Move multiple songs in playlist

I’ve been trying to select and move (manually resort) songs in a playlist.
I’ve read in some threads here, that moving multiple songs should be possible, but I am wondering how.

As you can see in my screenshot, I’ve selected a couple of songs. When I try to move them upwards, only the first song is taken, while all others are still being selected.

How can I move all songs together to a new place in the playlist?
Many thanks for your help!

I don’t think you can move multiple tracks.

I’ve noticed this as well. It is possible to batch “remove” tracks but not move them. I don’t think it is possible to merge a group of tracks from another playlist/queue?

Playlists from the streaming partners seem to have additional issues moving tracks around and customizing generally (adding, deleting, merging). Maybe it is different with Tidal but with Qobuz:

  1. In the Qobuz section I cannot re-order playlists at all (either singly or in groups). That is, the Qobuz playlists have no hamburger “handles”.

  2. If I favorite a Qobuz playlist it will end up in my roon Playlists section. I can reorder my own playlists but not my favorited Qobuz ones. That is my favorited Qobuz playlists have no hamburger “handles”. This is confusing that the playlists even look different in that respect.

  3. If I “play” my Qobuz playlists, then I can re-order them from the queue. That is, now they have hamburger “handles”.

There may well be very good reasons for the different behaviors and maybe this is really a feature request. But in the meantime it is just very confusing when self-generated and streaming partner generated playlists not only have different behaviours, they look different as well (it took me a long while to notice that). I would have thought they should always look the same but the hamburgers are greyed out if they are non-functional. Or maybe there is some other way of knowing what type of playlist you are dealing with? With either type of playlist though it would be nice to move around blocks of tracks.

Three years since my initial question, are there any updates on this?

I am still struggling with the fact that when I add new songs to a large playlist with e.g. 200 tracks, the new track is put at the very end of the playlist (position 201). If I add e.g. 5 new tracks to this playlist, and I have this playlist manually sorted by Artist/Album/Year and the artists starts with an “A”, I have to move manually every single song from position 201-206 to e.g. 10-16. Most other music apps like Apple Music allow to select and move multiple songs at a time. This saves a lot of time and makes handling of larger playlists much easier… Would be great to have this feature added to an future release.
