    Lightbulb Customise field names in lists

    Hi Andrei,

    I'm sure this must have been asked before, but I need to be able to customise the label of certain fields in list views. Where, for example, I use an OCD field (as opposed to a custom field) for certain data that it wasn't intended for, I want to be able to change the coumn label to reflect MY usage. Would this be a problem to enable?

    And we seem WAY overdue for some action on the 'new version' front - anything coming up soon?!

    Hi Malc,

    Renaming built-in fields is tricky. Windows UI that OrangeCD uses is not flexible enough for easy replacement like this. (I had to go a long way to implement Custom pages...)

    Can you share what built-in fields are you re-using? It may provide insights re: what changes do I need to make to accommodate your requirements, which probably aren't unique.

    Andrei,

    For me:

    BPM = My top 100
    Barcode = Videocassette No. (I don't bother with scanning)
    Distributor = Minidisc No.
    Booklet pages = DVD No.
    Quantity = Musical influence rating (how important a track/album is to my music appreciation)
    Purchase Location = Place where the music really hit me (Influence location)
    Interview (spare tickbox for various purposes)
    Private (as above)
    Soundtrack (as above)

    I know everyone is different, and we're all probably music 'geeks'! Some will always want certain fields - others won't!

    Cheers, Malc
