Under "View" you can select the option to hide purchases on iCloud...You should take a look around the settings before getting too upset..

This is my biggest issue with iTunes. It should be able to play every format of media out there. Even if there is an issue re. licensing a codec there should be an option in the itms to buy a licence for divx, ogg, or whatever.

Search function blows

When I want to search for a particular song, it shows me the song in the song list. fine, but if I want to find said song in a particular playlist, iTunes just sends me to the playlist that the song is in and not the particular song. So, if I have playlists in the 100s and I want a song that is number 545, iTunes does not direct me to it, it just directs me to the playlist and it leaves you at song #1. Is there a way to directly FIND any particular song in any playlist like in iTunes prior? Anyone with info please help.

I haven't downloaded it yet, but does "command-up/down arrow" change the volume as before?

Not being able to column sort iTunes Store results is the only real complaint I have so far.

You can right click any album or song on there and Delete. If it is in the cloud, it removes it from your list so you don't see it anymore. Simple.

I think iTunes 11 looks better on my MB Air 11" than on my iMac 27". There's so much white space now and it's more noticeable with a large screen. I miss coverflow and its darkness, especially in a dimly lit room. I also don't like that the album covers are smaller and no longer adjustable. I'm not a fan of the new feature where colors match albums when being selected. Some colors look nice while others are just hideous to look at so I removed that feature.

With that said, I do like that iTunes 11 starts faster. I also chose to show the status bar & side bar on the screen again since it's hidden by default. NOW iTunes 11 seems more like a nice sharper looking update instead of a total overhaul. i'm quickly getting used to it

I am glad cover flow isn't there personally. Always felt gimmicky. Hated it on itunes (so never used it) and really hate it on iphone (can't seem to avoid if using horizontal)

They probably never realized it was working that way in the first place. It's been a bug all this time, and now they "fixed" it.

I really wish I hadn't upgraded to iTunes 11 now. This is is the worst iTunes upgrade ever. I've just spent hours putting my library back into order after it was all messed up. What happened to the slider to increase/decrease the size of the artwork? What happened to coverflow? I still can't figure out how to re-download previous purchases. The tabs at the top to list TV shows previously downloaded seem to have disappeared. The help sections have not been updated and are now worse that useless.

If this is what Eddy Cue has managed to produce then heaven only knows how bad things are going to get with the other software he's just inherited.

Many people found it unusable, so I think this update very much needed to happen. This puts your content upfront and center.

It feels like a modern app to me

Love the new version, a couple quibbles but it's way better than I ever imagined. And I have to wonder if it has a bit of the Ive influence, I'd be happy to see more of that in 10.9.

I can understand why people are bummed about cover flow but I'm surprised it was used by more than a few people.

It's a bug, since it works in the other view it's probably not an intentional omission. So report it to apple feedback and they'll fix it. This is a major update to the software, there are going to be some bugs here and there.

Having an option of a simple list view would be SO. Much better.
Selecting things to go on an iOS device has always been clumsy. I've had better luck by making a playlist like "iPhone movies", just sync that playlist and do all selections in the other part of the app where list view is available.

Had the same issue and had to re-import my library which was no issue at all. Once I re-imported everything I went into my moves and compared to a printout I did before upgrading. The printout indicated 963 movies while the new iTunes 11 only showed 886 movies unless I went into list view. In list view it reported 963 files. Files being the key work here as it was counting the iTunes Extras as seperate files. I counted the iTunes Extra files and it came to 963 when adding it to the 886. I would assume that is the issue you are seeing and its just the way iTunes counts the files now. I did spot checks on movies and everything seems fine and it matches the file count in finder perfectly.

This option didn't appear for me. I then went into list view, hid the iCloud column from View Options, and only then did I get the option to hide iCloud items. Maybe a bug, I don't know.

My main gripe with the new iTunes is the big coverflow-style-but-not-coverflow images scrolling across the top of the store home pages. They are really annoying in a flash advert type of way. I wish I could hide them.

In the Music section, if you go to Videos, your collection of music videos are displayed with only the title of the music video and a still frame from the music video.

The Artist is not written!

Kind of a major goof - it is what it would be like if MTV played music videos but only displayed the title of the song, and left the viewer to guess who it was by.

Come on Apple, please fix this. Make it more like the Audiobooks section, where both the title and the author are displayed. The same logic applies to Music Videos - title and artist is needed.
