    Default Add "Does not start with "The *"" to Smart Playlist

    1. When searching through alphabetized listings, that dreaded T list contains a boatload of titles starting with The. Adding two filters:

    Starts with The *
    Does not start with The *

    would allow smart playlists that separate them out. You would need to use a wildcard (*) or hardcode a trailing space instead of using a wildcard so that Titles starting with words like Theater would properly filter.

    2. The new feature Group by First Letter is fine except I have cinemas and TV series in the Library. Five seasons of Castle or Big Bang Theory really clog the whole system. Would be nice to disallow (or restrict to) a filepath containing TV for instance. Then I could put all TV series in that folder and they wouldn't clog the rolodex (or create new TV rolodex).

    Thanks for a superb product,
    Tom

    This idea has been given before (it is a good one). But we would prefer a way to specify which words to ignore when sorting. The would work for English titles, but would fail in most other languages.

    Thanks for the suggestions, Tom. We have a few ideas regarding both your suggestions and we will implement them in a future version of Mezzmo. JohnM is also right - we need to take into account all languages (not just English "The", "A", etc.) when considering what starting words to skip over when sorting & organizing your media files.

    If I filter with a 'Starts With The <space>', all I get are 'The <rest of title>' titles. It seems a 'Does Not Start With The <space>' would work the same as 'Does Not Contain The <space>'. Seems very straight forward to me, but then I'm not a programmer.

    Anyway, love your product.
