Summary0015773: Auto-Playlists with multiple criteria limits are not supported or imported from MM4
DescriptionAuto Playlists with Multiple Limits fail to import in MM5 as adding multiple limits to Auto-Playlist is not available in MM5

When Playlists have two enable Limits they fail to import and all but one limit is lost.
Steps To ReproduceCreate Auto-Playlist in MM4 with these settings Using ALL Match and Entire Library:
Status -> Is accessible
Type -> Music
Rating >= 5
Track Length <= 660 Seconds (To eliminate long Tracks)
Sort -> Random -> Z..A
Limit -> 100 Tracks (At that time my Car Stereo could read up to 100 tracks)
Limit -> 80 Min (If I want to limit that to an Audio CD)
TagsNo tags attached.
Fixed in build

The solution proposed at 0015777 could also resolve this problem.

ok, this seems to be a small usability regression against MM4.
The pros are the clearer, cleaner and compact UI.

I guess that using multiple limitations is rather rare case, probably just the Audio CD example (100 tracks / 80 minutes) ?
Assigned to Rusty to decide whether the UI should be re-designed because of this, but sounds rather as a low priority item to me.

I agree that this is probably not that common, so,

1) In the short term: Assuming this isn't hard/risky to implement, MM5 should import such playlists from MM4, but with only a single limit (preferentially use limits of minutes, MB, files)
2) In the long term we'll see if this is really a problem. If it is, we can update the UI with a '+' to add a second limit (but not a second option to 'Select by' e.g.
[ ] Limit to _50_ _files__v . . Selected by: _random_ [+]
. . Limit to _100_ _MB_ . . [-]
