Questions / Disable Remove from Disk
« on: October 22, 2013, 18:00:49 »
I right-clicked on a file in my playlist and by accident selected "remove from disk" rather than "Remove from List."  Is there a way I can permanently remove this option?

I had a really tough time trying to retrieve the files.  Not only does it delete them, but I couldn't even go into my recycle bin and recover it because this program permanently deletes them.

Please advise.  Love the software.  Hate the delete option.  No software should even offer this if I want to delete a file I will go directly into the file system and do it myself.  Thanks!

Questions / Re: Sorting by Date Instead of Year

Your question "is it worth it to support date ranges or list of dates ? that would make it much more complicated so I doubt it, but I don't know if it's used or not"

I would suggest yes! 

All of the other music players offer this option (Banshee, Rythmbox, winamp, etc) and I would suggest that this option is the only one missing as opposed to these other players.

Thanks for your reply and taking the time to consider my request.

Questions / Sorting by Date Instead of Year
« on: April 12, 2013, 07:46:38 »
I have some albums and B'Sides of the same artist that published the music the same year, but different dates.  I would like to sort them by release date instead of year.  For example:

I have two singles and a studio album.  The first is a single released in March, following the studio album then another single.

Can I Play with Madness (Single)
Release date: 1988-03-20

Seventh Son of a Seventh Son:
Release date: 1988-04-11

The Evil that Men Do (Single):
Release date: 1988-08-01

I would like to be able to sort them by date, but it instead sorts by year, following alphabetical order of the title track.  I end up something like this.

Seventh Son of a Seventh Son: Moon Child
Can I Play with Madness: Black Bart Blues
The Evil that Men Do: Prowler '88
Seventh Son of a Seventh Son: Infinite Dreams
Can I Play with Madness: Massacre
The Evil that Men Do: Charlotte the Harlot '88
Seventh Son of a Seventh Son: Can I Play with Madness
Seventh Son of a Seventh Son: The Evil that Men Do
Seventh Son of a Seventh Son: Seventh Son of a Seventh Son
Seventh Son of a Seventh Son: The Prophecy
Seventh Son of a Seventh Son: The Clairvoyant
Seventh Son of a Seventh Son: Only the Good Dye Young

So as you can see, and I tried to highlight in red the singles get mixed in with the other tracks by the same artist for the same year.  I would like the ability to sort by year - month - day instead of just year.  Something like yyyy-mm-dd.

I know where I go to add the release date.  That is Song Properties > Advanced Tag Editing > Date.  But when I try to sort, I click on Sort By > Custom, and in the drop-down "Available" filter, I see no option to sort by date, just year.

By the way love this software!  Had to work out a few kinks but love how I have more control over organizing my library.  Thanks for all your hard work with this.
