    As you can see by looking at the attached screen shot, the "R" in Rolling Stones corresponding to the song "You Can't Always Get What You Want" starts one space to the right of all the others. I am using OS 9.1 and iTunes version 2.0.4 (okay, stop laughing now), but this was never a problem until recently ... any ideas as to how to make that first letter of the artist flush to the left like the rest? As I mentioned, this is minor and no sleep is lost over it. Thanks for any suggestions that may be offered.

    Hmm... if you Get Info/Info the song in question,is there a space at the start of the title in the name field that needs to be removed? That's all I can think to suggest.

    That's the quirky thing ... no space at the start of the title in the Get Info area.

    That sounds like the only thing it could be, it's no tlike you can move the songs around horizontally. Definitely check the title of the song.

    Sorry I read wrong, check the space at the front of the artist name, not the title.

    Ah – I see that I read it wrong too. Sorry!

    Yes, on second thoughts check the artist name. :eek:

    No problem. There was something that I neglected to mention concerning the letter placement. A blank space was left before the letter "R" because otherwise the song title stops at "You Can't Al." By placing a blank space it enables the full title to be displayed, but it does not allow the item to be flush to the left with others. I am sorry for having omitted that.

    Hmmm, now that's strange. What happens if you remove it from your library and import it again? It may not make any difference, but it's just a thought.

    Out of 1,903 total songs in the music library, this has affected 14 items. I have deleted the songs in question and reimported them only to be left with the same problem. This does seem to be quite the oddball situation.

    Wow, that's really weird. Have you tried deleting all of the song info and manually entering it?

    I just repeated that twice ... status quo still rules. :(

    Wow, I don't even know where to go next. It may be just a bug with that version of iTunes. Do you notice any common traits with the songs that have that problem?

    Every song in iTunes has been imported using the MP3 encoder, half at 160 kbps, balance at 192 kbps. There is no obvious pattern that seems to make those unruly 14 march to a different drummer. I do thank you for the good points you raised in responding to my post.

    You're very welcome, I wish I could have helped you solve it.
