How I can exclude from my music library all tracks with zero rating? Is there way to do this in the same way such in the standard collection view? Any filter based on criteria "Rating <> 0 stars". I want that undesirable songs were not displayed in all nodes :)

Did you try "<Rating> <> 0"?

Hmmm... Then I should write this in SQL field of each node. How to achieve my goal in the minimum number of steps? Is it possible? Sorry if I don't quite understand explain. English isn't my native language :roll:

Yes, you should write that in the Filter text box of each wanted node if you are using the freely available version of the add-on. The donation-only version has an ability to assign some Filter to any Group of nodes just once, which will automatically affect all contained sub-nodes. Here is the relevant part of the What is new section:
* Added: possibility to specify Filter qualifier to the group MN nodes, i.e. the same filter could be applied to several MN nodes belonging to the same group (the group filters are AND-ed with global filters for particular MN node)

By the way, English is not my native language either. ;)

Of course, there is one more possibility to achieve what you want, even with the freely available version. You should create one new Collection with the criterion: Rating <> 0 stars, then you could move all your wanted Magic nodes to that Collection, but then again, you will have to do that for each node, so you will have the same number of required steps as with the Filter solution.

I found out that there was an update for the enhanced version of this addon (v5.1 - 2017-03-07). Did you put my sorting wish in this version already?
In the changelog you wrote "Added: several new ways of sorting masks in the Manage Masks dialog box from the table's context menu".

Sorry, but no, I didn't. That addition in the changelog is something unrelated to your sorting wish.

Unfortunately, I tried some ideas that I had about it, but none of them was successful. It is very unlikely that your wish could be realized without MM developers applying it into their database using a new SQL collation.

Ok. Thanks for the information about that... :)

If I buy the enhanced version do I have to remove the free version? Or am I able to install this version to my installed version?

The install of the enhanced version is like with any other previous versions, i.e. it replaces the last installed version during its installation. However, since the new version has many masks added/renamed/improved, it is recommended that you uninstall the old version before installing the new one and when you asked if you want to remove all settings you should choose Yes. Of course, before doing that you should first make a backup of your own created masks to be able to import them back after installation of the new version.

Here's a thought,

Is there a way for the add-on to show how long it's been since an artist
has released another album, or relative, that it's been at least so many years since the last release that you have in your library?

You could insert a number of years in the code (modifiable) and periodically insert the current year somewhere in the code as well.

For example,
I want to know how long since the last release (in general and/or in my library) for any given Album Artist, therefore you could put
in something like "4" years minimum and current date "2017" and the results would show any Album Artist that fits that criteria.

Thanks!
Works great. :)

Is there a way to limit it even further?
Such as, a minimum of 5 years but not more than 5 years, 10 years, etc.?
