Would like to add episodes before/while it is downloading

So, I turn on wi-fi, hit refresh/update, and read about which podcast episodes I want to add to my playlist. But, I have to wait for them to be downloaded before I can add. Could we have an add to playlist choice before it's downloaded?

The playlist is only for

The playlist is only for episodes that have already been downloaded, but they will get added to the playlist automatically after the download completes. You could just go press on each episode that you want, and they'll get downloaded and added to the playlist.

What most people do is set up DC to do auto-downloads, so as new episodes arrive, they get downloaded and added to the playlist.

Thanks for posting.

Thanks! But... if I'm not

Thanks! But... if I'm not going to auto-download (I am not - I read the descriptions before deciding which episodes to hear), is there any way it will be automatically added to the playlist after downloading? When I long press, I can choose to download, but I can't choose to add to playlist until the download is over. I'd like a choice like "add to playlist after download" or whatever, because I have to go back into each podcast again twice - first to download, and later to add to playlist, when it could just be one press.

Yep, as soon as the download

Yep, as soon as the download is complete, the episode will get added to the playlist, as long as it is not a user playlist with the auto-add to playlist disabled. All of the non-user playlists will have it added automatically.
