Existing Composer disambiguation not appearing in drop down results for Work search

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f00ba5d53d8>


Editing (adding Relationship) to track 9.

Writer in drop down search results shows no disambiguation.

But Composer has existing disambig.

Why no see?

/Houston?


I do see disambiguation comments in both track 9 existing relationship and inline search.
Are you in the relationship editor?

@mmirG: Do you mean the writers list when searching for works?

Using “Edit relationships” for above Release.
Track 9.
Click “Add related work”.
Then click on magnifyibg glass in search box.
Drp down search results show
“Writers: Cyrillicname”

No disambig showing for Cyrillicname.

While I’m not 100% sure a disambiguation is needed there (it seems unlikely there are many cases where several artists of the same name wrote a work with the same name), showing the primary alias that fits the language might make sense, since we already do that elsewhere. I’m not sure why I never thought about it (I read Cyrillic but not Japanese, so I’ve had some issues with that myself!) Will look into it - MBS-10351 :slight_smile:

I don’t think it is needed to show artist alias as we don’t show work alias.
Wouldn’t it become too crowded in that in-line search?
If you can deal with works in certain scripts, you are able to at least recognise the writers as well.

We do :slight_smile:
