How to change how the view sorts

Post by MrVideo » Wed May 08, 2019 9:06 pm

I'm not sure what the far left most view in called. The view button to the left of the view artwork button.

I have the first three columns set to Artist - Title - Album. There are more to the right, but for this particular issue, these three are it.

I have Artist selected as the main sort, ascending. But, the next sub-sort is the Album column. I do not want that, I want Title as the next sub-sort. With each artist I want to see the Titles in ascending alphabetical order. How can I do that? I've not found a way to do it.

Hello,
thank you for trying Guayadeque. The tracks view can be sorted only by one column.

Regards

Enhancement request then: A way to sub-sort. To me it is obvious that when you sort on the artist, that all of the titles by that artist should be in alphabetical order. Makes them a lot easier to find.

When you sort by artist its subsorted by album, disc, track number...

Ya, I noticed that. I prefer that it be artist - title (alphabetical) - then whatever. Maybe an option in the preferences that allows the user to select what the sub-sorts are.
