My Question or Issue

As of the latest update to the Spotify desktop client, I am no longer able to use Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V to copy and paste songs into particular locations in playlists. This is an essential feature for me that I have been using for years, and I have a hard time understanding why it was removed. The main playlist I use has more than 500 songs in it; previously I was able to paste tracks wherever I wanted within the playlist, but now they all just appear at the end of the playlist, and I have to move tracks by manually dragging them from the end to wherever I want to put them. You can imagine this how frustrating this is when I want to place a track close to the beginning of a playlist with 500+ tracks! Otherwise I don't really mind the new client, but the removal of copying and pasting is a huge headache for me. Thanks for your time.
