How to add an audiobook to a playlist in iTunes

December 2012

The redesign of iTunes makes it impossible to use the new "Add to" button to add an audiobook to a playlist. It just recognizes songs and videos, that's all. So after I purchased an audiobook today, I was stumped for a while as to how to get it into a playlist.

The solution was to go "Purchased", which is still along the left-hand side (someone must have overlooked this). From there I could just do a drag and drop from that list into the playlist.

Yes, it's a workaround, but it works! Take that iTunes! I'm so stubborn I will continue to use iTunes no matter how difficult you make it. Well, maybe I'll give up at some point...
