Is there a way to import a playlist from one iTunes library to another (on different computer?)

    I also want to copy the music, not just the playlist metadata.

    The problem is my main computer has a HUGE library on it.

    I want to make a smaller library on my Air that syncs with iCloud Music Library/Apple Music.

    You can select all the songs in a playlist, and then drag them over to a folder in the Finder.
    That'll copy the files.
    Then copy the files over to your Air and drag into an empty playlist.

    Ah, funny that I never knew that; thanks!

    It still boggles my mind that you can't hard sync a playlist from iTunes to iPhone now, iCloud library or not. Sigh.

    What do you mean by that? I only sync one playlist from iTunes to my iPhone.

    With iCloud library, you can't sync playlists.

    Why not?
    Are we not supposed to be making our own playlists anymore?
