Custom Node filter on first character of SortName not possible?
I'm trying to break up my artists, following the example of zag (A-Z first letter nodes,
It works, but the filter is based on the artist-name.
The following rule:
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
<node order="1" type="filter">
<rule field="artist" operator="startswith">
selects for instance the composer Alban Berg.

I would like to change the rule to select the first character of the SortName (a "B" for Alban Berg).

It seems that I cannot use the field SortName in Smart Playlists or filter nodes??
Correct.  Not currently defined as a filter field.  I don't see any record of it coming up as an issue when sort artists were added, so don't know if it was intentional, an oversight, or just not considered.
