    Specs:
    13" MBA 2011, 1.7 GHz i5, 4 GB RAM, 128 GB
    iTunes - ALAC & iTunes Plus
    My MacBook Air has 128 GB storage on it so I try to save space where I can. When I import a cd, I use ALAC, and then back that copy up onto an external drive for archival purposes. Then I convert all of those lossless files to ITunes Plus. Then I delete the lossless copies from the MBA.

    A little background, now for the issue.

    With ITunes 10, I would highlight the lossless copies and click File > Create New Version. The lossless copies would stay highlighted, and I would delete them once the conversion was completed. Now, with iTunes 11, not only do they not stay highlighted, but there is no rhyme or reason to which of the two is the lossless and which is the AAC.

    So I have to manually go through each track and go "ok, which one are you?" Sometimes it is the one on top, sometimes the one on the bottom. I hope this is making sense. Is there an easier way to do this?

    Yes. In iTunes, adjust your View menu so that file type is one of the visible columns.

    Solved
    It took me a minute to find that option, but that is exactly what I was looking for.
    Thank you.
