    "Add to playlist" - please help me

    Hi

    I'm sure that, when using the "+" button on the Boom, the selected item (song, album etc.) would be added to current playlist.

    This was a great way of bulding up a nice playlist.

    However, now it seems to add to "now playing" .... so everytime you select something & press "+" it gets inserted immediately after the currently playing track.

    Before it would get added to the END of the playlist you were constructing.

    Am I being dim here or has the behaviour changed ?

    If so, can I restore it to the older type of function ?

    thanks

    a short press on the + would bring up the context menu where you can choose

    Add to end
    Play next
    Play
    Save to favorites

    Or, does it not work that way for you ?
    This should work on both track and album level.

    There is settings>advanced>betafeatures>shortcuts

    Where one is supposed to be able to fiddle a little with the button functions.

    I've got used to new controller by now.

    On my Boom - press + adds as next in playlist but press and hold + adds to end of playlist. That's been the behaviour for a while as far as I am aware.
    Who am I on LAST.FM?

    Thanks - that's solved it for me, but in a roundabout way !

    Holding the "+" button (which is what I was doing) actually added it as next.

    By pressing it without holding, selections are added to the end (as I wanted).

    Seems the opposite to what your describing...

    Glad you got it sorted, kind of...

    Is this with local files in your library or using something like Rhapsody or Napster? I get different behaviour with Napster for example (and understand this is as result of a combination of bugs).

    Also, do you have any third party plugins installed? Some of these may change the default behaviour for the add button.

    You're referring to Duet Controller aren't you ?
