This section provides options for how the menubar behaves.

Auto Show/Hide Menubar

This switch allows the menubar to automatically hide when a song is picked using the Songs Menu. Tapping in the middle of the screen can then show the menubar again. If Auto Show/Hide Song List is enabled, showing the menubar will also open the song list. Default is off.

Auto Show/Hide Song List

This switch allows the song list to automatically hide when a song is picked using the Songs Menu. The song list can be opened again by tapping on the Songs button, through an action or by showing the menubar when hidden. Default is off.

Prevent Menubar From Hiding

The visibility of the menubar automatically toggles on and off when you tap in the middle of the song viewer. You can disable any kind of menubar toggling by turning on this option. The first time the user taps in the middle of the screen, a prompt appears to configure this setting. Default is off.

Statusbar Hides With Menubar

When you hide the menubar, the statusbar also hides to create as much space for the app as possible. You can disable this to keep the status bar active along with the current time and system information.

Reverse Menubar

Some users prefer to have the Songs Menu on the right of the screen. You can flip the menubar to mirror it's contents by turning this option on. Default is off.
