My Question or Issue

1) how to find exactly a named song, like "pools", result should not contain, "poolside", "black pools", "Hot Grooves" (=totally unrelated), etc .

1b) I tried to use the also the keywords like, "song:" and "title:" like "genre:", no help

2) pressing a column header TITLE, does not sort, should it be? None of the column headers do not do that either (some older versions did that, why removed?)

Hey @usspit 

 

About searching for specifically titled tracks, it's kind of tricky, but entirely possible. I have managed to make it work using the AND and NOT tags, so to remove Poolside from results, you enter the following:

 

pools NOT poolside

 

And of it's a multiple-word phrase, put dashes between words, such as:

 

empire NOT empire-of-the-sun

 

 

So.. when it comes to searching for tracks with a specific title, eg Amon, it currently gives a metric ton of Among Us, which is undesirable. To go around that, this should work:

 

track:amon NOT among-us

 

..And then you carry on excluding as many words as needed until you get mostly tracks named Amon. :')

 

Sorting the results however is currently not possible.

 

Check out this thread for more extended search tips.

 

Let me know how you get on!
