Jumping artists when renaming albums

Post by NewtonBoy » Thu Nov 24, 2016 4:42 am

Using the column browser view, with "Genre," "Album Artist," and "Album" as the three columns.

If I change an album name, select a different album, and then return to the original album; the selection goes back to "All Album Artists," and "All Albums" selected, listing all tracks in the main view. It does not return to "All Albums" with the same artist selected as I would expect it to.

How do I make it stop? It's making me crazy.

hi,

if 'original album' means the album you have just renamed: MM just doesn't know WHERE to go as in history album with previous name is stored :)
do it in following way: tap on the Artist name in 'Summary' column - it should do the magic

Thanks. That will work great when I'm mousing.

The problem I have is that I like to use the keyboard to navigate, and sometimes I forget that I've changed an album, and try to scroll through it to get to another part of the list.
