Hi this is Gary with MacMost Now, on today's episode let me show you how to fix sorting problems in iTunes. So it's important to remember there are different ways to view your songs in iTunes, you could view as list which is right here and then you could sort by say song name, artist, or album. When you sort by album you'll see all of the songs from one album together even if the names of the artists are different. So for instance, on the soundtrack here you can see each song has a different artist but the album names are the same so it groups them together. However, if I were to switch to the album list here then you can sort in many different ways, most usual is Album by Artist and then you could see that each of the songs here is a separate album because its by a different group so it'll appear all over my music collection over here in many different albums. So how do I get them all to be together in a single album? So one way would be to select each song individually, get info on it with Command I and then set it to be 'Part of a compilation' and if you do that for all of the songs, it will know to group them together as a single album. But an easier way to do it would be to select all the songs, lets do that by going to the list view again sorting by album so that I could easily see what songs are there and I'm going to select them all and do Command I info on them and it'll ask me to confirm that I want to edit info for all of the different songs and it will show me info that isn't common so the album name isn't common here, the artists are different so it's blank. Now the album artist is what we're looking for, the album artist field is especially created to be able to group together different songs by different artists under one album and have them show up correctly when sorted. So I can select the album name and let me create the album artist and make it the same as the album name just for simplicity and click okay. Now when I go back to view as Album List I can see it as grouped together, all the songs from that album even though they have different artists. Another thing you should know is that if you select a song, do Command I, you can look at the info for it but you could also look at sorting and under sorting you'll see some of those fields repeated so you see the Name, Artist, Album Artist all that on the left. On the right you see alternatives for each of these for sorting only. So for instance I could change the artists name and have something different over here, but it would not affect the actual information in the song which is over here. It would only use this data over here for sorting purposes and this data over here for everything else. So another thing you should know about is the Track Number, so you can see over here I have this album selected and in the Track Number column I have all listed here track one through thirteen of thirteen. You can edit these for any individual track if you wanted to change their order, just get info on them under info. There's the track number field and in keep in mind you can always change what you see here in the list by simply going to view and the view options and it gives you the option to include or exclude all sorts of different columns from the listing here. So for instant I can add Date Added if I like and it will appear here on the right. You can see that right most column now has listed dates. So there's some ways to fix sorting problems on iTunes, hope you found it useful, until next time this is Gary with MacMost Now.
