Although I was initially put off by some of the interface changes in DT3, I’ve found adapting to them and a range of other options has increased the usefulness of DT for me. I’m more than pleased with the now not-so-new version.
One remaining point of frustration for me concerns thumbnails for audio files. In DT2, when I added an m4a or mp3 that had embedded artwork (like a podcast episode), that artwork would automatically become the item’s thumbnail. Now, however, all such files show with a generic (iTunes) audio file icon as thumbnail. Trying to create a thumbnail using the contextual menu does nothing. As a result, to get the same result as before, I have to open the file with another program, copy the artwork and paste it into the thumbnail area of the Get Info window.
In the Preferences window, under Media, I have all of the options under “Create Thumbnails” checked, and I have had them that way since I installed DT3. Is there a setting, regular or hidden, that I’ve somehow missed?
