Hi,



I'm working on some modifications to the Touch interface.

There haven't been any updates to it for a really long time and I'm sorry
for that.

I have changed the menu on top to text-based instead of icons as I
understand this was preferred and also done some other tweaks to make it
look better.



What I'm trying to do now is have a fixed number of items on every page when
browsing music.

I want to avoid the use of the scrollbar since this isn't very attractive on
a touch-screen but changing the number of items in the settings won't work
if there are a lot of items starting with the same letter. My music library
consists of about 60 artists starting with 'A' and I can't get this divided
on 2 pages with 30 artists on each. Does anybody know how to do this? Either
by having multiple 'A's on the pagebar or any other solution that you can
think of.

How about a button with 'A-Am' and one with 'An-Az' on? Obviously you'd
need a rendering library to render the text in buttons.
