    Try the other "right hand side" (left or middle)

    That icon/button does not show up on either of the Windows or MacOS apps that I have installed.

    I am using Windows/MacOS versions 3.8.3 with BluOS 3.8.17 on my Node 2i.

    That's weird, but it "could" be related to your screen resolution. Those buttons will be truncated/invisible if the resolution isn't wide "enough". (abt. 1100 px).

    My Windows screen resolution is 1920 x 1080 with a landscape (wide screen) display and my iMac resolution is similar. Bluesound have a serious problem of compatibility with either operating system if they are unable to show icons at this resolution. The whole point is that icons of this kind are supposed to scale to match the screen resolution.

    Hello Gordon, 

    Its very odd that the repeat button does not show in both versions of the BluOS app. I imagine you have already maximized the window? If uninstalling/reinstalling the app does not fix this, please send our support crew a support request via the BluOS app's Help > Send Support Request so they may look at this further. 

    In the meantime, you can use the shortcut CTRL+R in the BluOS app when you have music in the queue to toggle the repeat functionality. Since you're doing it without seeing the button change, the order is No Repeat > Repeat At End > Repeat This Song.

    PS Bjørn, you have excellent musical taste. 

    Regards,
    Sam R.

    OK, now I understand what is going on.

    I misunderstood Bjorn's comment as referring to the screen resolution but it is the window size that matters. Yes, if I increase the horizontal window size sufficiently the shuffle & repeat icons appear (along with other icons). The threshold for window width is about 1125 px for the icons to show up. This is a bizarre programming quirk - I assume that the icons have minimum pixel requirements which don't scale properly with window size. I thought that any interface designer today would be conscious of this problem, if only because of the need to deal with a multiplicity of phone screen sizes & resolutions. I would suggest that you add this to your FAQs.

    On the related issue of interface design, why don't you provide a light mode option? The dark mode design is horrible.
