Adding Songs

When adding songs, there are settings in the preferences that "auto correct" formatting mistakes.  (Lines that are too long, too many lines on one slide).  Keep this in mind when adding songs to the database.  An empty line denotes a new slide, but if you'd like an empty line in your song, simply put an empty line with <BR> in it.
