hmmm. not getting very far. when I select "get info" for a single track, the "options" tab is available and I can check "skip when shuffling". However, when I seletct multiple songs, I can't choose the "options" tab. instead, I get the simpler "multiple song information" screen which doesn't have a "skip when shuffling" box.andy2808 said:any songs you don't want on shuffle (comedy songs, interludes etc.) you can choose to remove from the shuffle:
choose your song(s)
click 'get info'
click the 'skip when shuffling' box
i know this would take a while but if grouped together by making a smart playlist you could then apply this to multiple items and delete the playlist (ive only got a 4GB mini so i can do this without taking too long )
this means that to get "skip when shuffling" onto each of the songs I don't want shuffled would mean individually selecting and editing >600 tracks. no way Jose!
so I'm back to using my "Random" SPL - which actually seems to be working out pretty well.
