I’m running the latest beta of Mohave (10.14 18A377a) and have hit a problem with iTunes.
iTunes used to work just fine, and I don’t often manually add music to my library (by ripping CDs) so I am not sure exactly when this issue arose, but it’s certainly been present for the last couple of betas. It may even have been around since before I put Mohave on my machine.
The problem is that when I make library changes by adding tracks from an external source, or change metadata (album/artist/track) etc., the changes are only available until iTunes restarts, at which point, they are lost and just disappear.
I ended up getting frustrated when trying to add a ripped CD a few weeks ago and ended up buying the digital version too. This gave me an extra piece of the puzzle… when iTunes is restarted, all changes are lost as I said, including the album that I bought digitally - it doesn’t appear in the "Recently Added’ list immediately, only after about 10 seconds, then only as a cloud download.
So, it seems that the issue is that changes to my library are not being stored. Permissions are fine, with my user having full read/write.
It feels like a permission issue, but I don’t know where else to check.
Any got any ideas what is happening? It’s very frustrating…

Thank you in advance.
