Correct Sorting of the key field
Continuing the discussion from Sort by Key starts at 8A - why?:
I was really hoping to see 1 request being implemented with the latest update, however it didn’t happen although, in my opinion it is a simple request.
In 06-2017 I posted the request then in 01-2018 a similar request was posted, @Gee_DenonDJ did confirmed it was on the “request list”
As a refresher: the keyfield can be sorted, and can contain 4 diff key notation, many DJ’s are using the Camelot or the normal key flat/sharp notation. When mixing it is usefull if you can sort the field, and yes this can be done on the player and in Engine Prime the downside is that when you do sort it it is not sorting it correctly, it start with 8A to 12B then to 1B to 7A. Would be logical if it does start with 1A to 12B.
Only when displaying the “open key” then the sorting goes OK.
Another plus would be if the Camelot notation could be done with a leading “0” with the single digit camelot key’s 01A instead of 1A.
@paul_denondj can you confirm this is still on the request list, understand you can’t say it will be added to the next update nor you can say when this next update will happen.
