This is an issue with both the Roon 1.8 clients for Windows and iOS.
It is no longer possible to navigate to a classical composition from a recording of that composition, EXCEPT if there are more than 2 recordings of the composition in my library. In that case I can click on the disc symbol on the album page and it will navigate to the composition.
In 1.7 this was always possible.
See an example in this screenshot. Only Horn Concerto No. 2 has the link to the composition.
This was brought up by quite a few people in the forums and I wrote a bug report here.
I guess current thinking at Roon is, that this is “by design” and not “by bug”. The reasoning goes along the lines of “easier in portrait mode”. Maybe they rethink - dont know. I think it looks terrible. Movements are indented everywhere. Booklets of recordings, concert programs, you name it… You just no longer easily see where a composition starts and ends.
The composition matching issue you experience I think has been brought up before as well. Just cant find the link right now. I put it in when I find it.
Could you please also tell me whether the no-indentation of composition parts is “by design”, as @bbrip suggested, or if it is unintentional?
And what about the navigation to composition? Is it intentional that this is only available on the individual tracks of a composition? Look at the screenshot in the first post of this thread. In Roon 1.7, I could click on a symbol next to “Horn Concerto No. 1”. Now I have to click on the three-dot-menu of “Allegro” and choose “Go to composition”. Is this by design? Sorry about the nitpicking, but it is important for me to know.
All the best to the Roon team! I’m sure you are all very busy.
I agree the “logic” behind this is a mystery. You get a symbol when you have 2, 5 or 15 recordings of any given composition in the library, but not if you have just one? I would just expect the same library symbol with a “1”. Anything else doesnt make any sense.
