Using textedit?
Authored by: Anonymous on Apr 11, '03 04:17:14PM

Does anyone know of a script that will let you export a playlist as a text file to text edit? I don't have appleworks and don't want to pay for it when i don't really need it. I thought about just replacing appleworks with textedit in the script, but it still needs the template. Sorry that this is a bit off topic.

How about iTunes->File->Export [Song List] [Library]? Song list gives you a list as a .txt, Library gives you a list as a .xml.

You can also select the tracks you want in iTunes, copy, and paste into the text-editing app of your choice.

Yeah, believe it or not simple cutting and pasting works, no need for a 3rd party app.

For best results, ctrl-click (or right-click) on the catagory bar in the song listing window. The pop-up which controls what track info shows comes up. Just turn off everything except "artist" (and "time" if you're so inclined.) Then just "select all" and paste it into TextExit or Word, whatever.
