    I use Microsoft’s SyncToy to backup the songs and database to computer #2. I do this when I make changes in machine #1 (I try to always make changes to computer #1). This process only takes a few minutes and then computer #2 is identical to #1. And #2 can be used if there is a problem with #1. You could put SyncToy on both computers to backup to the other computer. You can not make changes to both computers at the same time or the changes in one will be lost.

    Please include the path (folder names) in the search.

    Our previous DJ software included the path (folders) in the search. This allowed us to put any text we wanted in the folder names and then we could use this text in the search. This is much easier than editing the tag information. And the folder name can be very personal, not limited to what is in the file name or track tags.

    I had thought that the DEX-3 search included the path folder names. But Is this correct? I can do a search for just folder names and it did not find the songs that are in that folder. I like to put the year in a folder name and I want it to find songs for that year.

    After I add songs I have to click on a folder to add the new songs to the database, correct. It will not add songs automatically?
    I have a bunch of folders within folders, within folders. Say I have a master folder that has hundreds of folders and folders within folders. Now in Windows I add songs to several of these folders and create new folders with songs. Then start DEX-3. If I click on favorites and then the master folder will it add all the songs?
    If I click on a folder it will add the songs in that folder and all of its sub-folders? But not other folders?

    I plan to upgrade in a day or two.
    It still is not clear to me how the present version adds songs to the database. I use Windows file manager to move songs from one computer to the drive that has the folders/songs for DEX-3 to use. I did add everything to the favorites folder. Then when I start DEX-3 the songs seem to be in the database. If I click on a new folder (in the favorites) the songs are there.
    Please explain how songs are added to the database with the new version. I will continue to put new songs and folders with songs on the DEX-3 hard drive with file explorer before I start DEX-3. Will they be added automatically?

    I like that a thread goes to the top of the forum when someone responds.

    It is within the thread that I would like to have a choice. Have a sticky reply that will always stay at the top of the list. This will usually be a note from PCDJ and would be controlled by PCDJ. But then have the latest reply at the top. Maybe this is reading it in reverse. But this is fast, i don’t want to click on page two (or the page 100) then scroll to the bottom to see the latest reply. I have seen this “reverse” style on forums and like it. If there is 1,000 reply’s think how long it would take to see the latest reply. I would like to be able to set my forum to this reverse style. I want to have one click to select Wishlist then see the last reply at the top of the list.

    ok I click on DEX 3 Wishlist. At the top I see #7270. This one probably should be sticky and always show at the top. Below that I see #7290 Below that I see #7306 and so forth. I click on page two and scroll to the bottom of the list. At the very bottom I see #14890.

    I would like for this to be reversed. When I click on Wishlist I want to see #14890 at the top. Sticky posts are good. I see this on two different computers, both running Windows 10, Chrome browser.

    I changed my display name from ajhj11 to Joe.

    The forum lists entry’s by old dates, We have to change page to see the latest entry. How do I change this so the last entry is the top of page one?

    We will always use the two deck skin. The right click menu shows load in deck 1, 2, 3 and 4. This menu should not show items that are not relevant. It should only show load in deck 1 and 2.

    We are new with DEX-3 but it looks good. The wait list (side list) will be absolutely critical for us. Our DJ gets busy with people coming to the DJ table and the music must keep playing. The side list looks like it will work.

    We have 200 playlists for many types of gigs. And they are long, 100 songs is typical. So getting a requested song to the top of the wait list is very important. Going to the bottom of the wait list to double click is not good.

    We need a right click menu item that will “Load Next”. This means that finding a song with search can go to the top of the wait list with a right click menu selection.

    Also drag and drop should be able to drop a song where we move the cursor to, not at the end of the list.
