Lyrics Buttons in Songs List
« on: May 25, 2019, 05:51:17 PM »
My partner and I are both updated. When I send him a database, when he imports it, the lyrics folders don't appear in the song list left pane, but the lyrics are still in the editing lyrics window. The shows are still ok, but we occaisionaly work from the song list, and this really throws a monkey wrench into the works. Any thoughts? We both use Androids.

I don't think this is related to import/export. See:

http://forum.arlomedia.com/index.php/topic,2268.0.html

That thread is for BandHelper, but this part of the functionality is the same.

This didn't happen untill we updated and exported/imported. I followed the link and found nothing that addressed this except that we should be using set lists or something. The problem never appeared before this update. We normally use shows, but occaisionally freestyle from the song list. The only way i can see around this is to create a new show alphabetically with the entire songlist.

The Songs list is designed for setting up your songs. When you're performing, you should be using a show or a smart list. This gives you access to all the performance-related functionality, and if you want access to all songs, a smart list is easier than manually adding all songs to a show.
