Solved MyMusicPlaylistEditor

As of Krypton, the context menu from the songs pane (list id=100) is not available. The upshot is that there is no way to reorder tracks using a remote.

Ticket opened in trac.

Edit: Would someone kindly move this to the dev forum?

Confirmed there is no context menu in the Music Playlist Editor window on both Estuary and Confluence so would seem to be a core code issue, mostly likely due to the Context Menu refactor.

Another one for you list perhaps @DaveBlake

This is what it looks like in Jarvis 16.1

Anything music library related is best here - this subforum covers both user support and music library fixes and new feature design.

I'll add it to my list, but as a 2 year old regression that no one reported before it isn't my highest priority (and I doubt anyone else will take interest, although they are welcome to). I don't use playlists at all personally either, which makes it all harder.

Thanks guys. Just happy to have the issue acknowledged. Here's the ticket, btw.

I assume you’ve got a remote with limited buttons? if so what remote exactly, maybe we can come up with a keymap solution so you don’t require the context menu in this case. Another solution would be to use ine of the Android/iOS apps available that can remote control Kodi.

Very gracious of you to offer but the truth is I don't use this functionality either. I stumbled upon this in test and felt reporting it was the responsible thing to do. Wink

Bump. Issue opened on GitHub. Hopefully this won't slip thru the cracks of another release.

Just wondering if there was ever a solution to this issue? Im using 18.9 on a windows 10 machine and can't edit playlists. I tried several skins as well before I went backwards and downloaded each kodi version until I found it working, in Jarvis. Please hello Smile

Use the keyboard to edit the playlist. See reorganise items in sect 4.2 here... https://kodi.wiki/view/Basic_playlists

Yeap, and it has taken ages for me to figure out what broke this functionality and made the playlist editor useless unless you have a keyboard attached and the intuition to know what keys to hit.

The playtlist editor was totally broken when viewtype parsing in CGUIMediaWindow was removed in a code clean-up https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/pull/11114 by someone that had no clue that the playlist editor was even a media window and thought the code was redundant. No one else noticed at the time because no one on the team edited playlists this way.

Then a fix was make skin side (adding an explicit view id definition), to get around the total breakage https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/pull/12879 however clearly this was not enough, but again no one noticed. 

Oh poor unloved playlist editor.
I will see if I can fit it so it actually works for v19.

And low it was so....

Music playlist editor has received some attention, the bugs have been fixed  and is hopefully now even a little better than before. Thanks to https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/pull/18838 and https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/pull/18852

Fixes will be in v19 beta 2 (and nightly builds from tonight)
