Repertoire Help / Export / Import
« Last post by Phil on Today at 06:50:07 AM »
I needed to get 350 songs moved to another account.  We mostly use the Lyrics window rather than documents so we can transpose on the fly for the singers.  I wrote a small PHP script that converts the file that BandHelper exports (from the Song export, not Document) into the format expected by BH for song import.  The export file had both a Lyrics field and a LyricsHTML field.  I noticed that when using the "Lyrics" field I lost most of the carriage returns and the charts where unreadable.  Oddly, they had a few '\n's here and there, but most were gone.  But using the LyricsHTML field worked great.  I didn't convert the '<br />'s to \n or anything.  So now I'm happy I have all 350 charts correctly displayed in the Lyrics window of my new account.

You can add links to the Notes field, or any custom field, then place those fields onto your layout and they will be clickable.

Sorry, perhaps was the description a bit short.....

I like to provide links, mostly to YouTube videos for songs we play.
It would practical to store the links within the songs page.

Right now I copy the links to the annotation field, but thy are not active from there.
I’d like a field In my layout, where I can click the link stored with the Song.

Pretty complicated to explain..... but really nothing very special.
Cheers

What do you mean by "store links within a song"? Links to what, and for what purpose?

hi,
attached videos to songs appear in documents.

I would like to have videos in their own section plus a separate field (or fields) to store links with a song.

Or did I miss something?

cheers

Polls / Re: Does BandHelper fulfill its promise?
« Last post by Uwe on September 20, 2018, 05:13:25 AM »
If you want to customize this for different bandmates (e.g., bass tabs versus guitar tabs), we would need a way to edit another users' personal fields, and then a way to select a different user's data on the share page. That would be easier if you were doing this this using different documents for each bandmate, rather than the personal lyrics and chords fields.

I think making a pdf with header data like its in the packet version, just for one song and from the song edit page with lyrics/chords and selectable documents that are attached to the song to add to the pdf would make a great start.

Since app version 3.3 last June, the Multiple MIDI Buttons are now resizable. Sorry for the delayed reply. Maybe you already found this.

I think so -- I haven't seen any issues.

An iOS 12 optimized version is in Apple's review queue and should be released in the next day or two.
