Sorting in Matching songs

I notice that in my playlists, the "index" column remains unchanged regardless of how I sort the list (ie: always in numerical order). However, if I try to sort a matching songs list by any other column, the numbering in the index column gets jumbled. Is there a reason for this? It would help to select a portion of a match list by some criteria if the index column behaved the same as in other lists.

    Just to make sure I understand this correctly:

    With regular playlists, you mean any playlist shown in the main beaTunes table, right?

    With Matching song list, do you mean a Matchlist shown in the main beaTunes table or songs shown in the matching songs panel, below the main beaTunes table?

    That is exactly what I mean. By regular playlists I mean any of my existing playlists in the main beaTunes panel. And by matching song list I mean the ones shown in the matching songs panel.

    Ok—the meaning of the index column is different in the playlist panel and in the matching songs panel.

    • Playlist panel: The index is just the number of the song in the current order. This is similar to iTunes.
    • Matching songs: The index indicates how well the given song matches the selected song in the main playlist panel. It's a rank.
