Auto-Organize shortcut quirks

When I have to manually force auto-organize due to the series name or ep number being unreadable to MBS, I've found two little quirks.

 

  • Open the Episode Organization dialog, then press the down arrow to display the drop-down menu with show names.
  • Quirk one: Press a letter on the keyboard to go to that letter, say "m". List scrolls to shows that start with "m" but since the cursor is on the blank space at the top as soon as you move it down a notch into the list, the list immediately snaps back to the top. The workaround is to move the cursor down first but it would be nice if that wasn't needed.
  • Quirk two: Press the letter "t" to get to a show that starts with "t", and you get the first show that starts with "The", which is not very useful. On the plus side, shows starting with "The" are correctly sorted in the drop-down list according to the second word. It would be great if initial "The" was ignored when selecting a letter shortcut.

I have noticed that too.  What I do is type more of the name of the series, and the selection bar moves to the correct selection.  Then press Tab on your keyboard and it will select that name and take you back to the dialog where you can select the series and episode numbers.

The jump to letter as you type is part of HTML and controlled natively by the browser. If you keep typing it should jump past The.
