Smart List - Filter out Smart Copies?
« on: April 17, 2018, 06:26:24 AM »
I'm using a Smart List to generate a list of songs, but I'd like to exclude all songs that are Smart Copies (i.e. include only the 'parent' songs).
My Smart Copies happen to all have the text 'Practice' in the Title, and also alternate Colors, but using Filters to exclude songs with any of those attributes seems to have no effect (still get all the Smart Copies included).

Could this be a Smart List limitation: If it pulls in a song, it always also pulls in any derived Smart Copy without applying filters?

It looks like the website can't filter smart copies separately from their parent copies, but the mobile apps can. Does that match what you're seeing?

I'm only using the website, and haven't tried it on the mobile apps (I use this Smart List more for at-computer work than when playing). 

But if you see the same thing on the website then I know it's not something I'm doing wrong.  Not a big deal, just some extra clutter in the list results.

Okay. I remember having trouble with that when adding smart copy functionality to the website, but I'll put it on my wish list to take another crack at that.
