Feature preview: PDF Import
SongShow Plus version 8.0 gives you the capability to import text directly from an Adobe Acrobat (PDF) file. Previously, in Version 7, to import text from such a file involved opening the document in Adobe Reader, copying text to the clipboard, then alt-tabbing back to SongShow Plus to paste the text into a new song using the Clipboard importer. Now, you can open the PDF file directly within the importer and easily select and set text without using the clipboard or alt-tabbing between applications.
Here is a screen show of how the new importer looks:
In this process, you can also edit the text to clean up extra spaces, tabs, or chord lines.
This feature is implemented primarily as part of support for importing content from Planning Center Online
, but it can be used for PDFs from any source.
