Hey.
Is there a way to add words in the list of that to be ignored in the sorting of artist/album/track titles?
For example, the word "the" is ignored in artist sorting is such a way that an artist named "The Musicbee" will be sorted in M rather than in T.
See, I would like artist names starting with French and Spanish determiners, and perhaps other such words, to be treated in the same way as English artist names.
Thanks!

No way! This is so awesome.
Is it case sensitive?
I assume I need to separate the words in the field with a semicolon(?).
Thanks!

Use a comma to separate the words/letters/numbers/symbols. I'm pretty sure it's not case sensitive.

Cool. Thanks, Phred.
Also, by curiosity, I was wondering if the words in the "ignore" list will exclusively be ignored at the beginning of a title or also in the middle of it, even though this question will probably never be of any practical use. 😂
Thanks again.

Since it applies to sorting, it will be used at the beginning of the title or artist

Cool.
By the way, I tested with both semicolons and commas, and only commas will work for separating the words in the list of words to be ignored.

Thanks for the help!
