Select all A, B, Authors?

I did search, but its so generic, that I couldn't find anything.

All I want to do is when browsing the Library, using the Tags on the left hand side, is to be able to Select ALL the "A's from the Authors column. (All the authors beginning with the letter A)

I know I could select each individually with +shift for example, but that would take forever.

I imagine there is a search term that I could use, Authors=<"A er yes I don't know any regex yet. Anyone want to help me out here?

I could then save the searches for each letter of the alphebet....which would be useful. Even better would be if just clicking on the "A" from the author tags, would populate the search box with that term.

This has probably been sorted before, so sorry, can you point me to the solution please

Thanks kiwidude

Is it worth suggesting that this be auto applied when selecting the A's or B's or C's in the authors tag lists? Or is that some really major program change to implement?

In any case thanks. now I can easily select blocks of Authors, which is great when working on you library.

Not sure if it is worth suggesting, but I did it anyway.

The change works on any category partitioned by first letter (not categories partitioned into fixed-length groups). It is in source and will appear in the next release.
