Hi, the sort function isn't working for me. I mean when editing album information and I specify what name I want the albums to be sorted by. It's not working.
Any help appreciated.
Thanks.

Just saying something doesn't work isn't very helpful. More detail would be needed in order for anyone to offer some help.

For instance, an example album. What name are you specifying and how is it sorting? And how/where are you setting up the sorting? Are you using the Sorting tab in the Tag Editor? Are you using Sort By and Group By?

Hi, yes I'm using the sort function in the tag editor. I have my albums ordered by year of release but I might have an album by Neil Young & The Promise Of Real that I want to sort just by "Neil Young" so that it is in order, but such albums still come up further on sorted by the full artist name.
I'm sorry if that is confusing.

Thank you. It looks like I hadn't ticked the "enable custom sorting" box.
