But in the picture it is the Album Cover view and not the Album and Tracks view. So it doesn't change the size for the Grouping Headers Boxset, Live and LPs

You're right, sorry. That setting doesn't show there. Does changing it in Album & Tracks have any effect on the Album Cover grouping? (I haven't tried it.)

The underline comes from the skin you're using, so if you want to change it you can apply a skin override.

hi I'm new here and I can't seem to get a clear idea how to implement this in my library, can somebody please tell me how?

I think you'll need to familiarize yourself with custom and virtual tags. [Update: Actually, it's more like sorting/grouping settings and layout preferences. You can find more information on the wiki.] Also be sure you read through the whole thread. Ask questions where you run into trouble. We need enough info on what you're doing to be able to offer advice.

I've tried many different skins, but i can't find one, where it is underlined or where i can change the size of it :(

I'm using this skin and it has an underline:

Since we don't really have anything to indicate scale in that screenshot, it may be that the albums are smaller rather than the font being bigger. I guess you could make a wish list request for resizing the font.

SUCCESS

It's too bad we can't make the headers bigger. I'm going to make a wishlish post to see if Steven can make this all a but more simpler by adding better ordering support for groupings



Nevermind, I was doing it slightly wrong- Have it working at 100% as intended!

How did you do that, that the grouping header is bigger and underlined? I tried nearly every possibility to change a font size, but i didn't found the one for the grouping headlines.

@ KoRnFrEaK
johnmillsjr has a very unusual sorting/grouping strategy as he is trying to create an interactive discography view.
He has sorted and grouped by his grouping header and is not used the sub-grouping header.
That's why his header is in a bigger font.

Sorry for my late answer, i was on holidays. I've tried this skin, but it isn't underlined. Is there something i have to activate in the menu? I couldn't find anything.

I know my eyes are old and don't work like they used to, but I don't see an underline in the screenshot. Exactly where is the user trying to get an underline to appear? And are not underlines an option of the font?

As I already explained!
This is why the "grouping header is bigger and underlined"

It's under the album types in the screenshot, and yes it's pretty light. That line is defined in the skin, I thought I even remembered a setting to determine whether it's solid or fades out but of course I can't find it right now.

Thanks. Moving the window to my other monitor I can see it. I guess the two monitors aren't color matched. :-)

Looks like I downloaded it in 2015. I can't remember if I used it or just archived it. And I'm sure my current monitors were obtained a good deal after 2015. So I will give it a try tomorrow.

Thanks.
