Local Library - Show in Playlist

Hi Everyone -

I apologize if this is a completely ignorant question, but I have recently begun using WinAmp after years of other products that shall not be named. One feature I can't locate, but seems so logical, is the ability to see what playlist or playlists a song appears in, from the local library. Is this possible?

Again, I apologize if this is not the proper place for this type of question.

Thank you very much,

Brad

i'm assuming you'd have to look at each individual playlist to know that.

Right I understand that, I just am looking for a way to see if a song appears in multiple playlists.

Maybe I'm crazy.

and i understood your question, and said the only solution i know of.

it is a bit of a niche, advanced type thing... most people don't use playlists at all, and of those that do, i doubt many are concerned with if a given song is in multiple playlists or not.

none of that is to say it wouldn't be a cool feature, and i can think of lots of other playlist improvements i'd like to see in winamp, but given the state of winamp these days, i wouldn't expect to see it anytime soon, ...unless i'm completely wrong and there already is a way to do what you want.

you did find "Playlists" in the nav tree, yes? i wish the ML, or "Local Library" would allow you to create a column named after those playlists, and be "checkmarkable" to show or add/remove a song from that playlist. if you enabled a column for every playlist you had, that would do what it sounds like to me you want.
