mouse to the left or right. Should work smoothly!

    ⌘^ does nothing.

    That's odd... Have you tried this while music was playing or not?

    Apparently still no shuffle selected playlist in version 5? Trying to not use iTunes at all, but shuffle is pretty important to me. Is it on the dev to-do list?

    Not really. The whole point of beaTunes is to be better than shuffle.

    Workaround: Just create a MatchList with the list you want to shuffle as source.
