Description Janet 2009-10-25 18:41:17 UTC
Version:           2.2.0 (using 4.3.2 (KDE 4.3.2), Debian packages)
Compiler:          cc
OS:                Linux (i686) release 2.6.31-5.slh.1-sidux-686

I cannot find a way to save part of the playlist as new playlist as it was possible with amarok1. After selecting the tracks I have chosen for a separate playlist the first thing I tried was righclicking - but no "crop playlist" or "save selected files as playlist". The second was to drag the selected files onto the middle pane - but no option for creating a playlist. Then I tried to drag the files to the left pane with the saved playlists, nothing. Then I rightclicked into the left pane in hope for creating a new blank playlist where I drag the tracks to - nothing. Then I found the save button below the playlist, but it only offers to save the whole playlist. And finally I went to the main menu's Playlist entry - but again I can only export the playlist as a whole.

Am I that blind or isn't it implemented yet?

Not implemented yet.
Comment 2 Bart Cerneels 2010-12-30 16:37:23 UTC
Implemented now: only the selected tracks in the current playlist are saved.
Comment 3 Beat Wolf 2011-02-22 20:03:17 UTC
there is a patch review pending for this issue:
Comment 4 Janet 2011-11-25 16:48:50 UTC
Is this really fixed in Amarok 2.4? In 2.4.3 I can save and export the whole playlist but there doesn't seem to be any obvious way to export/save just the selected songs in the playlist to a new playlist.
Comment 5 Myriam Schweingruber 2011-11-27 21:50:07 UTC
This is indeed not working in current git. Bart?
Comment 6 Myriam Schweingruber 2011-11-27 21:50:34 UTC
Setting status correctly.
Comment 7 Bart Cerneels 2011-11-29 12:11:05 UTC
It seems I was mistaken in comment #2. It's not implemented yet.

Will target it for 2.6 so a confirmation dialog (hence a translated string) can be added.

Playlist browser: drag & drop and plugged playlists cleanups

This change fixes a couple of bugs:
 * it is now possible to drop tracks & playlists to playlist providers
   in Saved Playlists
 * When a new empty playlist provider appears or disappears when Amarok is
   running, the view is correctly updated.

  * "Crop playlist" functionality implemented using drag & drop.

  * Drag & drop of tracks and playlists to Saved Playlists works in all cases.

  * iPod playlists now appear even when plugged in while Amarok is running.
