Description

1) Library often forgets that I have chosen a certain sort mode

2) If I've chosen to sort by Artist, then sorting must be done strictly in this order:

Artist -> Album Name -> Track Number -> Track Name

Currently it's not always so - see the attached screenshot

History

#1 Updated by John Lindgren almost 10 years ago

It may seem backwards, but what you need to do to accomplish the sort order you want is this: sort the playlist by title, then by track number, then by album, and finally by artist.

What about the fact that Audacious often forgets the last chosen sort mode?

I cannot tell when exactly it happens, probably if you SIGKILL Audacious.

#4 Updated by John Lindgren almost 10 years ago

Losing config or data of any sort on SIGKILL is never a bug. SIGKILL means the application is terminated immediately, and it has no chance to save anything. That's why you should almost never use SIGKILL. Use SIGTERM instead; that gives Audacious a chance to save things and exit cleanly.
