Album Art sequence

Hello Roon!
Since this is my first post I want to congratulate everyone at Roon with this great product. It does a lot I dreamed of in the past years.
For some time I maintained my own web-interface on top of LMS but it became too much work and not enough music-pleasure :wink: And Roon is the first product I found which could replace them.

One thing that bugs me is how Roon changes the order in which it displays the album art.
For example, in the Artwork-folder of an album I have following items:
A1 - Front.jpg
A2 - Inlay Out.jpg
A3 - Inlay In.jpg
A4 - Disc.jpg
A5 - Back In.jpg
A6 - Back Out.jpg

And Roon displays them as follows:
A1 - Front.jpg
A5 - Back In.jpg
A4 - Disc.jpg
A2 - Inlay Out.jpg
A3 - Inlay In.jpg
A6 - Back Out.jpg

The only workaround I found was to do this:
01 - Front.jpg
02.jpg
03.jpg
04.jpg
05.jpg
06.jpg

So I think Roon looks for specific words in the filenames and creates it’s own sequence.

It would be nice to be able to disable this behaviour.

Hi @darym3,

Yes, we do have some logic in place that determines the order automatically. At this time there is no way to manually change this.

Since this appears to be “working as designed” I would recommend also posting your suggestion in the 'feature request" section of the site.

Our product team and developers keep a close eye on that category, so that’s definitely the best place to propose a change like this and get feedback from the Community.

We appreciate the feedback!

To aid the OP I’ve moved it over.

Thanks for the reply and moving my post to the feature requests.

Yeah I’ve asked for this feature a few years ago also - as well as a few others relating to album art:

A bump for this request. The ability to disable whatever intelligence is mixing up the artwork would be appreciated.
