Tree view does not have "All" for no-subfolder folders

Post by TLD » Fri Oct 13, 2017 4:07 pm

I noticed some time back that I could use the "All" view for subfolders in the tree view to see all artists and albums in the folder and subfolders. Today, I noticed for the first time that the view does not contain an "All" view for folders containing no subfolders.

This is convenient for renaming/modifying all of one artist without necessarily needing to select those tracks. Also, if tracks contain multiple artist, this allows me to make the change without selecting each track individually. (So as an example, I have a disc of Sinatra of duets with 15 different people - I renamed him as "Sinatra, Frank" without needing to individually modify each track.)

The same is true of albums - I can rename an album without selecting that specific album's tracks from the folder.

Not sure if this would be considered a "bug", but it would be very convenient to have this available on leaf nodes in the tree.
(I moved one file into a subfolder, allowing me to use the functionality in the meantime.)

What do you think - Can this be done easily?

I don't follow why All is needed if no subfolders are present. The whole idea is to show the subfolder content included with the selected folder through all. If no subfolders are present the selected folder already shows all files.

If you quickly want to change Frank Sinatra to Sinatra, Frank (no matter if multiple values exist) just edit the Artist value in the Media Tree instead of the files.
