LowLander: "There is plenty of space to the left of the View toolbuttons"

I don't think so.
AFAIK part of the design objective of MM5 was to allow the option of making the Media Tree panel largely irrelevant, with the left hand panel closed most of the time.
This is how I use MM5, the advantage being more screen space for the central panel, and a grateful goodbye to wrangling with, and scrolling through, great long vertical lists.

This way of operating relies upon reserving plenty of space for the breadcrumb menu to grow (see image).
And this left hand space will be required if you are to consider the request to put the terminal nodes back into the breadcrumb menus
ie. Music>AlbumArtist>The Allman Brothers> Brothers and Sisters, like they were in MM4

Yes, I think that the custom toolbar needs to be another line as in MM4:

Changing target to 5.0.4 as this seems frequently requested feature.

Serious regression against rest of MM.
If no tracks are selected then buttons should be disabled.

Fixed to the same level like in MM4.

i.e. actions like 'Convert Files', 'Auto-Organize' are still performed on whole tracklist of the selected node
while actions like Mood, Tempo, Occassion, Quality, My Rating are performed only on tracks that are selected in the tracklist.

=> Fixed in 5.04.2658

Nice addition, but can there be a toggle control on the main toolbar to hide|display the secondary toolbar.
eg. something alongside the piano-looking thing at the left, which toggles visibility of the left hand panel.

It would be good if this requested toggle control was invisible if there was an empty "Selected" list for the secondary toolbar.

I tried option "General: Add directory"
I was hoping that it would give me a way to be able to add a directory to a top level share using the Folders node, when coming from a Pin of the top level Share ... there is no way to do this in MM5 at the moment. This has to be done outside MM5 in Microsoft File Explorer.

The "General: Add directory" option seems to be connected to the wrong action, or the option name is misleading.
It asks for a podcast directory .. ?
