Unintuitive (wrong?) play order in Folder Heirarchy view: bottom songs then top folders.


Recommended Posts

I don't know if this counts as a bug, or if I can change this behaviour (I've looked unsuccessfully), but in Folder Heirarchy view of the Library, my folders are organised (e.g.):

A/Artist/Album1/songs.mp3
A/Artist/Album2/songs.mp3
A/Artist/other_songs1.mp3
A/Artist/other_songs2.mp3

Since PA plays music in top-to-bottom order within folders (e.g. within Album1), intuitively the play order within /Artist/ would be:

/Album1/song1.mp3
...
/Album1/songLast.mp3
/Album2/song1.mp3
...
/Album2/songLast.mp3
/other_songs1.mp3
...
/other_songsLast.mp3
/Artist2/

i.e.:

Folders in order, then songs in order, then next folder.

BUT

The order it goes in is:

/other_songs1.mp3
...
/other_songsLast.mp3
/Album1/song1.mp3
...
/Album1/songLast.mp3
/Album2/song1.mp3
...
/Album2/songLast.mp3
/Artist2/

i.e.:

root folder songs in order, then folders in order, then next folder.

Is there any chance this could be fixed?

Thanks!
