Title: How to sort (please help)
Post by: StardustNightwind on May 18, 2019, 04:00:36
Please enlighten me, how to sort so that one album containing a different artist in every track does not end up split like it's 10 albums?
I see English is a very big problem here and Artem seems to be having problems understanding English users' questions, so I have made a screenshot. Thank you.

Maybe you should make a menu component gui for sorting instead of useless code sorting. I tried the useless codes but it doesn't work at all. AIMP completely ignores the sorting strings I tried.

You should switch off grouping in playlist - refer to the context menu of playlist tab and select the "personal settings" menu item

I can't find what option you mean and I disabled grouping in settings but nothing changed. Please provide a screenshot explanation.

May be I don't understand correctly what you want to get in a playlist?

Yes, sorry I should have explained more precisely: How to sort in the "Main Window" by Album? See the album with the blue cover "The Regret of The Stars", it is already sorted as one album in the "Local Files" playlist, but in the main window it is split into 6 Albums because it is a compilation. How to use sorting to present it only by Album name not by each artist per track?

Please look at this new image explanation.

Also, about the playlist, when I double-click an album, why does it start at the bottom of the playlist? Currently playing items should start at the top of the playlist. How to change that?

This is not a "Main Window", this is a Music Library. To customize grouping settings, click the right mouse button on the "expand" button and select the "customize" menu item. Now, select fields that will be used for grouping.

I can't find that. Can you please make a screenshot of that?
