Re: [REQ] Remember the level of Tree expansion

Thanks Barry
I use a "sandbox" as well, but all my editing is done in Foobar. I only add to MM after the files have been edited & then transferred to their respective hard drive locations.

Re: [REQ] Remember the level of Tree expansion

@Barry
Your response here prompted me to look at the Location node for the first time. I didn't realise it had it's own tree.
1. IYO what are the main benefits in using the Location node.
2. Is Editing properties from the location node any different from other nodes?

Re: Issue with Search on Compilation albums [#18479]

"variegated" - now i've never heard it called that before. You make it sound almost pleasant, today we had 100k+winds, thunderstorms with massive trees down everywhere. Of course the sun also came out for a few hours which i guess is the varegated bit you refer to. I think the Filter Funnel thingo w...

Re: Issue with Search on Compilation albums [#18479]

Yes your right, i think i've spent too much time in Covid lockdowns. I've noticed that the Advanced Search & View Filter (funnel) both use the same Criteria box and the results obtained are the same. There is one difference though. The View filter persists on the tab bar even when you change nodes. ...

Re: Issue with Search on Compilation albums [#18479]

Yes, i was using those check boxes. Of course, in the example i gave it only finds all the "Various Artists" compilations but if i change the search to: Artist = miles davis Album Artist = Various Artists, Miles Davis Then it finds all albums where Miles Davis has one or more tracks.

Surprise surprise. If i do an advanced search :

Then in the Grid view when i navigate to the album it only displays the miles davis tracks

Re: Issue with Search on Compilation albums [#18479]

In broad terms i do understand navigation & filtering, my issue is how they are applied in the MM5 search process. I would prefer that filtering takes precedence, no matter the view. In our "miles davis" example the Grid view correctly displays the album that contains one or more "miles davis" track...

Re: Issue with Search on Compilation albums [#18479]

@Barry Thank you for the explanation. I was starting to realise that perhaps searching in Grid View was only matching album Artist/Album. I was puzzled though because it was not consistent with their own syntax. I'm glad you clarified that. Barry says ...... "ie. maybe you wanted to take explicit co...

Re: Issue with Search on Compilation albums

In the examples i gave I am at the highest node (Music) therefore the filelisting is the entire library. According to your own definition the Grid view is just another view of the filelisting. The 2 examples i gave aren't consistent with that. ie Why do i get no result at example 1 & a partial resul...

Re: Issue with Search on Compilation albums

I'm still a bit confused about search & various artist compilations in the Grid View. I'll give 2 examples: I've selected the Music node (which is the top level) & i am in the Grid view. 1. in the left hand search area, i type artist:miles davis Result - Nothing (blank screen) 2. in the left hand se...

Re: Issue with Search on Compilation albums

ok, can't say i like the design much.
Could you explain what "search in current view" means and what it actually searches on. ie when you mean "view" do you mean like Grid view or List view or is it something to do with the node your on?

Re: Issue with Search on Compilation albums

The only way i can replicate that is to be in the Album List view. If i change to the Grid View it displays the whole album. I assume by "easy search' you mean when you just start typing in the header Bar. If i do that it always seems to default to "search in current view". artist:miles davis doesn'...

Issue with Search on Compilation albums [#18479]

The Search function for Artists that appear on Compilation albums is flawed IMO. When i search for an Artist i only want to see the tracks relevant to that artist. If i then want to look at the complete album i would use "find more from same album" The current process displays all the artists & thei...
