Song Tab, possible improvements or am I missing something?
I now have a fairly big database of songs, like 4500. However, many of these are the same songs, but in a different key, instrumental staff charts, chord changes only,  different genres like pop and jazz of the same song, pdfs, jpgs, mp3s. Each song has only one file associated with it because of the different metadata. The end result is that there is often many entries of the same song in the song list, even 7 or 8. I realize that mp3s at least, can often share the same metadata as a chart.

If I understand correctly how MS works, this is the way it is supposed to be because if there are more than one file referenced in one song entry, they all share the same metadata. Is this correct?

If this is true, what I would like to see on the songs tab, is all songs with the same title grouped under the one common title, with maybe a little + sign ahead of the title to indicate there are more than one entry that can expand when you tick on it.

Here is another issue for me. I like the fact that on the songs tab, there is a little icon to indicate that an audio file is present. However, there is no  way of knowing if there is chart included. Is it just an audio file with no chart or an audio file with a chart present? If there is no audio, is it just a blank page or is there a chart present in the entry. I think there could be more of these little icons to indicate what type of files are present or not in the song database entry.

I know that MS is quite powerful and accept that maybe I could be using it differently to achieve my goals. Am I doing this completely wrong and/or have misunderstood the way MS operates?

BTW, I just love this program and the way Mike supports it. There is no way I could do without it now.
