Copy clip from Timeline to Playlist

What is your operating system? Windows 10

What is your Shotcut version? 22.09.23

Can you repeat the problem? If so, what are the steps?

  • Start a fresh session of Shotcut 22.09.23
  • Import clips in the Timeline
  • Select a clip in the Timeline and Copy it.
  • Press the + button in the Playlist panel. Nothing happens

In v22.06.23

In v22.09.23

One possible workaround:

Open the Source tab between copying the clip and pressing on the Playlist + button.

The bug is an old and general one when you do not specifically drag clips from a file manager to the timeline in a new session. For example, start Shotcut, open an existing project and try it: occurs on every old version. Playlist + is not a clipboard paste but rather appends what is in the Source player. Now, Copy does both add to the clipboard and Source player, but the Playlist + is sometimes not observing that there is something in Source until you switch to it. In your example, it is something subtle that changed with the UI/actions revamp in this version. Low priority but thanks for reporting it.
