Use this panel to control how contributors like Author and Artist are displayed, sorted and searched.
Contributor Name Display
Readerware maintains the name of each contributor in two formats, one for display
purposes and one for sorting. You can edit either one in the contributor dialog.
By separating the display and sorting of names you have a lot of options to control
how names are displayed and sorted.
You can control how Readerware uses these names by choosing one of the following options.
Assume the display name is Agatha Christie
and the sort name is Christie, Agatha.
- Use display name only - The name is displayed as Agatha Christie and is sorted under A.
- Use sort name only - The name is displayed as Christie, Agatha and is sorted under C.
- Use display and sort names - The name is displayed as Agatha Christie and is sorted under C.
If you select a contributor from a list when searching, Readerware looks for an exact match.
You can change this so that Readerware does a wildcard search.
For example, if you search
for albums by selecting Carole King from the list, Readerware returns a list of albums where she is the only artist.
You can also do a wildcard search, enter *Carole King* and Readerware will return albums by Carole King,
Carole King & James Taylor etc.
If the Force a wildcard search option is checked Readerware will add the wildcards automatically whenever you select
an artist from the list.
