Importing lyrics only via doc
« on: February 19, 2015, 04:18:56 PM »
Is it possible to import a PDF or TXT file just with song lyrics?
The business of importing a song list as a tabbed text file is just TOO painful, especially for lyrics. I'd rather supply other song parameters manually, but just import lyrics via some sort of document.

Thanks!

If your lyrics are in files, you can attach those files to your songs and display them in the app:

Here's a comparison of the capabilities of attached files versus lyrics pasted into your song records:

The tutorial might be usefull for ApplePads . But I don't succeed in attaching a simple text file in Android.
I copied the simple text files in a location, I am sure they are there, but SLM doesn't see them.
I also need this feature to work; indeed tabbed \n enriched text in Excel is TOO cumbersome.

The tutorial includes instructions for both platforms. It also specifies that you can only attach PDF files, not plain text files, on Android. That's why the Android app doesn't see your text files.
