    Loving the new interface and the Album view is making it much easier to sort out rogue albums :D

    Only thing I've noticed so far is that I can't copy album art (from say Amazon) and paste into iTunes. Used to be able to do this in the bottom left-hand corner when selecting and album and tracks.

    Anyone found a way to do this, rather than having to save the file to an image and then attach to a track (can't see how you would do this for a whole album as the option isn't there when selecting multiple tracks)

    If you are in Album view....just right click on the Album and select Get Info. The box that pops up has an artwork box. Right click and copy from the Amazon webpage and paste it into that box. When you click OK, iTunes will add it to all the songs in that album.

    Try this:

    Yeah I noticed the "right-click" doesn't work in the box. Just copy the image as you would always do, then hit "CMD-V" when the artwork box is high-lighted.

    Thanks for the keyboard tip, but still means you can't apply to a whole album and just individual tracks.

    iTune Match also appears to be broken for me in 11, as I'm over the 25,000 track limit :(

    If you right click and Get Info on an Album....while viewing in Albums view....then the box that pops up has a small Artwork box. Paste the art there.

    That's what I've been doing this morning. When you click OK, you'll notice iTunes run through each track and add the art to it.

    You can also Drag artwork to 'artwork box-area' to the right of progress bar at the top...
