    After clicking open the M3U playlist is displayed in the space next to the M3U Playlist button.

    Note: The M3U playlist will imported into the database what is in the mp3tag and import the songs as not active and play them, but you can activate them for permanent use with the track manager (playing an M3U list works like folder import but will not be marked as activated in the database).

    Activate tracks when a M3U list is used go to the track manager and search on disabled tracks these have the line color that you have given or used the standard in the settings on disable tracks.

    Automated is on. [Green Automated] Played song after song till the playlist is empty.

    Assisted is on. [Red Assisted] every song has be started by hand.

    Note: Assisted/automatic purpose is not to instant play.
    Internally when "automated" is on, when the cue next point is reached, it triggers to start the next track from the playlist, in contrast when assisted is on, the cue next is ignored and the track is played until it's end and then it stops.
    See the CUE Editor screen.
    When automated is on, it also triggers the watchdog which will start the next track if the cue next did not triggered the mix, but with a delay.

    INSERT is used with drag and drop. [Default on start-up of RadioDJ] Click on it, drag a song from section D to the playlist onto a song and it will be put in front of the song in the playlist.

    REPLACE is used with drag and drop.Same as INSERT but it replace the song in the playlist.

    [When the color is blue, then REPLACE is off]

    Clear is used to empty the existing playlist (a confirmation screen pops up)

    INPUT can be used for a microphone. When first clicked sound fades down to a lower level for voice over, on a second click, sound fades back up to normal levels.

    INPUT is off. INPUT by mouse click. INPUT is on. Click again to turn off.

    Note from Marius: I do not encourage the usage of a microphone without a hardware mixer.
    A microphone plugged directly into the computer is OK for fun, but when we are talking bout radio, is a big NO.
