Tab Sorting By Artist -- Not Artist, Album Artist

Post by StevenDorsey »

Currently my MMW looks like this:
[ Edit: Nevermind, evidently. The Forum Rules say I should use ImageBB to post a screenshot of my interface. And the actual Website says that I'm not allowed to do that...]

Its Collections/Filters or whatever sort according to Artist, and then split the albums of each Artist up by Album Artist. I have never liked this feature in any media player, since I want my Artists to be displayed in centralized tiles. How can I configre the "Artist & Album Artist" tab to only sort my music songs/albums according to Artist?

Yes, Album and Album Artist together makes an Album. This can't be changed.

Not sure what exactly you're trying, but you can do multi-sort by holding down the CTRL Key while sorting on additional columns.

[ Edit: Nevermind, I see what it's doing now. I would prefer if it didn't split the tiles up by album at all, but you apparently can't change that. ]

If Album Artist is the same for all files on the Album it won't split Albums up when sorting on Album.
