    LMS Documenter Poll

    I get the feeling that people that are using the Documenter put the resultant pdf on their mobile devices for reference. Please tell me what you use it for - it will help me decide what I should focus on in the future development of the program.

    My guess ... going shopping in old fashioned record store and wanting to see if album is already in possession (digitally at least) before buying.
    So open up the pdf and check by artist to see album list.

    Each type of catalog has its uses. I like having options. The albums-only list goes on my phone, but I will consult the full catalog when I'm in my easy chair at home.
    LMS 8 nightly; 3 Squeezelite players connected by powerline ethernet; 5 wireless players connected via Airplay Bridge; 1 SqueezeAmp player
    no high-end or esoteric audio gear
    1 Squeezebox Radio (upgraded UE Smart Radio) now mostly retired

    +1 - The number of times I've either not bought an album believing I'd already got it only to find I haven't! or finished up with multiple copies of the same disk. So great having an up to date album list on the phone will be really useful.

    Not so much bothered about having track lists the only place this would be useful is at home and there I have access to LMS so will do searches / browsing on that.

    You already have list titles without tracks by checking Album List - I will look at sort options - thanks for the feedback
