FS#7295 - Bookmark feature doesn't work on user created playlists.

If you go through your file browser and create a playlist and you try to bookmark any track on that playlist it doesn’t create a bookmark. If you let rockbox create the playlist(by selecting a file in “said” folder) you can create bookmarks for those tracks.

I did find that when you create your playlist you “save current playlist” then clear the playlist and open the playlist you just created and you can bookmark tracks.

Documented in r24060.

Yes, bookmarks are currently not possible on dynamic playlists. This is a limitation that at least should be documented (couldn’t see anything about it in the manual with a quick look).

I suggest displaying a warning explaining this limitation when Create Bookmark is selected with a dynamic playlist: at present it simply does nothing, which is likely to confuse any user not in on this ‘secret’. Alternatively, the Bookmarks section could be ommited from the context menu when the current playlist is dynamic, with an explanation provided in the manual. Better yet, make bookmarks work with dynamic playlists :)

As a rule of thumb I save my playlit and then create my bookmark and it works everytime

I’ve moved the bug to manual because the known limitations of the bookmark system shuold be mentioned int he manual untill they are fixed (which is very unlikely any time soon)
