I'm looking for a way to avoid moving duplicates into a playlist. If I have an established playlist, and I come across another song I'd like to add, I just drop it in there. If the song already exists in the playlist, the playlist happily accepts it with no warning. Is there some way to turn on a warning? (This is a duplicate of a song you already have in your playlist. Add it anyway? YES NO).
I do realize that I can scan the playlist for duplicates after the fact, but it would be quite a bit handier to have iTunes alert me when I attempt to add a song that's already there. I wonder what percentage of the time a user would WANT the duplicate song in a playlist? I can see the value of it sometimes, certainly. And in that instance, you'd just say YES to the warning box (or select to never have it ask). Maybe this is a problem that's unique to me, but as I slowly build my playlist over many days, weeks and months - this feature would be very handy. My memory ain't what it used to be.
Well, there you go. Sure enough, 7.5 (the latest version today) does exactly what I'm looking for. What were the odds of that? Thank you very much for taking the time to reply... and having the answer! Solved.
