There's a shortcut in the tag editor to apply sort order fields (CTRL+SHIFT+O), but it doesn't work anymore.
I cannot reproduce this, tested with having two tracks starting with "The".
After pressing Ctrl+Shift+O, Title sort order was properly filled.
Do yo uhave any example data which does not work?
OK, so I tried again with build 14960, and still no luck...
I just realized, that for some reason there's a "wrong" shortcut shown in the menu: Ctr+Shift+O (the "L" in Ctrl is missing...) - I don't know, if this might be the reason.
I have tried to force the issue to happen with build 14960, but it works as earlier described for me.
The missing "l" in the shortcut link should not matter, it is just a visual thing.
Do you have any tracks selected when invoking the extraction?
OK, I found it - my AMD graphics driver installed a global shortcut, so Helium couldn't...
Great to hear that it got resolved.
