Sharing Set list with other Band Members
« on: February 01, 2017, 08:49:24 AM »
Hello,

Is there a way to share *all* set list info (including PDFs and Lyrics/Chords), instead of just the basic info?

Cheers!  Leah

(PS, I have tried searching the forum for an answer....but currently to no avail...)

The lyrics and chords you enter on the song edit pages will be shared through the database sync function. Set List Maker does not share attached PDF files. That's a key difference between attaching files and using the built-in fields:

It's also a key difference between Set List Maker and BandHelper, which does sync attached files (documents and recordings):

So, to have your lyrics and chords synced, you can either use the built-in fields instead of attaching files, or you can switch to BandHelper.

Selecting text in PDFs is disabled in Set List Maker because you don't want the copy/paste functions popping up when you're trying to navigate through a show. But you can go to the Documents list, tap a document icon, tap the Open In icon, select iBooks and copy the text from there; then go back to Set List Maker and paste it into the Lyrics field. Then you can go back to the Documents list and delete the PDF if you want.
