My Question or Issue
I have noticed a little issue regarding playlists. Until the last version, if you were playing a playlist and you clicked on the cover art of the album, you would come back to that playlist and this song would be highlighted with a blue square. However, since the last update, if you have previously sorted the playlist in any order, the highlighted song is the one located in the position that the currently played song occupies in the natural order.
Here is an example. I've created a small playlist with this 10 songs:
Now, we select one of them and we play it: Heavy In Your Arms, by Florence + The Machine, which is the 7th song in natural order:
While playing, we sort the playlist by song title in ascendent order. With this new order, the selected song becomes the 4th one:
Finally, we click on the cover art. Then, we can observe that the highlighted song is not the currently played (which still appears in green color), but Many Of Horror by Biffy Clyro (in this order, the 7th one, the same position as Heavy In Your Arms in natural order):
In small playlists there is not much problem, but I have a 6,200+ playlist in which I like having the most recent songs on top, since they are the ones I play most often and now it is a mess to come back and find the currently played song. Please, may you take a look to this issue?
Thank you in advance, greetings,
