Copy and Paste

Post by HowardBrazee »

My M1 iMac arrived, and I migrated my old system to it. I'm still keeping my old iMac until kJams goes Beta.

I ran kJams and deleted all of the songs in a couple of playlists (there were 2 songs in each). These are playlists that I use to copy and paste into spreadsheets to print up.

I then selected all of the songs in my library and dragged them to one and then the other playlist.
By selecting a # to each playlist I see that Library has songs 1-1367 The playlists I dragged the songs to have songs 34-1400. Those numbers do not match songs in either of the other playlists. As in song #34 is different in each of the 3 playlists.

The # count restarts at 1 in each list. Also, erasing a middle number renumbers all songs.
Hence, # is not locked to a song in lists.

Re: Copy and Paste, # in playlists

Song #48, #33, #21 in Library
1.png
Dragged to list Number Test and gets new numbers in that list.
2.png
Erasing #2, renumbers the songs (10CC jumps from #3 to #2)
3.png
Adding one more song starts count at #3

Hence, song# is not reliable ID in the playlists.
(Personally i don't use it that way but good to know)

in the Library playlist, you're showing "Song ID" sort column. in all the rest, you're showing the "User Sort Order" ("#") column. they are unrelated.
