Lyrics versus documents: what's the difference?
If you want to add lyrics, chords or other info to your songs, you can either use the built-in Lyrics and Chords fields, or attach your own documents (or both). Here are some differences between the two approaches:
|Editing||Enter and edit directly in Set List Maker||Edit in another application, then copy files into Set List Maker|
|Formatting||Use basic formatting tools in the Song window||Use any formatting and layout tools in your document editing application|
|Sizing||Pinch-zoom to resize; lines wrap so you can zoom up to 8x; line wrapping can optionally be turned off||Pinch-zoom to resize; lines don't wrap, so zooming beyond 2x is typically not useful|
|Colors||Follows the color scheme of the app.||iOS/macOS: follows the color scheme of your document.
Android: follows the color scheme of the app.
|Annotations||No annotation capabilities||Draw or highlight directly onto documents|
|Transposing||Transpose chords with up/down buttons||No transposing capabilities|
|Exporting||Lyrics and chords are copied to other devices||Document links are copied but you must install documents on other devices manually|
|Best for…||People who want to do all editing on their mobile device; who want to copy and paste lyrics from the web; or who don't want to deal with managing separate files||People who prefer to edit on a computer; who already have documents set up for songs; or who need advanced formatting and layout capabilities|
