Playlist Filtering

The Search playlist function in Amarok is very powerful, as it allows you to search for different tracks by various constraints. The search results limits what you can actually see, which makes it easy to queue up wanted tracks, or remove them from the playlist.

When you type something in the Search playlist field, Amarok will search in your playlist and mark matching tracks, artists and so forth.


The first track that matches the current search will be highlighted as in this example:

Search Preferences
