It would be nice if Album List had a drop down list of "libraries", selected combinations of monitored music folders.

Usefulness: 1) Portable drives which aren't always connected to the computer can have their music removed from the Album List without having to remove a folder path (and it's cache) from Monitored Folders. 2) Custom grouping of music without editing tags.

(admittedly, 2 is a stretch, but 1 would be very useful for me at least)

Perhaps this can be done with several $if statements in a custom sorting command (one for each group of folders), but it gets a bit messy. In any case, take the feature request if you like it, or tell me I'm lazy if you don't.

I suppose I am pretty lazy. The custom sorting commands aren't all too difficult, just tedious to update.

The first displays files on the "F:\" drive, the second files on the "C:\" drive. One can potentially use $stricmp to match whole directories, but it's beyond my needs.

Portable Sorted
CODE
$ifequal($strchr(%path%,F),1,custom_sorting_command,)


Local Sorted
CODE
$ifequal($strchr(%path%,C),1,custom_sorting_command,)
