Approximating iTunes DJ in iTunes 11
Authored by: chancer on Dec 14, '12 03:37:04PM

Thank you for this. You just helped me finally understand what that shuffle icon in the playlist is. I had been totally confused about it.

I now understand, and correct me if I'm wrong, that the playlist shuffle icon means "play this playlist in shuffle mode". I had thought it meant "toggle shuffling on or off for this playlist". And the playlist arrow icon seems to mean "play this playlist in non-shuffled mode", rather than, as I'd thought, "toggle playback on or off for this playlist".

I feel a little less crazy now. Whew. Thanks!

And yes, it's a bummer that the current song gets interrupted when you click the shuffle icon a second time, and even that you have to look at Up Next just to see the upcoming play order. The DJ *was* iTunes to me, even as a non-partying solo listener, and I miss it.
