    Well, I haven't done a very clean job, so maybe I have to clean up the mess a little bit first.

    Plus there are some minor things that can be improved and I also have no idea how I can test it for macOS 10.13 compatibility in terms of UI colors.

    Dear Vivo, i updated my version of Phonix and I just wanted to know, if there would be an update for Phonix with the possibility to enter full screen? And another question I already asked. If I open a music file through finder, the file will open in Phonix, but the player doesn't start to play that file. I have to push the play button and then It starts. Is there a possibility to change that in the preferences or add a function in a further update?

    Hello Eimsbush,

    - About the full screen, forgot all about it will have a look.
    - In the Phonix Preferences there is an option Enqeue and play, or Clear And play, try it.

    Hi vivo,

    - ok, thats's great, thanks!
    - I already tried to change the settings, but it's only working within Phonix. The changes will not have an effect, when I open files through the finder. Phonix just starts, or when already starts, just enqueues the files and that's it.

    Why do you ask? Either use it or do not. It's free and only 6 years of work. I don't mind.

    Its minimalistic without distracting items, using low resources while support current osx features like "dark mode"

    Just does what a music player should, not more not less :)
