I updated iTunes to 11.0.4 and all my playlists are missing.  I followed the advice on the iTunes website and it didn't work.  I am unable to set up NEW playlists also.

 

HELP?  Anyone else have this problem with 11.0.4?  Thanks for any help.

    I updated iTunes to 11.0.4 and all my playlists are missing.

    Are only playlists missing or also the songs and movies?

    Or is simply the sidebar with the paylists not showing? To reveal it, use the command "View > Show Sidebar ⌥⌘S" from the main menu bar.

    I followed the advice on the iTunes website and it didn't work.

    What advice did you follow? What exactly have you tried so far? Is this, what you tried: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1451  ?

     

     

    I am unable to set up NEW playlists also.

     

    Is the command "File > New > Playlist" grayed out or ineffective? What exactly happens when you try?

     

    Regards

    It looks like your iTunes download and install is incomplete.

     

    Try to reinstall iTunes and restore the previous library file, see:

        No content shows up in iTunes after updating

    You are welcome. I am glad you found your lists!

     

      However, I found that if I SCROLL down to the word 'playlist' and hover around the name, a 'show' comes up.  Click on the 'show' and everything magically appears.

    That is unfortunately a new feature and not a bug, and has many taken by surprise. Sorry, I did not think of that hidden button.

    These hidden text fields to toggle and "Hide" and "Show" controls are now in many applications, Mail, iPhoto, Aperture. So next time something goes missing from a Sidebar, search the panel close to the title text for a hidden toggle button
