Of course, there is one more possibility to achieve what you want, even with the freely available version. You should create one new Collection with the criterion: Rating <> 0 stars, then you could move all your wanted Magic nodes to that Collection, but then again, you will have to do that for each node, so you will have the same number of required steps as with the Filter solution.

Yes, you should write that in the Filter text box of each wanted node if you are using the freely available version of the add-on. The donation-only version has an ability to assign some Filter to any Group of nodes just once, which will automatically affect all contained sub-nodes. Here is the relevant part of the What is new section:
* Added: possibility to specify Filter qualifier to the group MN nodes, i.e. the same filter could be applied to several MN nodes belonging to the same group (the group filters are AND-ed with global filters for particular MN node)

By the way, English is not my native language either. ;)

Did you try "<Rating> <> 0"?

Hmmm... Then I should write this in SQL field of each node. How to achieve my goal in the minimum number of steps? Is it possible? Sorry if I don't quite understand explain. English isn't my native language :roll:

Thanks for putting this on the ToDo list. :)

Well, I cannot remember if I did anything for that behavior either, but now when you mentioned it, I found that it has an option for that. I am just wondering which option is default in its Sort method combo box.

It is not currently possible, but I put it on my ToDo list. Thanks for suggestion.

But if it is not possible to have such sorting in my magic nodes then that's the way it is. Thanks anyway! ;)

You are right. I don't know why Windows Explorer has such sorting, but in my opinion it is unexpected and incorrect. Total Commander doesn't have such sorting. My Computer node in MM Media Tree doesn't have such sorting either. And most importantly, SQLite, on which MM database is based, doesn't have such sorting.

Thanks for answering. And I understand the problem... But why these folders are sorted correctly in Windows Explorer? Aren't the folders textual fields also?

Your entries are correctly sorted. You are sorting textual field, not numerical, so you have alphabetical order. Your only solution could be to set all numbers to have fixed number of digits, e.g:
Deep Dance 001 + 002 - Deepest Deep
Deep Dance 003 + 004 - Starship Countdown

I hope that I'm in the right thread to post my question... :)

I created a node "Sampler" with the following mask:
Sampler|Filter:Songs.Album <> '' AND Songs.AlbumArtist = 'Various'\<Album|statistic:Max(Year)>\<Disc Number>

This mask works and all my "Sampler" are shown. But how is it possible to get this mask sort the entries correctly to the right numbers?

Now it looks like this:
Deep Dance 1 + 2 - Deepest Deep
Deep Dance 125.5
Deep Dance 147
Deep Dance 148,5
Deep Dance 3 + 4 - Starship Countdown
Deep Dance 5, 6, 7 - The Digital Dances - Compilation I


But I want to have this sorting:
Deep Dance 1 + 2 - Deepest Deep
Deep Dance 3 + 4 - Starship Countdown
Deep Dance 5, 6, 7 - The Digital Dances - Compilation I
Deep Dance 125.5
Deep Dance 147
Deep Dance 148,5


How can I get this to work? Is this possible? I'm using Magic Nodes V4.3.2.
