The List pane can be used to quickly create and edit playlists or to create a temporary playlist. You can also use the List pane to create a list of items to burn to a CD or to synchronize to a portable device. The type of list that you create is specified by clicking <List Name> List above the List pane, and then selecting the list type from a menu. Now Playing List is displayed by default.
You can add items to all of the lists and switch between them at any time. For example, while you are playing the items in the Now Playing list, you can switch to the Burn list, and then click the Start Burn button below the List pane to burn the items in the Burn list to a CD.
When you click <List Name> List above the List pane, a menu is displayed that contains additional commands that allow you to manage your list. The following table explains the function of each command on the <List Name> List menus.
