How to use the Editor
You want to make the perfect playlist, and you're on the editor, but it can be a little intimidating at first. The following guide covers all the sections of the editor so you can use it like a pro.
The Main Menu is at the top of the editor and will show your playlist's name and toolbar with various options.
- File Operations - This will allow you to load, save, export, or start a new playlist. At times there are two options for saving. Save As New will add a new playlist to your library.
- Undo & Redo - These buttons will allow you to undo and redo your last change to the track list.
- Finding the Right Track for Your Playlist. Find Track & Get Recommendations - This is the primary way you'd find tracks for your playlist. You can learn more at
- Flowify - This will auto arrange your playlist for you!
- Edit Playlist Details - This will allow you to edit your playlist's title, description, visibility and cover.
- Options - This will display the various options, such as chart and column visibility, auto-save behavior, and auto-scroll behavior.
The Stats Panel is below the Main Menu. It will display various statistics about your playlist. Filters are also displayed here.
You can click almost any point or row and this will highlight the relevant tracks in your playlist.
- Charts - The charts show line graph for selected features from your playlist. You can configure what features are shown from options in the Main Menu. You can also pick change the x-axis from track numbers to playlist time.
- Artist - This shows a table of artists in your playlist. Tracks displays the number of times an artist appears anywhere in a track, while Primary only shows the number of times an artist appears first in a track.
- Track Feature Summary - Shows a table with some aggregate statistics on every feature.
- Label - Shows a table with every the count of every label found in your playlist.
- Artist Genre - Spotify does not give genre information for each track. Instead genre information can only be found for artists. This breaks down the genres for all artists on a track, so some tracks might have lots of genres.
You can filter your playlist along every track feature. Simply select the feature from the drop down menu and adjust the inputs. By default, filtered tracks will show in a muted color - you can also hide the tracks if you want.
Here's where you can rearrange your playlist, but that's far from it.
On the arranger's header is a menu with, let's face it, a random assortment of actions.
- Show filters - Shows filters in the filter pane.
- Select Visible Tracks - Selects all visible tracks. Useful when filtering!
- Clear Selections - If you have tracks selected then this will clear all those selections.
- Delete Selected Tracks - This will Delete Selected Tracks
- Generate Playlist from Selections - Yep! This will bring you to the generator with all selected tracks as seeds.
- Set Order from Current Sort - The playlist can be sorted by clicking any header. This will make the sort permanent.

- Tracks are dragged by clicking selecting the handle or track number.
- You can start playing the playlist by clicking the play arrow next to the track title. The playlist will start playing from this point.
- There are a lot of relevant menu options shown when clicking the track title, such as Move to a Good Spot and Find Similar Tracks.
- By default values shown in the arranger are their actual values and they are colored by their relative values to the rest of the tracks. These can be changed by going to track options in the Main Menu.
- Touching pretty much any label, such as an artist's name or track title, will bring up a context menu with options for that object.
- You can change the look of the editor by clicking toggle theme under your profile picture.
