Especially for large amounts of detected duplicates from big collections (often music) it would be helpful if you could search the displayed results (by keyword, artist, location, album) to see which duplicates should be grouped together in a 'sub-selection'.
In addition to that it should be possible to (temporarily) work with this sub-selection to decide/select which items to delete, mark them, delete them - without affecting the complete amount of detected duplicates.

Please inform me if such functionality already exists: I am a newbie with Similarity and might have overlooked certain features.
No need to ask for what already exists...

Thanks,
Wim

Hi,

simply sorting by the corresponding columns (e.g. artist) isn't enough?
I personally usually sort by filename since my MP3 tags aren't always right.

Bye,

You can always sort by any field, it over-complication to do sub-selection.
Maybe just adding in future versions Ctrl-F to search in the selected fields will be enough.
