Q: I just recently noticed an odd icon next to one of my smart playlists, and I can’t figure out what it is. It’s a small exclamation point with a circle around it. Have you seen this? How can I fix it?

- Jacqueline

A: It cost us considerable experimenting to reproduce your problem, but we’ve found it:

This icon, shown above, is formed when a playlist upon which a smart playlist is based has been deleted. Your smart playlist has the “Playlist is” or “Playlist is not” condition, and you’ve deleted the playlist in question. Restore it, or recreate the smart playlist.
