    I have a DP version of Yosemite and theres also a new version of iTunes downloaded, but there isn't any sidebar . How I wonder, if, anyone uses the new version, are tunes dragged and dropped because I can't see any libraries only playlists that doesn't allow tunes

    I'd assume it's the same as pervious versions when you need to make the sidebar viewable. Should up in the "View" drop down menu (if the sidebar still exists that is)

    in the menu I think under view there is a show
    side bar option
    I don't have it in front of me now but look and you should find it
    you can also right click on a song and add
    to play list as well

    There is no ability to show a persistent sidebar. You can see the side bar by accessing the Playlist view. I think it is stupid.

    As is said it's blaming stupid you can't view sidebar as such. I tried adding the file in file>add file but that didn't work . All the tabs even the device tab is at the top. Thanks anyway guys

    People with "I'd assume" or "I think" should not post if they don't have a real answer.

    And no, there's no option to a sidebar like in iTunes 11, and the sidebar in Music/Playlist is not a real sidebar.

    And people shouldn't be rude when others try to help. Keep it cute or put it on mute.

    Not meaning to be Rude or disrespectful to anyone and grateful of the help but if people read my second post they would've seen the following ,'As is said it's blaming stupid you can't view sidebar as such. I tried adding the file in file>add file but that didn't work . All the tabs even the device tab is at the top. Thanks anyway guys' and I had said there that, 'you can't view sidebar as such'so in that respect I think its right not to 'assume' or think because the action is done one way it inevitably is carried out the same way unless its been proven so because I did say that I had already tried that. And before I posted , I might add ;-)

    Sorry for the wrong info

    When I replied yesterday I was not with my computer and did know that I had
    seen the side bar, It is correct it is not in the menu bar anymore
    I was thinking of the info tab that show at the bottom.
    I did find where I had seen it, on the playlist tab I have the sidebar there.
    Sorry for the misleading reply.
    :(

    There is no more sidebar on "albums" view. Go to playlist view to get the old sidebar. And the sidebar basically is on the top now in any view.

    Had to clean install 10.10 over the weekend - Finder issues from installing it over Mavericks, another reason I preferred development pre-10.7 as each beta required downloading an image to burn to a DVD for a clean install as to not risk third party app's and plugin's in debugging a major OS X release. I will not make the mistake of installing iTunes 12. Horrible. For the first time since iTunes has been released, I will be sticking with the previous version unless it improves.

    Your right but you can't drag and drop as before that I can see , I even tried going to file and adding to file without success . Mind i've not tried dragging and dropping tunes or any other media This was a DP version of OS8 .

    I had an issue where iTunes 12 wouldn't read my iTunes Library folder from OS X Mavericks and iTunes 11. I copied the music library to ~/Music but iTunes 12 won't load it. Not even after holding down option when starting iTunes and selecting the iTunes Library folder manually.

    Ended up having to download everything fresh from iTunes Match. :confused:

    Could have worked too, but I thought things might become corrupt or something. I still find it weird it didn't just take the iTunes folder as a whole like every other version before it did.
