HI.. I’m using Dex 3.7 and my user lists used to save and update to saved playlist automatically…not now, does it not do that now and do I have to save it by only export now…this is on a new computer with a new paid program..old computer that I use as back up that has been upgraded from dex 2 to dex 3 still saves it to saved playlists upon closing program…thank you… Overall Great ProductSeptember 9, 2016 at 3:26 pm #9392
Thanks! However, I’m a little confused I think. DEX 3 has never auto-updated playlists. If you nest your folders as favorites, to add new songs to the search cache/internal database you just need to click on the folder you added new songs to – once you “see” the songs load in the middle library pane they are added.
Playlists are just that, playlists. They are static lists – so if you want something added to one you need to manually add the tracks.
I may be missing the point here – so let me know!!September 11, 2016 at 10:39 am #9409
Thanks for answering.. If I have one of my user lists pulled up, ex.”dance party” while useing Dex3 and search and add a song to it and then exit out of the program should it save the added song to the existing list in my folder C:\Users\surfj\OneDrive\Documents\PCDJ-DEX3\Playlists\dance party without actually having to export the whole playlist to this folder again.. Thank youSeptember 12, 2016 at 10:28 am #9413
Sorry, still confused! In DEX 3 all playlists etc SAVE to the internal database. The ‘database’ file located in Documents -> PCDJ-DEX3 -> Database.
All playlists, the physical database list and any folders contents you ever open (to view once) in DEX 3 save to the internal ‘database’ file. There is no ‘playlists’ folder anymore – that was last used in DEX 3.3 I believe (maybe even earlier).
Playlists should still always display as soon as you open the software – exactly how they were before you properly shut down DEX 3.
If you want to move playlists to another machine as an M3U playlist file you can indeed right click -> export playlist.
Let me know if this helps – or not!February 26, 2017 at 7:43 am #12345
I have a playlist question. While using DEX 3, w-hen I move a song to one of my playlist’s to play later, and I then happen to add it a second or even a third time, why does it continually keep adding the track? It seems like the playlist would know that the song has already been added, like it does when I use PCDJ-VJ?February 27, 2017 at 10:00 am #12346
Because it’s quite possible someone may want a specific track in a playlist more than just once?
People use DEX 3 for all types of things, such as theatrical events for example – and they may re-play the same track three or four times during the event.It’s better to have full flexibility than hard-coded ‘rules’ like that IMO. You have the flexibility to add the song as many times as you wish, or not. You can simply remove the song by clicking on it and clicking the ‘delete’ button on your keyboard.
