Recreate a playlist such that its visible columns mirror the Music library

Obligatory warning: This script has been designated as an obsoleted "Retro Script". There is no guarantee that it will function as described with modern versions of iTunes and OS X. If used in its current form it may not work at all without modification and, at worst, it may corrupt or destroy data.

OS X 10.10 and later, iTunes 12.2 and later only. This script re-creates a single selected playlist so its Songs View column settings (visible columns) are the same as the main Music library (taking advantage of the fact that new playlists acquire the Music library's visible sort columns).

Works with user-created regular playlists and Smart playlists only.

Assign it a keyboard shortcut for ease of use.

Designated as a Retro Script because modern versions of iTunes no longer create new playlists inheriting the view of the Music library but by using Playlist View by default; thus any playlist the script re-creates will be in Playlist View.

Latest version:

  • August 27, 2015
  • Works with OS X 10.10 (Yosemite) and later and iTunes 12.2 and later only
