Version 8.2 > permanent comments on songs


7/5/2016 11:46:44 PM
I can add comments to songs in the program list, with info about fast verse changes, how long instrumentals are. Is there any way to attach these to the song file, so it comes through when added to the program?

You could add a new song part called Comments and just not put it in the verse order.

But you'd still have to copy it out and put it in the comments to have them appear in the program.

If they are short, you could put them in the Title, between parenthesis. Any text in the title field that is between parenthesis does not show up on the screen. But that would have to be for really short comments.

between parenthesis.

Actually I think that the inclusion of a single parenthesis triggers the hiding of further text.
There are other special characters which do the same thing, but the square bracket
does not.

Good to know. Thanks for the tip.

There is a specific notes tab in the song file but unfortunately this does not show when the song is in the program.  You could certainly save your notes/instructions in this section and copy them to the comments field when adding to a program.  This would be similar to the song part suggestion made earlier but would avoid being confused with or accidentally included as an actual song part.
