I created a Matchlist successfully which has a default name of "Playlist" When I right click on the title it includes a provision to "Rename" it but when I replace the name "Playlist" with the name "Very Content" it reverts back to "Playlist"

Any help would be appreciated

    Is this an iTunes-based library? If so, do you have automatic synchronization on windows activation on or off (in general prefs)?

    Hello Hendrik

    Yes I do have it turned on. And it is a iTunes-based library. If I turn automatic synchronization off will I be able to rename the playlist?

    What may happen is that you rename the list in beaTunes and then somehow trigger synchronization before iTunes was able to write the new name to disk. So in effect you are re-reading the old name. Turning off automatic sync may avoid this.

    Once it's turned off, you will want to sync manually (via File -> Synchronize) every now and then.

    Thanks again Hendrik

    I have restarted in beaTunes and tried to rename it but it reverts back to the name “Playlist”. I then went to iTunes and was able to rename it in iTunes. .

    I am running beaTunes 5.1.4

    Thanks again for your help

    Hey Cliff,

    can you please try this again in beaTunes and then upload your logs via Help -> Upload Logs? Perhaps there is something in there...

    Thanks,

    When you edit the playlist name, wow exactly do you end editing the name? Do you hit ENTER? Or do you do something else?

    Dah on me. I forgot to hit enter but rather put the mouse on another field and clicked. Feeling sort of low IQ here

    Thanks again

    Cliff
