I'm looking for a way to prevent my Library and Playlists from interfering with each other, or at least maybe they could play well together.
Currently, I've erased everything from my Library in an attempt to solve this problem. I've got about 20 Apple Music Playlists. Currently, I've made all these playlists available for offline use.
I keep attempting different solutions to this problem:
If I choose to either + or ‘Make available offline’ any particular song from a playlist that is available offline, it goes into my Library.
However, when I remove any of these songs from my Library by ‘Remove from My Music’, playlists that contain these songs are no longer available offline. To make things worse, if I try to ‘Make available offline’ again, nothing happens. The playlist will not download again.
I'm not sure if this is a bug or if I'm doing something wrong.
I've found another unexpected behavior, if I add a song to my Library by clicking + on a song in a downloaded Playlist, it will appear in my Library. By all appearances, the song is available offline, but the context menu still gives me the option to ‘Make available offline’. I don't understand why this option is available to me, when the songs are already downloaded.
Here's an Imgur album I created to show how reproducible the problem is.
