Could there be a way of having a "show duplicates" only mode for the inbox, or be able to click the column to sort and block them all together?

My use case is that I tend to import in big batches then sift, and it would save a couple of steps skimming the list for the red dots.


Thanks

Are you aware that there's a Duplicate Manager under the Tools menu?

Yes, but I mean to treat the duplicate icon as any other field in the top row of a list view, like bitrate or file extension. That way I get anything marked as a dupe at the top / bottom of the inbox (or other) list.

Ordinarily I use the tool to generate playlists of dupes to work through, rather than the actual duplicate manager. I just can't do what I need to do with it, I'm afraid.

The Duplicate Manager has an option to create a playlist of the dupes.

Indeed, but lets say I have a playlist that hypothetically has 1:1 duplication. There is no way to sort the list so that all the tagged duplicates are together at one end of that list.

If one half were FLAC and the other half were MP3, then I could do that by clicking the "Ext" column.
