Summary0020250: Audiobooks: Author field maps to composer
DescriptionThe Properties dialog correctly indicates fields for audiobooks:

Title (title, episode title)
Artist(s) (narrator; performer)
Album (book title; performance)
Album Artist(s) (author; performer)

BUT, the tracklist shows Author for the Composer field! (if anything, Author should replace the Album Artist field for Audiobooks)!
TagsNo tags attached.
Fixed in build2817

I don't get it.

1) In tracklist the 'Author' and 'Composer' fields are identical AFAIK
2) What exactly do you mean by "Author should replace the Album Artist field for Audiobooks"
Are you referring only in the Properties dialog? Shouldn't be rather Composer replaced by Author in Properties (for audiobooks)?
And what about tracklists with mixed content, I guess 'Album Artist' needs to be consistent column for mixed content (like Playlist).

So I guess the only change needed is to replace Composer(s) by Author (in Properties for Audiobooks?)

Sorry for the lack of clarity--I meant something completely different:
1) Yes--the fact that they're identical is the bug. i.e. the Properties dialog is correct and the tracklist headers are incorrect.
2) I meant that in the Tracklist:
- We can delete the Author field (since in the Properties dialog uses 'Album Artist' for authors)
- OR if we decide to retain it for Audiobooks views, the Author field should display the contents of the 'Album Artist' field (rather than the 'Composer' field).

ok, so removed the 'Author' column and left only 'Composer' there

=> Fixed in 2817
