Description of Issue

Hello @support

Selecting a Work as a Favorite does not allow the Work to show up in a Focus search or Bookmark. The only things that show up are the individual Parts, and then only if they are marked as a Favorite. I expect the entire Work to appear in the track list if I have selected that Work as a Favorite.

Screenshots follow, using Brahms Symphony No. 3 as an example:

Tagged correctly as shown in Mp3Tag

Track list for the album as shown in Roon

Results of a focused search for favorite classical tracks

The screenshots were taken when I told Roon to use the file metadata for multi-part compositions, but the behavior is the same if I use Roon’s metadata (which also correctly identifies the Work and Parts). As a matter of fact, it was this bug showing up when I was using Roon’s metadata that encouraged me to test it with the file metadata after the tracks were properly tagged with Work and Part.

Why only this part & not the whole work?

Because you’ll see the favourite for the whole work under compositions.


Thank you!

So not a bug, just user error (looking in the wrong place).

I hate it when I do that.
