Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

Playlist paste: bug or feature?

When copying from one playlist to another in Foobar2000, paste always inserts above the selected item. There is no way to paste to the end of a list because of this.
Normally when I'm pasting into a playing playlist, I've just found a few more songs that I want to add to the end. Not really before the last song in the list.

In the default playlist, you can make some empty space to the right of the last column, click there to clear the selection, then right-click to paste. Pressing Ctrl-V does not work.

I don't know if it is bug or feature but the trick is:

1. To paste above - select song where you want to paste new tracks and right click at the top of rectangle (just slightly above title text) and after paste it will be pasted above.

2. To paste below- select song where you want to paste new tracks and right click at the bottom of rectangle (just slightly below title text) and after paste it will be pasted below.

Using those suggestions: Right-click on song paste inserts below, ctrl-v inserts above.
If it's a feature, I wish it was the other way around. I have ctrl-v set to one of my mouse buttons. There so much more work involved in making a macro that would open the menu and pick the paste option... and that would only ever work on foobar. Ctrl-v works on most everything.

Ctrl-shift-v pastes to the end of the current playlist.

Thanks for the information. I will use that well. (I still wish it was swapped.)
