That's cool Steven. It's not exactly a major thing that I'm going to be waiting for with bated breath, so I'm happy to wait for if and when you have the time.

Ditto!

Hello Steven

I would like to suggest, if possible, of course, the implementation of a second sub-header, as I believe it would improve the organization and the looks of the library regarding some albums in particular.

Let me explain myself.

I make use of both the SETSUBTITLE and the GROUPING tags, the first for labeling a whole section of an album, mostly discs, when they are labeled by the artist on the release (for example, “Disc 2 - Live at Somewhere”), and the latter for labeling a few tracks within a section of an album (for example, for “acts” or “movements” composed of a few tracks each but within the same section, ad thus within the same setsubtitle; or for labeling “Bonus Tracks” the last three tracks of Disc 1, and so on).

By using functions to create a virtual tag I’ve managed to display both of the tags in the sub-header, but as only one sub-header is available in the settings, all I can manage to do is, when a track is, for example, the first of the section and the first of its act, is to display the SETSUBTITLE and the GROUPING tag side-by-side in the same line, when I think the ideal would be to display first the SETSUBTITLE sub-header (the section) and then, on a new line, the GROUPING sub-header, followed by its track(s), as there is effectively an hierarchical organization (as the acts are part of the section).

I’ll provide an example.

What I manage to do now with one sub-header and a virtual tag:

Disc 1: Rock, Scissors, Paper - Act 1: Rock
Track 1
Track 2
Act 2: Scissors
Track 3
Track 4
Act 3: Paper
Track 5
Track 6

Disc 2: Live at Somewhere
Track 1
Track 2
Track 3
Bonus tracks
Track 4
Track 5

What a second sub-header would allow to be done:

Disc 1: Rock, Scissors, Paper
Act 1: Rock
Track 1
Track 2
Act 2: Scissors
Track 3
Track 4
Act 3: Paper
Track 5
Track 6

Disc 2: Live at Somewhere
Track 1
Track 2
Track 3
Bonus tracks
Track 4
Track 5

In the examples above the disc names are in the SETSUBTITLE tag, whereas the acts names and the “Bonus tracks” mention are in the GROUPING tag.

I hope I was able to make myself clear.

Any chance this can be implemented?
