Can I export Playlists as text?

Just tried copy-pasting my playlist songs to a mail to show a mate I was listening to free over spotify. Just came up with links. :cry:

Can I export my playlist as text (artist & sing title)?

Hi Charlie,

I have had a go and hit the same problem as you. The only way I found to do it was to print screen and paste that into an email.

Not very tidy I know but the best I can come up with at the moment!

I guess they will add some more functionality in the next realease! Well I hope so!

Take it easy

You can indeed export your playlists. With the playlist selected in Spotify, click the first track and then go down the list to the end and click the last track, whilst holding down the shift key. The entire track listing will now be highlighted. Right-click the selection and a pop-up selection list will appear. From that list you have two options, Copy HTTP link and Copy Spotify URI. The first will give you an HTTP URL for the track on Spotify, which you can select going via your browser. The second will enable the track to be directly launched in the copy of Spotify installed on your computer. You can now paste either selection to a document such as an OpenOffice Text document, which supports hyperlinking.

There is an easy way to get a list of your artists\tracks in a playlist

Open MS Word or Google Doc's (notepad\word pad wont work)
Select all tracks in Spotify playlist
Drag all selected files from Spotify to your Word\Docs program
This will give you: Artist - Title as a list...and that's it!

Edit: To Remove the hyperlinks in MS Word, Select all listings (CTRL+A) Then hold down CTRL+SHIFT & Press F9

I've written a simple tool to make this easier:

It uses the Spotify Web API to export playlists to CSV format and will not store any private data (or any data at all in fact).
