Playlists

I am new to this forum, but have been using FOOBAR for many years. Brilliant program, and I would like to thank all those involved with the development.

I have a simple request re playlists. I have looked through the help, but cannot find an answer I can understand.
Is it possible to automatically save the playlist in the folder it relates to? I create a playlist by selecting the tracks playing onscreen that I want, and FILE SAVE PLAYLIST. It always saves the FPL file in another folder, and I have to move it the the folder where the tracks belong. I have thousands of albums, and always want Discs and the PLAYLIST in their own folder.

Sorry if I am missing the obvious.

I think you could try using the media library instead of juggling thousands of playlists.

Sorry I cannot see utilities as a heading.
The save playlist command does not use the current folder. I have tried media library, but as I often reinstall the operating system I am not sure how this would be affected. I always have data on one partition, and programs in another. If I have any problems I just wipe the system partition using Paragon Disk Manager boot disk, format and reinstall Windows 10. Microsoft hold the machine profile, so activation is no problem.

In the main menu, it's File > Save Playlist (Ctrl S)
Foobar will still use its own numbered playlists from the windows profile though. There is no connection between a playlist tab and the file from which it was loaded.
If you regularly back up the windows profile folder, then it's easy to restore foobar settings including the library, after a wipe.

I think the component http://www.foobar2000.org/components/view/foo_jesus might be useful for you, but I don't use it myself.
