To reproduce music, first type in the combo box at the left the directory where music is located, and press enter, or select "Open directory" from the File menu. Available audio files will be shown in a tree structure. Locate the files you want to play, and use drag and drop to append them to the playlist in the right. You can also press double click in a file or a folder to append it to the existing playlist.
Both the tree view and the playlist have search line widgets above them. Typing text in them will reduce the shown items to those matching the introduced words. If you press enter after a search in the tree view completes, the visible items will be appended to the playlist. If you press enter in the playlist search line, the first visible track will be played.
You can modify the order in which the tracks are played by enqueueing them in a different order. For this, press right button click on a track, and select "Enqueue track". Or press Control + RightButtonClick on the track to enqueue.
Similarly, you can signal that playing should stop after a certain track. To do this, select "Stop playing after this track" in the contextual menu as above, or press Control + MiddleButtonClick.
If you make changes to the filesystem, you can quickly refresh the tree view by clicking on the refresh button next to the combo box with the directory name. A key can be also configurated to do this, F5 by default.
