[ToS #6]Am I able to use different Tags for each foobar Playlist?

Dear All ...

I'm 100% new to Foobar ... just tried to install this software 2 days ago.
Previosly, I used iTunes. But iTunes' file is bigger day by day. That's why I supposed to used Foobar instead iTunes for my MP3 player.

But with foobar ... i faced a lot of problem.
For example:
Foobar playlist view: I used Properties to change the Tags by adding Composer ... all playlist within Foobar are change that way too

Am I able to use different Tags for each foobar Playlist? Just like my iTunes,
My Classical's Playlist displayed only Composer, Song's Title, Album, and Track Number
While my Collection's playlist displayed only Artist, Year, Album, Track Number, & Song's Title
If possible ... would you mind for doing a favor by guiding me how to do it

Thank you.

That is possible with Columns UI
If you manage to set up Columns UI, I'll tell you how to do that

If you use the default columns it should do what you ask.

If the only difference is the use of %composer% instead of %artist% in a column, then you can use the field called  %album artist%. Basically, it will try to show the %composer% tag first if it exists and will fall back to %artist% if it doesn't.
It's more thoroughly documented here:
