@slawomir , I apologize, I do not understand what your issue is.  You are saying that you do not get a list of different view types? What version of Amber are you using? Kodi Leia or Matrix? In order to get the latest functionality from Amber, I suggest that you install the Amber repo.  There is one for Leia (https://github.com/bartolomesoriano/repo...-1.0.1.zip) and one for Matrix (https://github.com/bartolomesoriano/repo...-1.0.2.zip).  Update Amber from there.

Please provide me additional information on the issue you are having, so I know better how to help.  Thanks.

Regards,

Bart

@slawomir , thanks for the additional information.  Unfortunately, I do not know what you mean by "bookmarks".  Can you please post screenshots that show what you are seeing? Thanks.

Bookmarks- favorites

@slawomir , thanks for the clarification.  You cannot change the view type on the favorites window.  This is not a skin issue, this is just how Kodi works.

its not logical as in other groups is possible why not in this one?  could you pls deliver this message to the makers of kodi? i dont know if this already is possible in the latest version...

@slawomir , I do not know the technical reasons why this not possible for Favourites.  Perhaps @ronie can shed some light?

view types can only be added to (media) windows. since favourites is a dialog and not a window, it's not possible there.

in the past there's been some discussion on turning favourites from a dialog into a window, but there wasn't too much interest from skinners...
mainly because there's no metadata available for favourites, as you only have a label and a thumb.
with this limited amount of info available, it isn't really possible to create some interesting views.
hi ronie, thank u for your explanation - now i know more  how it works.so ,its not the matter of kodi as bart says but the mater of skin as u talk about skinners...the conclusion is that skinmaker can not add it as the kodi does not allow it , am i right?  if this - what i and many other users would like to have=enjoy it- is technically possible for kodi or skinmaker/s , i dont see a reason to adjust it at last. this way u make kodi more interesting and more pleasant to use it, don't u think so too?
