Hi there.

I am looking for a way to solve my dilemna.  When I display my view using album and tracks, everything is sorted perfectly.

Studio Albums first by earliest to latest
Extended Plays
Singles
Live Albums
Live Extended Plays

That way is perfect.  It displays that way because for the albumsort value, I formatted it like
 1. Studio Albums // (2002) xxxxx
2. EPs // (2995)
etc.

BUT it only shows Studio Albums as the header in albums and tracks view.

Now I would like to use the album cover view. 

I have managed to sort it by grouping but the order is messed up and i cant solve it.
It shows the grouping order sorted by alphabet.

Is there a way for me to set a custom order of the grouping / release type?

Thank you!

In the menu where you chose to use the album cover view there are also two sub menus called "Sort by" and "Group by" - which settings are you using there currently?

In the "Sort by" menu there's an option titled "Define custom sorting". If I've understood you correctly, you should be able to solve your issue using that option.

I used define custom sorting but it still sorts the grouping alphabetically.

Would you mind sharing your current settings for Group by and Sort by, and also how your custom sorting is defined? It would make it easier to solve the problem. Also, I believe you can manipulate the order of a tag using a virtual tag, but I'm not certain.
