Summary0016594: <Playlist> mask is hidden (users don't realize that it even exists)
DescriptionWhen synchronizing file to a device/storage then mask like this can be useful:
\Playlists\<Playlist>\<Auto Number> - $Left(<Artist>,20) - <Title>

and requested feature:

But as this mask is not presented anywhere in the UI then users can hardly realize that it exists.

Possible solutions:
a) add the mask '<Playlist>\<Auto Number> - <Artist> - <Title>' to the dropdown list in Sync target > File locations
b) add <Playlist> mask to the mask configuration tool [>>]
TagsNo tags attached.

As described at 0016592, I tested the <Playlist> mask for syncing and it doesn't seem to work at all. Am I misunderstanding how this is supposed to work?

Tested as follows:
synced 2 Playlists to \My Documents\Temp\Testburn\Music\<Playlist>\<Auto Number>$if(<Artist>, $First(<Artist>), <Album Artist>) - <Title>
--> <Playlist> mask is ignored

EDIT: Also, how does this mask work if a multiple playlists contain the same track? i.e. is the track synced twice to the two different PlaylistName folders?

It works fine for me, and yes, track is synced twice when it is included within two playlists (like in MM4).

Did you select the playlists on the sync-list?
The playlists needs to be selected on the sync list.
Try to test with clean device profile and if it still fails for you then generate debug log.

So it seems that the bug is related to Sync settings not being saved correctly. It's almost too weird to describe, but it seems that MM presents 2 different versions of the same profile:
1) One with 5 config entries in the Sync profile tab and auto-conversion rules disabled
2) One with 3 config entries in the Sync profile tab and auto-conversion rules enabled

I wouldn't have believed this if it wasn't captured on video:

I see, this happens when you previously selected "GPM" profile (which does not have the 'File Locations' tab) and then selected the "Local folder" profile.
It is refresh issue related to re-using of the same DeviceConfig component.
