My Question or Issue

Ever since 30 November update I cant sort by artist in playlists anymore  and it bothers me quite a bit since I've always found it really nice to find certain songs that way. Hope this function'll get back.

If you click the button to sort by title three times then it will switch to sorting by artist.
Not very intuitive, but at least it's still possible!

Thanks SO much, greatly appreciated. Still think they should go back to having Artist as a stand-alone column but this helps.

You're very welcome. I guess I could get by with this method of sorting by Artist, but it still needs to be changed. There's simply no excuse for merging song Title and song Artist into the same column. It doesn't even look good.

Totally agree with you! Old layout was way better.

Thank you for this, I was PUSHED this update and did not ask for it. I wondered why they would remove such a feature...

What kind of chimp thought this was a good idea?
