[Bug] Create Smart Playlist from 'traditional' filters not working

beckfieldbeckfield Posts: 3,838Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

Before the Custom Filter feature was added, I could do the following:

  1. In Music library, select 'Genre' > 'Celtic' from Filter menu.
  2. Click 'Add to playlist,' name it, and save.

A smart playlist was created with all Celtic tracks. Adding 'Celtic' tag to additional tracks automatically added them to the playlist.

Now, this no longer works. If I follow the steps above, the Smart Playlist is created, but it is empty. If I manually select all the albums after Step 1, then click 'Add to playlist,' it wants to create a standard playlist, not a smart one.
