Can't search playlists when adding new song / Cant scroll large playlist folders when adding song

Can't search for a playlist when adding a song to a playlist.
You used to be able to right click the song you want to add, hover over add to playlist then the playlists come up, then you were able to type for example "work" and my workout playlists would pop up so i could add the song to whichever i want. Now, you have to scroll a long list to try to find what you're looking for.
Ive stayed silent a while thinking it would receive a silent fix to no avail.
I've confirmed this with both windows 8.1 and windows 10. New install of spotify being win 10. Neither works as it used to.

Also I can no longer scroll within a playlist folder which has more than the visible space allows. (if your playlist folder contains say 25 playlists, when adding a song to a playlist you cant find it because theres no scroll bar in the playlist folder.)

Hi @voicedgamer,

Thank you for brining up this concern; I understand this frustration as I also regularly make playlists. My response is not a direct fix to your issue, but I will reach out to the right people to see if they might have a more permanent suggestion.

 

My workaround has been to create specified folders that contain similar styles of playlists so that it declutters my workspace and makes it possible to navigate to the places I need. I understand that at some point you might have too many subfolders and that the ultimate solution is to add a search feature, but hopefully this organization method can help in the short term. I've attached a screenshot of how I organize my list.

 

Please let me know if I can help with this problem in any other way. Thanks!
