Comping with playlists in Mixbus

I know about comping with layers, which works well if everything was recorded to a click track and aligned on the grid, but almost everything I work with is more free-form and takes in layers rarely line up. I saw in the manual that some people use a playlist for each take and then comp from there, but I'm having trouble figuring out how to do that -- as far as I can tell there's no "playlist view" where I can see the different takes (with layers of course I can explode the view and see them all).

So my question is: do you set up a playlist as the comp (aka the "destination" playlist) and copy and paste sections of the other playlists to it? Or do you create a new track and copy/paste sections from playlists to it? It's not really explained in the manual and I'm having trouble visualizing how the process works.
