More testing on this reveals - The browser & Views show the correct info but the Media Tree does not.
Ahh, I see, that's the difference, I haven't expanded the media tree nodes, but was looking just at the view nodes, thanks.

Same thing happens with other other sub - nodes, eg Artist, Composer, Conductor.
I can replicate the issue 100%

Step 6 is the same as Step 2 ie expanding the sub node to display all the albums that are associated with the Collection

I still cannot replicate, could you please elaborate what exactly are you doing in the step 6) select sub node 'Album' ??
Thx.

Ok - here is the sequence
From the Media Tree
1. select a Collection (say Classical Music)
2. select sub node 'Album'
3. Classical albums display correctly
4. Select Collection (Classical) to contract the tree
5. Select a new Collection (say Jazz)
6. select sub node 'Album'
7. Classical albums previously displayed at 3 display (incorrect)

Issue - Collections - Album sub node displays all albums from a prior & different Collection.
I cannot replicate, I have 1033 albums in my library and I marked 3 albums as Classical Music albums, only those 3 albums are shown under Classical Music collection as expected:

Probably sharing your MM.DB and exact description of the issue could help us to replicate.

Peke
Sorry about this, but i see most of the sub node issues are caused by my own classifications & not because of MM. eg I have many compilation albums which have many different genres but i save the album naturally to only one Collection & of course a number of the genres don't belong in that Collection. I need to think about this and sort it out myself.

If I got you correctly, are you saying that subnodes like Genre show unfiltered collection files with all other files with different path?

I'm now testing the v5 final alpha build
Collections & their nodes still have problems. eg I have a Collection which is defined by one rule which is a pathname. but the nodes eg genre artist etc are displaying tracks/albums with a different path. To my way of thinking if collections have rules then the nodes associated with the Collection should follow the same rules.

I've written before about genres & i still see the same problem. I cannot see why you have to impose your own set of genres. I only won't to see the genres i actually use & i dont want them arbitrarily attached to your idea of what a Genre is. Genre is really a marketing definition & not a universally agreed standard.
The extension 'show all nodes' does not solve this problem.
I will continue testing as time allows

I want to use the tree nodes to find genres ( and artists, albums etc) The tree nodes are where i expect to find searcheable lists. At the moment searches are'nt reflected in the tree. ie if i seach for an artist it brings it up in the grid view but not in the tree.
There is already an extension available to enable the treeview of the left side nodes:
Inside the installation folder there is a folder "SampleScripts":
"showAllNodes.mmip" does the job:
Treeviews on the left nodes.

Installs and works well even under Linux/Wine..

ok i did that but it only changes it in the "grid" view. The nodes in the tree stay the same.

To use an anology, When i go to the supermarket i take a list of items i need. I don't need a picture of every item because i know what things look like. Now when i get to the checkout i notice the staff do need the pictures because a lot of them would'nt know the difference between a parsnip & a turnip.

Just use the view selector arrow and change it from "Genre Categories" to "Genres", it will show genres like in MM4 then (without the extra level of genre categories).
