How can I get Beatunes to ignore duplicates on different albums?

    You can't via a configuration, but you can select the solution "Ignore this".

    It would be nice to have a setting in Duplicates that said ignore if the Album is different. Which would only list true duplicates. I am on Bea tunes 5.1, On windows 10, I am using a library that is not iTunes. Where would I find the “ignore this” solution

    Whenever you select a duplicate issue, you get different options for resolving it. One of them is to ignore it in the future.

    Hi I use that one but it seems to often forget that I told it to ignore it. When I purchase albums I like to have the complete Album, this means that I often get the same song by the same artist on multiple albums. As long as the album name is not the same I don’t consider them duplicates. When Bea re-synched my library the other day I ended up with over 400 Duplicates of which only about 13 were what I would call real duplicates (same song on same album). Hence my desire for a setting that says “Only count as a duplicate if the album matches.”

    I understand. Currently there unfortunately is no such setting, nor is there really any user accessible configuration for individual inspections. This makes it non-trivial.

    +1

    User configurable inspection rules would be a great asset imho (Beatlets?) I hope you'll find time to add this in some future version.
