I have noticed that some album covers on the grid have supplementary graphic markers.

One is a T-shaped arrangement of four white diamonds on a black background at the bottom left - this indicates an imported Tidal album.

But what does a white five-pointed star on a black background at the bottom right indicate?

Are there other such graphics which I have yet to encounter?

Thanks @MattF

Yes, I now see that there is a grey/yellow star under Control:PC => Edit Album which allows me to change this and also cycles through the red cross. And I have also learned I can set this through Touch:PC

So questions:
- how/why would these be set on import? Some of recent album imports have Album Pick set, others do not*
- what does Album Pick mean?
- what does Album Skip mean?

I do not see the discs icons on multi-part sets...

Do you have a reference source? I searched the various on-line manuals and guides to no avail.




* Both volumes of Fripp's "Exposure" were set as "Album Pick" on import but I can manually and independently set one volume to off via Control:PC and Touch:PC

Hi Gianni

I believe album pick comes from the All music metadata, if you go to their website you will see some albums are marked as ‘album pick.
