New genre page
As currrently we can see a files genre in a few places but could a page similar to the artist page be created so you can see all the genres currently set. On clicking that genre that shows all the albums/files with that Genre. Again similar to the Artist page. Would be useful for tidying a collection up where similiar genres exist. E.g. Alt-rock or alt rock or alternative rock.
Yep, moving all the albums in a genre to another would also be easier then.

A genre page like the artist page would be a real advantage for me. The tree mapping could be cool as well, but less essential. What would be super useful however would be a drop down under each album within a particular genre that lets the user select a different genre so albums can be reassigned easily.
I envisage a workflow like this:
-Open Genre page.
-Select the wrongly assigned album by Metallica
-Use drop down to assign to "Metal"
The drop down could be all genres found in the collection, or only genres in the allowed list if that rule is active.

There was a bug where this could sometimes happen with music files that have mandated genre lists, e.g. MP3s, although I thought it was ok now.
Can you send a separate email and include a debug archive which includes the attempts to change in the log (i.e. recreate the problem, then create a new debug archive)?

Hi Dan, Tree maps a bit heavy for my reading , perhaps not enough time to understand. But if it you think it would work / help then yes by all means. Now perhaps related to this or not I am finding an issue that Bliss will find a Genre that is not sentance case as my genre rule. e.g it finds "Hard Rock" as not sentance case and makes the suggestion to set to "Hard rock".(lower case r) On cliclking the fix button it says Success but it remains as "Hard Rock". (capital R) The same is is "R&B" will not set to "R&b" but if I change to "R & b" with spaces then this works. But not "Hard Rock" even editing the album genre to Hard rock it says success but remain as "Hard Rock" Any thoughst please?
I agree - and I wonder if a treemap visualisation would be helpful for it too - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Treemapping
