Another nice feature for classical music

Post by jwhitworth » Sun Feb 19, 2017 12:04 pm

It would be nice if under my "Work" listing the sorting could account for single digit and double digits as part of a text field.. Currently in MMW4 you get the following:

Piano Sonata No. 1
Piano Sonata No. 10
Piano Sonata No. 11
Piano Sonata No. 12
Piano Sonata No. 13
Piano Sonata No. 14
Piano Sonata No. 15
Piano Sonata No. 16
Piano Sonata No. 17
Piano Sonata No. 18
Piano Sonata No. 19
Piano Sonata No. 2
Piano Sonata No. 20
Piano Sonata No. 21

The only way to get it the way I want right now is to pad with zeros. I really do not want to do that.

Should be:

Piano Sonata No. 1
Piano Sonata No. 2
Piano Sonata No. 3
Piano Sonata No. 4
Piano Sonata No. 10
Piano Sonata No. 11
Piano Sonata No. 12
Piano Sonata No. 13
Piano Sonata No. 14
Piano Sonata No. 15
Piano Sonata No. 16
Piano Sonata No. 17
Piano Sonata No. 18
Piano Sonata No. 19
Piano Sonata No. 20
Piano Sonata No. 21


See example:

To handle situation like this I add an additional spaces, not a Zeros in front of the numbers, still manual work, but looks better.
To implement this request in software, so that all situations would be correct could be quite difficult.

It's not impossible at all. The sort function in Orange CD (a record cataloguing software I use) always sorts 1-9 before 10 and 10-99 before 100 when they are embedded in a string with no padding with 0 or spaces. My Haydn entries for String Quartets, Piano Sonatas and Symphonies are all correctly ordered and I don't pad them in any way (and I just checked to be sure).

I had not thought of that approach. I will probably wait to see if the developers can implement the request before I "fix" all of my tags.
