Media Library needs face-lift!

hi all,

I've created a 'new view' in the Media Library and have added a new directory named 'pop'. Next I created another 'new view' so as to add the directory named 'country' ONLY. That is, the new view should ONLY contain the directory 'country' but that does not happen since, it already contains the songs from 'pop'

When creating a 'new view' why isin't it empty and why does it have to contain previous contents? This way one can add multiple directories without having to edit the 'QUERY' fields..The folders are not visible too..


The EDIT QUERY is pretty complicated...How about adding some drop-down menus or radio buttons to make it simpler to use...Wildcard characters would be a great help... Btw, how come the playlist does not have these 'VIEWS'?

thanks

You're obviously doing something wrong then.

Right click view -> edit view
copy+paste the "query" fields you used here


btw, in 5.0 final
the "File" and "Manage Playlists" menus will include
"open Media Library view results" submenu

hi

This is what I'm trying to do:-

Quote:
type = 0 & artist = "Shania*" "Darren*" "Baha*"
What should be displayed is items matching Shania Twain, Darren Hayes, Baha Men...

Btw, is it possible to load separate directories in different 'VIEWS'? Cause I have to keep editing the 'VIEWS'...

thanks.

The query should have been :

type = 0 & (artist has "Shania" | artist has "Darren" | artist has "Baha")

You may be glad to hear that a simpler editor is available in the latest versions.

Will the "advanced" editor, if you will, still be available as well? for those of us that are familiar with boolean search strings.
