@cherrystraw Exactly. In fact, radio stations that transmit data on the current stream get a search for a cover from online sources by Strawberry and often a cover will be shown. It is often not the correct one (different album or artist, depending on the tag data sent by the streamer), but a cover at least.
If I wanted to make my own compile I could replace the baked in cdcase.png with my own, but I do not want to get involved in that. I assume the developer group scouts this forum and will see the suggestion and hopefully find some value in it.
an optimal implimentation would be Shift/meta/alt/ctrl + scroll to increase decrease size on the fly without going into the menu or the typical elektron method of ctrl+ + or ctrl+ - for increase or decrease
Since my last monthly system update of Manjaro this weekend the player and playlist controls respond to touch (Strawberry still 0.9.3). I dont know which other updated package caused that, but it works to my satisfaction.
So this request is "solved".
