  1. I don't think .pla format playlists are supported by Poweramp, just m3u, m3u8, pls & wpl. I'm not sure about converting them, but M3U and M3U8 are both very simple text-list file formats. Andre
  2. I think you may find the third-party app "New Playlist Manager" helpful, might be worth a look. Andre
  3. I guess I use PA differently to you. When I create a playlist it's for a specific reason and once created and populated with songs, I rarely edit it much. For regular listening, I use the normal playback categories. Andre
  4. Inserting an album into a playlist is performed using whatever specific List Options setting is in place when you carry out the action. So if you have the songs level set to be sorted by Track#, that's the way the songs will get added to a playlist too. Yes, a separate new option in the Re-Sort Playlist menu is what I was suggesting too. Andre
  5. To be honest, while I can see the point of adding multiple songs to one playlist, I can't really see why you would want to add one song to multiple playlists at the same time. Andre
  6. @maxmp has mentioned in the past that the Album Art area in lists is also used for multi-selection of items (via long press), so removing the artwork would cause other interface issues. Perhaps sometime in the future, it might be possible for the main app to highlight the whole line of each selected entry when choosing multiple items, rather than using a tickbox at all? My file explorer app does it that way, and it works very well without using up any space from the filename or obscuring any content. Andre
  7. That's nearly a year old, might be worth updating to 845 and seeing if your issue has been resolved in the meantime? Andre
  8. That would make a lot of sense to me. Plus Composer, for those who use it. Some tagging formats (such as Vorbis) allow multiple instances of the same tag too of course, which makes the task easier still. Andre
  9. There is a setting to exclude short files (notification audio, game sounds, etc). Make sure it is disabled in Settings > Library > Ignore Short Tracks. Andre
  10. Moved to Bug Reports forum for v3. Andre
  11. I assume this would be due to 'one star' meaning the same as 'thumbs down', i.e. a disliked song, so it would not appear in a top rated list. You could use another list type (e.g. "All Songs") and set the List Options to sort by Rating, then you'd get 5-stars at the top, then 4-stars, all the way down to 0 (unrated). Andre
  12. Poweramp has never generated PLA files during export, only M3U(8) ones. Poweramp's M3U8 files are very simple, they just consist of a series of individual lines containing the path and filename for each song in the list. That's what you get if you Export any internally created playlists to files. When you talk about "pasting PLA files," do you mean copying such a file over to a new location so Poweramp can see it, or using a text editor to cut'n'paste the actual lines of text from one file to another? Andre
  13. Many search engines require at least three letters, allowing searches for one or two character returns too many results. I assume search provider that PA uses has a similar restriction. Andre
  14. Huh? This feature was added recently, see the last few posts above yours. Andre
  15. This option had been asked for repeatedly by many users for years, and finally made it into the app recently. Andre
