This is a direct copy of this idea which was originally posted 2 years ago. I wasn't a user then, and this idea has since been made inactive, so I'm resurrecting it. Even just a shift-select on the desktop app would help immeasurably. Here's the original idea:
"I am looking for easy ways to organize my library.
I want to do some housekeeping in my library, but I find the current system of dragging and dropping individual playlists is too time consuming when the number of playlists reach this high.
First of all, there should be a way to select multiple playlists at once and be able to handle multiple playlists the same way as I can handle single playlist (ability to drag and drop, and rightclick w/ a special dropdown menu for multiple selected items).
Ctrl-clicking, shift-clicking and shift+arrowkeys would help greatly.
[Edit] This idea is nearing its 2 year anniversary of no official recognition. Good times! :)
As a sidenote my Spotify library now consists of 1296 playlists."
Edit: This idea has been reposted here.
