how do i get the "natural" sort order to match my playlists in itunes? 1.1 was supposed to fix this, but I cant get it to work...

Maybe I need to elaborate...

In FS, when I imported my iTunes playlistd, they appeared in the order that they are sorted in the playlist (i.e. not necessarily alphabetical in any column). SSL still forces an alphabetical sort by column.

I thought "allow natural playlist sorting" listed under 1.1 improvements was referring to this feature.

I wish this would work, as I use very long playlists sorted not alphabetically, but by my own (patented) low to high intensity sorting method.

I dont pack my record bag alphabetically, and wish I wasn't forced to do so in SSL.

Thanks for the help inadvance!

That is a good question Seagreen.

Here is a little trick I use. You can use the comments column view to number your tracks like 1,2,3,4 will that work for you?

Hello Seagreen. 1.1 did not address this issue. "allow natural playlist sorting" referred to numerical sorting within (generally) text based fields. However we are working on a fix for the problem of iTunes playlists loosing their order.
