It would be very helpful if we were able to select a playlist from a [list] view instead of a [tab] view.

Finding a playlist in a scrollable list is much easier than finding it in a tabular view that isn't easy to navigate.

It will become easier to drag songs across different playlists.

What do you think? (compare 1 with 2 in the image below)

Also, I don't think the tab view was designed to display a long list of tabs. For example consider the following tabular view:

[Tab 1][Tab 2][Tab 3][Tab 4][Playlist 1][Playlist 2][Playlist 3][Playlist 4][Playlist 5][Playlist 6][Playlist 7][Playlist 7][Playlist 7]

Compare with this list view:

[Tab 1]
[Tab 2]
[Tab 3]
[Tab 4]
[Playlist 1]
[Playlist 2]
[Playlist 3]
[Playlist 4]
[Playlist 5]
[Playlist 6]
[Playlist 7]
[Playlist 8]
[Playlist 9]

The list view is just way easier way to navigate. Especially when alphabetic sorting is added.

You can use the Playlist Manager (in the Playlist menu) and dock it on the left. Like in the attached screenshot.

Wow I did not notice that you can right click the Playlist Manager.

I guess I am suggesting then to enable dragging/dropping songs into playlists displayed in the Playlist Manager.
