Hi,

It would be nice if it were possible to detect fields that have double spaces between words. Right now 'Various Artists' & 'Various Artists' are treated as different.

Additionally having a application wide toggle to just read the words in fields and ignore spaces between the words would be nice.. Just for a quick fix.

Tim,

    Hey Tim,

    your example Various Artists should be caught by the Misspelled album artist name or the Misspelled artist name inspection (see screenshot).

    Have you tried it?

    Thanks,

    Alternatively, if you find one of those cases and correct it in the table view, beaTunes will offer to correct it for all cases...

    Yer, I've seen this.

    I was suggesting this because you actually have to be looking for double spaces. If the software is looking for an lists it when running an 'inspection'.

    Users many not even know they have the problem, currently the inspection report states 'misspelt'. Not really telling the user about a double space, it could also lead to users miss-understanding the error as you cannot really see a double space.

    You check for double spaces first, more efficient to 'apply to all' in the first inspection report line, opposed to have many 'misspelt' inspection entries, requiring the user to apple the change many times.

    Ok — you're right, that's different.
