How do i make an album by various artists appear as a single album? I have added the "Album Artist" column and entered the "%album artist%" in the display field. But when i try to arrange albums that have various artists through this column, they appear next to one another but spread out, and i want them to be grouped. Under the artist field i have the correct name of each artist, and under Album artist i have "Various artists". This works on itunes, but not here on foobar.
Any help?

Bryter, here is how grouping works:
For every single track a string is generated, according to the grouping scheme. Tracks are grouped together if and only if these strings are equal. So the very first task, when you want to get some desired gruoping, is to find out what combination of tags you should use in the grouping scheme such that the grouping is done as you want it. You can do this completely without a computer, assuming your files are properly tagged. After you have found such a tag combination you can formulate the actual grouping scheme.
