My Question or Issue

 

Why can't I sort Spotify searches anymore?

 

My issue is when I search for songs (e.g Blue moon) I am unable to sort that search result by Artist, Title, whatever!! I was able to do this up until about a week ago.

When I started searching for an answer to my issue, I came across a query for exactkly the sane problem Back in 2014

 https://community.spotify.com/t5/Desktop-Mac/When-will-sort-search-results-by-column-heading-be-rest...

 

So it has happened and been fixed before.

 

Is anbody able to help me with this issue?

 

Thanks Heaps

Exactly. It's pure nonsense.

Sort feature in track results is not working in build 1.0.92.390.g2ce5ec7d

Please bring this basic feature back guys ...

I am having the same problem and I hate it! I also hate that when I click on the album search results I get album covers that I cannot sort either.

 

I was searching for "Smells Like Teen Spirit". There are 90 pages of results for this song by many, many, many different artists. Not fun without a sort option when you you are not sure who sings the cover you like.

 

I don't understand why people update software to make it less functional.

 

I am using 1.0.92.390.g2ce5ec7d

I was there the last time... Now I find myself once more doing what I did the last time they fuddled (I'm a Windows user): Create a new, empty, playlist. Search as usual. Select at least one song. Press Ctrl-A and drag it all into your new, empty playlist. Go there. Sort! You've got almost the same functionality, only the Thumbs-up column isn't there.

Great suggestion. One thing is I had to "page down" to the bottom of the list before using Ctrl + A to capture all the songs on the list. Thanks! :)

Same issue here

 

The thing with workarounds is... why should I use a workaround when I didn't have to with the perfectly fine previous version?

And to be honest, I often like to sort a huge page of results by the thumbs-up column :\ 

 

So that workaround is not enough for me :(

I have exactly the same problem.

 

It all seemed to stem from another problem caused by an update whereby if you sorted a master list and clicked on a song to play, it played a song in a different position on the list.

 

Rather than fix that particular problem or reverse what they did to cause it, they've decided to take the sort away completely so that the problem is "dealt with" by default.

Also driving me crazy. Premium User as well and it seems like the sort function, sorting results from a search, stopped working in the last week or two...

Same problem here, sorting stopped working in searches.

Premium user since forever.. But if not fixed, will find a better program to pay for.
