Hi Nick
Two suggestions about iTunes playlists:
#1 It seems that there're two ways to add some characters (tabs, spaces, commas, unbreakable spaces…) between fields when defining a custom format definition:
- To drag and drop one of these chars between two fields. This is easy and works perfectly. ;^)
- The second way is simply to make a double-click and, so, insert a character… at the end of the formatting definition.
Why not adding this new character at the cursor place when using a double-click?

#2 There's only one "factory" format beginning by a number: #(tab)Title(tab)(Time).
By adding a tabulation before this number ((tab)#(tab)Title…), you would make easier to align this column like this:
(note how the first column is right-aligned)

I know that I may create my own custom format (and to tell the truth this is what I did):
but this would be nice to get this, so useful, kind of format from the "factory" ones.

Hi Jean-Jacques,

1. I agree, the way you suggest would work as pasting in a regular text editor works.

2. I'll pass your idea to the developers.

Thanks for your suggestions!
