Author Topic: Sorting artists by A-Z and then numbers/symbols  (Read 1172 times)

Pretty self explanatory, I was wondering if there was a way so that Artists are sorted A-Z then Numbers, instead of the other way round. I don't know why I need it this way, for some reason my brain wants it so that the list begins with artists beginning with the letter "A" not a number.

The example is about Title, but you can adjust it for Artist too by simply replacing all <Title> to <Artist>.

Excellent works perfectly thank you!

Are you able to remove "1" "2" "3" before Artist name?

Use that virtual tag only as sorting field. It's not intended to replace Artist tag.

Another approach would be to copy that virtual tag values to Sort Artist field using Additional Tagging Tools plugin. Then sorting Artist field directly would work, no longer needing the virtual tag as sorting field. But always test with a small number of files first.
