The text format.

typeof: string
The status-specific text format.

dynamic-len:
typeof: integer
Maximum length of the Dynamic tag (Wide/Fullwidth Unicode characters
count as two). The dynamic tag will not truncate any tags beyond their
set length limits, instead, it will attempt to fit as much of the
available tags as possible. It is recommended you set title-len to
something less than or equal to this value, so the title will always be
displayed.

dynamic-order:
typeof: []string
default: ["title", "artist", "album", "position", "length"]
Order of the tags shown by Dynamic tag. The position and length tags
will always be combined in the format [{position}/{length}]. The order
of these tags in relation to other tags will be determined based on the
declaration of the first among the two tags. Absence in this list means
force exclusion.

dynamic-importance-order:
typeof: []string
default: ["title", "artist", "album", "position", "length"]

will be the first to be truncated. Absence in this list means force
inclusion.

default: " - "
These characters will be used to separate two different tags, except
when one of these tags is position and length.

truncate-hours:
typeof: bool
default: true

enable-tooltip-len-limits:
typeof: bool
default: false
Option to enable the length limits for the tooltip as well. By default the tooltip ignores all length limits.

ellipsis:
typeof: string
default: "ā€¦"
This character will be used when any of the tags exceed their maximum length. If you don't want to use an ellipsis, set this to empty string.

typeof: integer
