How do you set iTunes so that the songs in a Playlist will automatically be played one-after-another? I thought I had solved this problem when I found the two little buttons at either end of the progress bar at the top of the iTunes window when a song is being played, but apparently not. I can set the button so that the song keeps repeating, but when I use the other setting (two arows pointing in opposite directions) there is no effect. When a song finishes, that's it. To play another song, I have to click on it. I know that I used to be able to play nonstop all the songs in a playlist, but I can't now. What's wrong?

    Do you have checkmarks beside the songs?

     

    If you double click a song, do the following songs get added to Up Next?  (cmd + opt + U)

    I didn't, but when I put them in, my problem was solved. Thanks a million. Now I don't have to get up every few minutes to have music. That might be good for my legs but not my disposition.

    I don't understand this, but since my iTunes has been fixed, I don't even care. Good thing you didn't ask your questions in the other order.

    Glad the check marks helped!

     

    The Up Next thing is new to iTunes 11.  It shows what songs are coming... up next.    It looks like 3 lines with bullets beside them, in the right side of the display at the top of itunes, where it shows the song playing.  Command + Option + U is the shortcut for showing it (you can also see the option to show it under the View menu, or clicking its icon).  In all honesty, it's something a lot of people will probably never use, though.

    Thanks for that. More importantly, it reminded me that I hadn't given you the offficial credit to which you are due.

    Oh, one more thing. You've shown that there is something good, well, goodish, about iTunes 11. I had thought it was all bad, and I have a lot of company.
