Feature Preview: Other Song Importer Enhancements
With the addition of the PDF
song lyrics importers, a new song lyrics importer user interface was created. This interface is superior to the old one in a number of ways. First, you can edit the content before you perform the import. Second, you can add song parts from within the importer itself. Previously, both of these operations couldn't be performed until after the song was imported then re-edited. Third, the layout of the importer is improved by making the parts buttons more accessible.
Because of this, the other existing song importers have been reworked to use the new interface. This includes the PowerPoint song lyrics importer, the text file importer, and the clipboard importer, which is just a variation of the text file importer. So in SongShow Plus 8, all import operations that involve copying text from a standard document format to a song now use the same user interface so the functions are identical.
Below is a screen shot of the new PowerPoint song lyrics importer. You'll notice that slide previews have been replaced by a single text box containing text extracted from all of the slides.
