I was trying to find a way to copy a song to folder while listen to it but Edit > Copy doesn't looks to work (it doesn't Paste neither a file nor a text information)

I'm using rhythmbox 2.97, ubuntu 12.10

If you select a song under Music and then do Edit > Copy, you can then click on 'Play Queue' or a playlist (right click in the left bar and click 'New Playlist...' if you haven't made one before) and use Edit > Paste to place this song into the list.

You can also hold Ctrl and click multiple songs and then copy them en mass to a new playlist.

Thanks. I thought it should copy the song or the song info to the clipboard and I was supposing it was a bug. – Tosho Jan 21 '13 at 8:11
