Hi,

I've been using Musicbee for a number of years and think it's a great player.

I'm trying to find a way to add Album artist as an option in the main panel. At the moment I can only select Tracks, Album and tracks, Album covers, Artists and custom views. Is there a way to do this?

Thanks,
Pete

Which view are you using?
Download the latest MusicBee v3.5 patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.

Check out the MusicBee Wiki.

From the same header menu where you see the choices you mentioned, select "Set Displayed Fields" and you will see a window giving you all kind of choices on what to display, including "Album Artist" in the Common Fields section.  Drag that over to the right "Selected Fields" column and order those any way you want.

OP is asking for an Album Artists option on this menu, where it currently only shows Artist:



Here though, selecting Artist will already group albums by Album Artist if that tag is populated, so the separate option isn't necessary.
If anything, it's the current menu option that has been named incorrectly.
