Alternative song titles
#3
I too have the issue with alternative names.  Celtic songs are notorious for being known by several different names depending on whether you're a fiddler, piper, harper, etc...plus there's frequently a Gaelic name too.   I don't want or need the alternatives to show up as separate songs in the library but I need to be able to search for them.  So I've used the fields "Custom" and "Custom 2" for my "AKA's".  I then add the Custom fields tags to the "Song Title Format" setting.  This allows me to find the alternative names via "Search All Fields". They will show up there under the original tune I set up.  

This works fine for me but is still a bit short of what I would like.  It would be nice to have a few fields actually labelled "AKA" (or something similar) under the song title.  That way I would still have a "Custom" and "Custom 2" field to use for other things.
