The STARTS WITH filter is a useful way of narrowing down the albums in your collection, to check that they are correctly organised and compliant with your rules:

The STARTS WITH filter

bliss has a lot of users from all over the world and, naturally, some of those users have albums in a script containing accented (or diacritical) characters.

In the STARTS WITH filter, accented characters are also included in the set of permitted initial characters. For example, for “i”, albums starting with the characters “I”, “i”, “Í”, “Ȉ” and “Ḯ” (and others) would all show.

There was a bug in previous versions where, if the first character was such an accented character, it would be recognised and included in the album count, but not shown in the album list. Worse, subsequent albums would also not show.

This is now fixed:
