Absinthequ Posted October 25, 2020 Share Posted October 25, 2020 My Feature Requests: -Being able to see the year in the meta line. -Being able to sort files differently than folders, or at least having the default secondary sorting to be filename rather than by title. -Being able to see the tagged Artist or Album Artist under the sub folder name instead of the current folder you're in. I'm looking for a way to clean this section up, suggestions are welcomed. There's two things that bother me that I think I've slightly touched on in other topics: Having to put the year in front of the folder, and having to put the artist name at the end of the folder name as well. This results in me barely being able to read what the album title is or who the artist is. I have to shrink the cover art down dramatically and got to landscape mode to read most of it. I would love to sort by Year using the sorting option, but then the problem becomes when you actually go into an album, the songs are then sorted by title, rather than by filename. So now my album has the songs all scrambled out of order and folders with mixed artists are now scrambled by song title so the artist is ungrouped from the cluster of songs by them. Defaulting to title is extremely odd. I'm not sure while in song list we are forced to have the same sorting as the folders? If there had to be a default, sorting by filename makes more sense in a folder category. I would love to not put the artist name on the folder for each album also. The problem with this is: you see the current directory you are in listed under the folder name instead of the actual tagged artist name. That is also odd to see the folder I'm in listed under each folder inside of the folder. I can't think of any file exploring program I've ever used where you see the folder you're in, listed under each sub folder name. This gets confusing because I may have different group albums in one Artist folder. For example if I have a folder "Linkin Park", I may have Fort Minor, Dead By Sunrise, Grey Daze, Linkin Park, and solo Mike Shinoda or Chester Benngiton albums in there and under each album it will simply say "Linkin Park". Another reason "Show Titles Only" was a good feature to add. It helped remove that confusion, but I still have to add the artist for the album in the folder name to try to see the differences before clicking into the album/folder.
