I've looked through my libraries, and the alpha picker is missing in some them. The sorting hasn't been changed.

alpha picker is only available if no filter is applied and sort descending ascending by name

And also if the number of items being displayed is over a certain amount.

So you mean if there are enough titles to be paginated?

I think i have it at 40 right now. basically if the list is small enough that it would be just as fast to arrow down.

That can't be. Look at the last picture I posted. No filter and ascending.

Ok, I understand, but that's kind of arbitrary. I obviously didn't find that intuitive. If it were me, I would have the alpha picker as standard, rather than make rules for when it was used. Doesn't that seem more simple?

It does, but it's also nice to reclaim the space and make the posters bigger when it's not needed. but this type of feedback will probably force us into always having it there.

i'm sorry, i surely meant ascending, descending deactivates the alpha picker

 

@Luke any chance we get could get an inverted picker if we sort descending?

It's a good idea for the future, yes.

+1 for hiding when not needed

 

40 items are about 2 pages, picker won't be very helpful here imho

Well, I would prefer it to always be present.
