Sorting options

Postby BSnyder » Fri Sep 09, 2005 4:06 pm

A suggestion of allowing the display/sort fields to be changeable (add/remove).

for example.

a list of MP3s in a directory .
i want to add the track number to the file name, if i could sort the list by the track number, i could incrementally add the correct number to the name.

But i need to be able to add the track number field to the display bar....

Has an thought been given to this?

I too, would like to be able to rename a bunch of .mp3 files that are sorted by track number.

Or is this already possible and I just haven't figured it out yet? :D

At the moment the column-heading functionality is quite weak. To improve this will take a *lot* of work, as it's quite integral to the way BRU works. So I'm afraid it will be like this for a while.

And unfortunately, I do not envisage ever having Track Number as a column. Extracting data from MP3 files is very very slow.

I suggest you look at JJ Renamer, designed specifically for MP3 files.

Not to worry .... I found a way to work around it. I sort by creation date/time which puts them in track order for me. :D
