Summary0015344: Auto-tag: Dynamic Sorting makes it difficult to edit tracks
DescriptionFrom uu) at #14224:
If the user changes a value of the 'Album' field --> the entry is moved and it's difficult for the user to find it to continue editing the track (especially if a large number of tracks are being auto-tagged).

When the user edits Album Name, the sort order changes even though the Artist/Album Artist hasn't changed (and the original sort seems to be by Artist). e.g. Change the Album for 'Tequila' by 'The Champs' --> no change in Artist/Album Artist, but the Track moves towards the bottom of the list! Could it be that initially tracks are sorted by Artist and Prefixes are ignored, and then on changes prefixes aren't ignored?

 not only does its position in the list change, but the sort order of the entire list changes! This is a problem since if a user has reviewed tracks 1-10, and then tracks b,c,d are inserted among tracks 1-10, the user won't realize that s/he hasn't reviewed those tracks!
 See video at .

I would suggest that tracks shouldn't be dynamically sorted in this dialog (they should be resorted _only_ if the user presses F5 or clicks a sort arrow).
TagsNo tags attached.

Tested 2154. The original problem seems to be resolved (i.e. when the user makes edits to tracks, they are now not resorted/regrouped on the fly). In addition, a message appears:
'Press F5 once you are finished with editing to regroup tracks to albums.'

The message should:
a) Appear as a toast rather than as a persistent message
b) Appear using standard formatting/font (i.e. a nicely formatted toast)
c) Be simpler: 'Press F5 to re-sort/re-group tracks'
d) Only appear when relevant i.e. if the edit actually results in a change that affects sorting/grouping, rather than on every edit.

Test note: this is a separate issue, but if this approach works well, we may want to do something similar for Playlist re-ordering with ALT-F5.

This is working fine in 2156. However, the implementation seems to be different from that which is implemented for contextual search (powerscroll). Is it possible to rationalize the two toast implementations so that it looks/works the same in all cases?

Note: if you prefer to defer this, we can open a new bug to take care of this in the future.
