Wishlist item: A find more link on song Name column items
« on: May 26, 2015, 11:45:34 pm »

You know how MC has that little arrow in the Artist, Genre and Album columns to the left of each item. So that if you click that arrow it "brings up" all the content matching that Artist, or Album or Genre?

It would be handy to have that same arrow on the Name column as well. So when you click it, it will being up all the other copies of that same song name. For example I have about 230 copies of the song "Route 66" by different artists, clicking the arrow by name would immediately bring up all of them. I know song name isn't formally a "container", but typically it is unusual to have only one copy of a song or classical piece in a library with that same name, so the Name can be a container for other artists/orchestras doing the same piece.

Thanks

I agree and have already asked for this (don't think its going to happen ;) ). A slightly unwieldy, but nonetheless handy way to do this is:

Right click on track=>Locate=>Advanced then choose the name field. If you are doing a bunch, it will stick to the last used command area at the top of the right click menu.

Maybe they could add "name" (and composer too) to the short list though, nobody is going to search ratings (or IMO genre for that matter^^) - should be room for that.
