Using song information in other applications

You can save all the information about the songs in a playlist or your library as a text file or XML file so that you can import it into a database or use it in another application. You can also copy just one song’s information into another application.

Here are ways to transfer song information into other applications:

  • To export all the song information into a text file, select Music or a playlist, then choose File > Library > Export Playlist. Make sure “Text files” is selected in the “Save as type” pop-up menu.

    All information from the Info window for each song is exported, not just the fields currently displayed in the library or playlist.

  • To copy the information (in the columns that are visible) for just one song, select the song and choose Edit > Copy, and then choose Edit > Paste in another application (for example, an email or text document).
