Good to know. Thanks!

I will do that! Thanks for your support!

The install of the enhanced version is like with any other previous versions, i.e. it replaces the last installed version during its installation. However, since the new version has many masks added/renamed/improved, it is recommended that you uninstall the old version before installing the new one and when you asked if you want to remove all settings you should choose Yes. Of course, before doing that you should first make a backup of your own created masks to be able to import them back after installation of the new version.

Ok. Thanks for the information about that... :)

If I buy the enhanced version do I have to remove the free version? Or am I able to install this version to my installed version?

Sorry, but no, I didn't. That addition in the changelog is something unrelated to your sorting wish.

Unfortunately, I tried some ideas that I had about it, but none of them was successful. It is very unlikely that your wish could be realized without MM developers applying it into their database using a new SQL collation.

I found out that there was an update for the enhanced version of this addon (v5.1 - 2017-03-07). Did you put my sorting wish in this version already?
In the changelog you wrote "Added: several new ways of sorting masks in the Manage Masks dialog box from the table's context menu".

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:

How I can exclude from my music library all tracks with zero rating? Is there way to do this in the same way such in the standard collection view? Any filter based on criteria "Rating <> 0 stars". I want that undesirable songs were not displayed in all nodes :)

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! ;)
