Summary0016261: Playlists: New Playlists should be first in tree till refresh / focus issue with prompt for playlist name at top of List
DescriptionDuring testing #12355 it functions correctly, but there are some tweaks we should consider:

I) New Playlist as it is not focused it is put in play on tree making it difficult to locate when having large number of Playlists and user needs to scroll to be able to D&D tracks to it (there is no benefit of #12355 implementation). SOLUTION: Put Newly created playlist Top Of root playlist till view is refreshed (eg. tree collapsed/expanded) as that way user can easily find them and use D&D as explained in #12355

II) new playlist name is always "New Playlist" and user needs to loose focus in order to Rename it, as it is not focused and when (1.) gets fixed it should Auto Init Rename of newly created playlist so that user do not end up with multiple "New Playlist" entries in tree.

NOTE this do not affect Auto Playlist as they are Focused on creation, maybe we can also consider Auto Init of edit playlist name on creation so that user needs to confirm it (with Enter Key)
Steps To ReproduceI) Steps:
   1. Expand Playlist tree node
   2. Right click -> New Playlist
   3. Right click -> New Playlist
   4. Right click -> New Playlist
   5. Right click -> New Playlist
   6. User ends with multiple playlists names "New Playlist"
TagsNo tags attached.
Fixed in build2236

ok, I have made the "New Playlist" being the first in the list (until it is renamed)
=> Fixed in 2221

But as for the issue described by you, most of them I cannot replicate,
in my case when I right-click Playlists node : New Playlist
=> playlist panel is opened and _New Playlist_ is in the title edit mode to change the playlist name immediately, see the screenshot.

If I don't touch the playlist (not changing the name or add a new tracks) then the playlist is automatically deleted.

So tried to use your steps:
   1. Expand Playlist tree node
   2. Right click -> New Playlist
   3. Right click -> New Playlist
   4. Right click -> New Playlist
   5. Right click -> New Playlist
=> I still see just single "New Playlist" node as all the others have been auto-deleted meanwhile.

So from my perspective there is no change required.

I) Playlist is not always created first in case of creating Sub Playlist and there is lots of Playlist like in case of Imported Playlists Will upload video showing it. NOTE I can't replicate Multiple creations in 2221

II) For me it do not open in EDIT mode It is just created

From what I see, this may be another case of 0016217.

It can be replicated consistently as follows:

 - Playlist 1
 - Playlist 2

1 Right click 'Playlists', select 'New Playlist'
--> 'New Playlist' node appears (lets call this NP1) right below 'Playlists' node
2 Right click on the 'Playlist 1' node, select 'New Playlist'
--> NP1 disappears and a new 'New Playlist' node appears as a child of 'Playlist 1'

Furthermore, once this bug occurs, it seems that all subsequently created New Playlists don't appear with an editable name in the Playlist Editor!

Raising priority to urgent.

EDIT: Another possibility is that the playlists aren't being saved because the user isn't making any edits to them. But if that's the case, then they should never have appeared in the tree in the first place.

Fixed in 2222

Re: Rusty's EDIT: Yes, if the playlist isn't saved then it is auto-removed per item 2a in #13530
But now with the new playlist being always as first we can revert #13530 / 2a (reverted in 2222)

For me it works much better, user friendly and logical now.

@Rusty Please close after test

Issue II) is recurring in build 2233. i.e. even though a newly-created Playlist appears to have 'New Playlist' (the playlist name) in focus, typing has no effect and the user must manually click on the playlist name to edit it.

I can confirm it, this seems a general bug in cascade menus where whole main window loses focus after using cascade menus !
e.g. right-click a track > Send to > Pin it
=> focus is not returned back to the main window, can be verified by pressing Alt to focus main menu => nothing happens

The issues does not appear for standard menus, but only for cascade menus.
Assigned to Petr as it is window management issue.

It actually seems to be working almost all of the time, and just happened to fail on one occasion. So I'm re-resolving and will open it if I can replicate/log the issue.
