Hi, I was wondering if its possible to add the function to drag and drop playlists and sort them yourself, rather than alphabetical.
atm I have to use
01-Playlist
02-Playlist
etc
to make them sort how I want them.

Another great thing would be folders where i can group playlists.

And another one would be to be able to export the playlist AND the files. So i can easily put them on my usb stick or phone.

regards
thorsten

    Yeah. That's missing. I'll make a note.

    Is that not already covered with the existing folder feature?

    And another one would be to be able to export the playlist AND the files. So i can easily put them on my usb stick or phone.

    Understood. It's on the Todo list.

    Indeed, I've never seen the folder feature before :)
    being able to create folders with right-click, and drag and drop
    playlists into and out of folder would be cool,though.

    It would also be nice to be able to import more than one playlist at a time!

    and thanks for the last update, the performance is so much better on my
    system now!

    beatunes is getting better and better!

    Agreed.

    That's actually easy to implement. Check out the latest dev snapshot: https://www.beatunes.com/download/beaTunes-5-1-1-SNAPSHOT-x64.exe (if you are using 64 bit) Please make sure you stop beaTunes before installation.

    That is great to hear! How many songs are in your library?

    Pleasure. Seemed like an arbitrary limitation that was easy to lift.

    May I ask which part of the application feels faster/more responsive now?

    The Bug that beatunes freezes when rating a flac file is gone. This was
    a real pain.

    Now when I use the search function for my whole library I feel the
    difference in performance the most.

    Speaking of the search, It would be useful for me to be able to search
    for comments and custom tags!

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Comments should already be searchable (just not individually). Custom tags are on the todo list.
