Maybe I'm being dumb, but when browsing by Artist I can't seem to find an option to list all tracks by that artist. If you don't know which album a track belongs to it becomes a pain to find.

I would expect the current "Play All" option when you select an Artist to read "List All". Selecting this option would display all tracks for that artist, or hitting Play on this option would play all tracks as per the current implementation.

Am I missing something? Has this come up before but my forum search powers have left me?

Cheers.

There is a sorty of way to do this.

Select the artist using the music librabry.

Select play all songs and you will see a list of all the tracks by that artist in album order on the right hand (status side).

I hope that is helpful.

Apologies I should have made myself clearer; I want to see the list of tracks without clearing out my current playlist.

Also, RalphO, I think you're referring to the web UI. I'm trying to get the hang of these newfangled Controllers. ;-)

Yes I agree, a "(list) all tracks" like in the web-interface makes more sense. If you make a feature request I'll vote for it....

Dang! I thought I was pionneering! ;-) Thanks for pointing it out. I've marked the bug as a duplicate.
