A couple quick questions. I've been using this for years and love it so thank you for your hard work, it's much appreciated.

Question 1: Before, when I would add an addon into a super folder, it would always carry over the addon description. However, now when I do it, in 'Description' it seems to always puts the description as "ListItem.AddonDescription," is there a setting I'm missing somewhere? I'm on the latest version on Xonfluence skin.

Question 2: I recall being able to copy and past metadata for an addon. I've completely forgotten how to do this. I see the copy option, but don't remember how to paste it as it's not coming up in context menu.

Any help would be appreciated.

1 - sounds like a bug, I'll take a look

2 - once you have copied (via the SF global context menu), go to the item you want to paste it to, then open the context menu and select Edit Super Favourite, from the next menu select the item you want to paste (e.g. Metadata, Thumbnail or Fanart) and then select Paste. Hope that helps.

Does the addon have the option to open its settings via a list item? If so you can add that to SF.

Failing that you could write a small Python script:

And create a RunScript Favourite in SF to run that script:

import xbmcaddon
xbmcaddon.Addon('the addon id').openSettings()
