Yes, unless script skin shortcuts actually lets us create shortcuts automatically for our users, it will need to be set manually. But all in all, the add-on does 80% of the work by importing and setting metadata according to your Emby setup. You don't need to deal with kodi scrapers, etc. I've known the struggle for many years, even starting fresh wasn't an option because of how slow of a process it was to insert my library into Kodi. Emby does all the heavy lifting, in a user friendly way and even solves some other issues. As a user, all that's left to do is simply creating shortcuts to what you want on your main interface.
However I can understand there's a lot of options, it's easy to get overwhelmed. This is why a tutorial is on the way, to get over that learning curve.
I would suggest trying with a different skin, and seeing if you get the same problem. If you don't, then mention your issue in the skin thread.
