  • I sent a log a minute ago.

In the albums view, when I try to use the A-Z bar to get to H-L, Poweramp scrolls to a spot partway through the Gs. The expected behavior is to scroll to the correct letter. For example, when I select H, it should scroll to the beginning of the albums by artists whose names start with H. I have many albums whose artists starts with H, I , J, K, and L, so the problem isn't that there aren't any albums to scroll to.

I've also had this problem around the U-W area. When it was occurring there, it did not occur in H-L.

What Library Category and List Option Sort Order are you using? I've tried in Albums mode, sorted by Artist, and it seems to work fine. The top of the screen (or occasionally the middle of the screen, not sure why?) is displayed to show the first line that contains the requested letter group. Or, if it's missing, where that letter would have occurred - e.g. I appear to have no 'L' artists, so the top line shows the last of the 'K's and the first song of 'M'.

For a while I've been noticing that the Jump To Letter function on the right side of the albums list overview doesn't work for some letters anymore. And it has gotten worse. When moving down the alphabet on the right, it now only works fine from A to L, then stays on the same album until moving to letter U and then works again from U to Z. I have already reset and fully re-scanned the library, but to no avail.

If I switch to the folders list of the library I can jump to any letter without a problem, it's only happening on the albums list, and only if I sort the albums by artist, which happens to be the way I want to sort them.

Any help will be highly appreciated.

Mine works Flawlessly, I hardly sort through albums, I use all songs category, but if you said it working on all songs category then, I'm thinking albums with those alphabet are not in the album library, then check the screen sensors, rotate your phone  screen and try, if same, then check the files, maybe they are not there.

Thanks for the suggestions! I tried  changing screen orientation, but the issue persists in both landscape and portrait mode.

Also, there are definitely files in the skipped albums: I can navigate with the A-Z bar to the skipped folders in folders mode for example. The error only happens in albums view.

Re-scanning folders and also a full re-scan haven't helped either.

If it helps, I'm on Android 10, Xiaomi mi a2 lite, latest Poweramp version.

Sorry, still can't replicate this. Tested all letters in Albums Category, with List Options set to sort By Artist, as you mentioned.

The only slight irregularity was that tapping 'D' from the side-bar did show the D list as expected, but with the final entry of 'C' showing at the very top of the page rather than the first 'D'.
