How do i make an album by various artists appear as a single album? I have added the "Album Artist" column and entered the "%album artist%" in the display field. But when i try to arrange albums that have various artists through this column, they appear next to one another but spread out, and i want them to be grouped. Under the artist field i have the correct name of each artist, and under Album artist i have "Various artists". This works on itunes, but not here on foobar.
Any help?

in the Default user interface in Preferences, Custom Grouping Schemes, add new, fill the pattern as %album% and name whatever.

I use Columns UI so I haven't tested this, but it should work.
