Author Topic: Remove virtual tag group header in album view  (Read 226 times)

So I have setup musicbee to have a large grid of album covers which represent folders in the main panel. This is done by grouping albums with the virtual folder tag
This works well however the folder names are placed in squares next to the album covers. Would I be able to remove the large square folder names so I can just have the small text on the cover art with the "fields displayed" setting.

In short, can I turn this:
into this:
Much thanks

Welcome to the forum zachhambo

Either disable grouping, or if you want grouping, check 'Show Header in a Separate Row'.

You'll won't be able to do this by grouping them.
If you apply grouping, MusicBee will display the group heading somewhere. You can't not show it.

Do you need to group them for this to work?
Can't you just turn off grouping and display that same virtual tag as one of the fields in the Customize Panel... settings for that view?
Bee excellent to each other...

DIsabling grouping does achieve the view I want (No massive labels) but each album art then becomes an album instead of a folder, which is what I am after. Without grouping its simply a normal album cover view which is unusable fo me as I don't wish to scroll through thousands of albums, rather 150 folders. I have mostly achieved a nice folder view except the titles take up half the space as shown in the photo which I was curious if someone had a better workaround to fix it.

If I could modify "show header in separate row" setting to include multiple columns it would solve the issue.
