    Default Issue cut/paste Smart Playlists

    I have a number of smart playlists. Occasionally I want to cut/paste (i.e. clone) one of them and then edit a couple parameters (i.e. Smart Playlist name and an attribute or two). Previously I've been able to cut/paste them and then make the edits and the new playlist would update with the appropriate results. Now when I do it the playlist is empty and no changing of attributes will populate a Smart playlist with any results which has been cut/paste. If I create a brand new one with the same parameters it works fine. I haven't had the needed to do this for a few months so I don't know which version it stopped working.

    Update: We've tried to reproduce this here and cannot get copy/paste to fail. The new smart playlist works every time . Please take a screenshot of the Smart Playlist Properties dialog for the original smart playlist and then a screenshot for the new copied/pasted smart playlist as well. That may help us replicate the issue.

    Paul I've done more testing and now can't reproduce it. I believe what happened was my database had an issue with the album/artist field after one of the upgrades because the existing set of Smart Playlists I had been failing on were a fixed set of Smart Playlists based upon this field and I was seeing scenarios when I went into the properties tab that the album/artist field wasn't showing up any long yet the smart playlist still operated correctly. I've since gone through and updated all of the Smart playlists to use the Actor field instead of album/artist. Since then the cut/paste now seems to work fine. I'll keep an eye on it in the future.
