|Target Version||4.0||Fixed in Version||4.0|
|Summary||0000628: Configurable Toolbar for Shortcuts (favorites)|
If there was a favorites node, then users could be given the option of adding favorites via an interface similar to 'Add Folders', in which they simply choose several favorite folders that should appear in the favorites node.
Another possible way of doing this is to allow the user to just define a set of shortcuts in a folder (like Vista does) and use those as the favorites, and expose them in the shortcuts toolbar.
Note: Favorites node could appear in both My Computer and Locations nodes OR it could just be a toolbar. TBD.

||Note: Users often ask about this in relation to shortcuts to nodes rather than to individual tracks. In that light, it's almost like a magic nodes kind of function.|
I would like to implement a very simplistic version of this functionality for MM4 using the Configure Toolbar functionality. i.e.
1) Make the Shortcuts toolbar configurable so that the user can choose which functions / shortcuts to different nodes should appear within it. That way, depending on how bug 0006504 turns out, we'll be able to set good defaults and users will be able to customize the toolbar to best meet their needs.
e.g. user should be able to configure links to Tree nodes, minimally: each collection, Playlist node, My Computer, Net Radio nodes.
2) Resolve 0005831 so that the shortcuts toolbar can be dragged next to the navigation toolbar, if needed.
Setting to 'high' for 4.0, pending user feedback.
The priority of this issue is dependent on whether 0006504 can be resolved. i.e. if it is completely fixed, this issue becomes a non-issue.
Raising priority back to 'Urgent'. I just reviewed the 'Toolbar configuration' dialog, and it already supports the functionality being described! It's just a question of adding the Shortcuts toolbar to the Configuration dialog.
Note: it has buttons for 'Collapse the tree', 'Go to next view', 'Go to previous view', 'Go to My Computer node', 'Go to Now Playing node', 'Go to the radio node', 'Go to the Web node', 'Go to the Playlists node'. The only thing missing is shortcuts to individual collections, but we can do without that for now.
This seems to have been fixed in build 1318, however, the fix is partial and introduced a regression: Upon editing the shortcuts toolbar, the main MM toolbar gets 'messed up'--all text descriptions disappear and it stops being context-sensitive.
To reproduce: edit the configuration of the shortcuts toolbar by deleting the 'Collapse' button.
--> Standard toolbar gets messed up.
||Note: in build 1346, there seem to be additional regressions: the shortcuts toolbar is removed from Toolbar configuration window!|
||In 1371, this functionality (configurable toolbars) seems to be missing altogether!|
||Work fine here. Anybody else have same problem ?|
||Try a clean install on Win 7--no toolbars are listed in the left hand pane of the configurable Toolbars Window.|
||Fixed in 1373|
This doesn't seem to be working correctly as described at:
Once the user modifies the shortcuts toolbar, it adjusts appropriately, but as soon as MM is restarted, the toolbar disappears entirely.
||Fixed in 1398|
