iTunes 11 ...

... am I being a bit dim or has some of the functionality
of iTunes been taken away by this upgrade

When viewing albums I'd like to be able to sort by something
other than artist but this doesn't seem to be possible

You can sort by more than the artist if you choose songs from the options at the top of the library also turn on the column browser to have greater control over filtering tracks, the menu is hidden by default so switch the menu on then enable the column browser and it shows up.

If you are on windows there is a little icon in the top left hand corner that if you right click gives the option to show the menu. From there choose View > Column Browser > Show Column Browser I think.



Mac version should be similar.

All the options under Column browser are greyed out and cannot be selected
When you are on the ALbums tab and they are sorted by artist only by the
look of it.

Select Songs first, it may be because you can;t use the column browser in the Albums view.

EDIT: Yup, column browser options don't work in Album view and are greyed out here too.

Sean, thanks for your help mate. I knew you could sort
when on songs but I wanted to sort when on albums.
Seems you can't

No probs, I think I may have found a fix.

Try hitting CTRL + J in the album view, you'll get a little box pop up giving you view sorting options, you even get to choose two criteria.

You can filter from there.
