I would like to have the ability to add Group Dividers in the Collection List.

For example, for a simple example.

On the Owned Tab Collection List I could have two Group Dividers.

One for Movies and the other group dividers for TV Series.

I could move profile up or down and place then under whatever Group Divider I want to.

That way I could have my entire Owned Collection sorted under group dividers any way that I want.

Or I could do the same for Genres Dividers of lets say actors or directors or whatever.

This way I wouldn't have to create a separate Custom Tab to place my Owned TV Series and move all those to that Tab.

Perhaps someone could create a mockup of what this could look like.

One way is to use TAGs.
And just filter on the tag (or tags) you want to see.
I Think this is simpler and more flexible.

I think I see what you're trying to do but to what end?  Perhaps an example of what you would find helpful after starting Profiler would clarify.

Yeah, but I would have to do that every time.

Having dividers would be a permanent way to organize ones collection.

The problem with TAGs is you need to use them as soon as possible. If your collection is large, it is too much work going through thousands, if not tens of thousands, of profiles to add TAGs.

Which is my problem.
I've tried to go through my collection and after awhile I just gave up trying to add Tags on to the profiles.

Hi Cobby,
I'm not sure I fully understand what you what but I have some suggestions that might be helpful.  As I have my discs in binders and to easily locate one I add the Location to my personal info.  I have Location selected in the Collection List window and can easily sort on that column.  In this Image the beginning of my TV... Binders is displayed.
Also, I checked on your reference to Genre and saw that it too could be selected.  This really proved helpful to me as I've been removing Television from genres, where inappropriate, and I was able to identify far more titles than I was able to using filters.
