PM123's Playlists

PM123 playlist files always have the extension .LST. They use a special format. PM123 also understands .MPL files used by WarpAMP and .M3U playlists used over the Internet.

Window features

The icons show the type and the status of playlist item.
If the clicked item is a song: navigate to the song if this is possible within the currently loaded playlist.
If the item is a playlist: open the nested playlist in the playlist editor.
Direct manipulation
You can edit the alias name, the start and stop offsets and the source URL by direct manipulation. Note that changing the the name does not change any file name. It only changes the display string of the item in this playlist. This is e.g. used to label bookmarks.
Drag and Drop
You can use Drag and Drop to rearrange the items in a playlist, move or copy items between different playlist or playlist manager windows or drop file or URL objects from other applications. In the latter case only shadows are allowed since playlists only contain references to the original objects. You cannot drop PM123 objects on other applications.
Context menu
With the right mouse button you can invoke the context menu of the entire list or the context menu of the selected item(s).
Keyboard accelerators
You may use the accelerator keys to call functions from the context menu quickly.

If the playlist is modified '(*)' will show up in the window title. However, you won't see if a nested playlist is modified.

The Default Playlist

PM123 has a special default playlist file named "PM123.LST" in your PM123 folder. This file is used to hold a sequence of objects if you load more than one file to the player. You should not use the default playlist for your favorite songs since it is overwritten each time it is needed for other purposes.
