Help Jump through 500 Playlists

Is there a quick, easy way to jump through 500 playlists so I can go from Allman Brothers to Yes without scrolling through every playlist in the device? I've always used playlists for my collection - it's easier for me to use for classical collections than albums or artists. Playlists in the Zune HD don't give the option of jumping to a first letter like you can with albums, artists, or songs. I hope there's a neat trick I can use to jump from A to Z.

help please!

Behold! Neat trick!

If there's no letter thing, then when you are at the top of the list, press the top of the screen like you're going back a menu, and slide your finger down to the bottom. This will kind of "bounce" you to the very bottom of the list. This trick also works everywhere in the interface except within an app.

EDIT: If you don't understand, here's a video I found. He does it around 1 minute 17 seconds . . .

Yeah, I do that myself sometimes. Although they should implement sorting by alphabet into playlists.

thanks for that trick. It's a great help.

Do you have another for going half-way down the list ? ;o)

I think the alphabet tile method should be implemented for every list which is over, say, 30 items long. Like, if we ever get that many apps... I'm already kind of tired of flicking through my app collection, to be honest, but that's also because I have many 3rd party / self-developed apps I should clean out.

Nope, unfortunately you get top, bottom, or hope you can flick really fast.

If only everyone had the skillfulness I do. I can go through my (meager) 1,000 something list of songs in probably about 7 seconds by flicking.

This lack of letter box things in the playlist section is an interface thing that should be fixed. I don't understand why it is in every other section except for the playlist section.
