When I'm in the artist tab, I can see artists that need to be separated into multiple artists. However, when I right click on ... well anything ... from that tab, I can't seem to find a way to split the artists. Edit Artist doesn't give splitting as an option. Am I missing something?
Also, when I do split an artist, it would be really helpful if HMM would give me a chance to define the sort order for the newly created artists.
We are not exactly sure which view you are refering to, but splitting of multiple artists are done via the any of Tag editors.
There's no option do it directly from the Artists view since it relates to tag-data.
From the Tag editor you can do it by selecting the artist cell you would like to split and then select Extract > Multiple artists (Shift+Ctrl+A)
I guess it would make sense to add a way to get to the Extract > Multiple Artists from the Edit Artist Information dialog box. It's a bit counterintuitive to have to get into a tag editor (which relates to a track) when the information to be changed is how the database thinks about the artist.
