Short Tutorials: Adding Song Lyrics
LiveWorship comes with a database of over 400 public domain songs. You can also add new songs to the database quickly by copying song text (such as from a song lyric webpage) and then pasting this into the Editor Window.
Adding a Song to a Presentation
Creating a New Song
Importing Songs from CCLI/SongSelect (available in v1.2+)
LiveWorship also allow storing of CCLI data such as Title, Artist, Copyright and CCLI# for each song. To access these fields, right click on the song title in the media library and choose "Advanced" from the menu.
In version 1.2+ there is an import feature for files that have been downloaded from the CCLI/Song Select site. These files will be recognized as SongSelect when you import them into LiveWorship and the CCLI data will be automatically entered for each song. In version 1.3, this feature also recognizes SongSelect files that use the English spelling of "licence" instead of the American English spelling of "license".
Importing Songs from PowerPoint (or Apple's Keynote) slides (available in v1.2+)
If you have already created PowerPoint files that have song lyrics, you might try to convert those into LiveWorship slides. In version 1.2+, if you import a PowerPoint file LiveWorship attempts to launch PowerPoint (you must have PowerPoint installed on the same computer) and then tries to strip the text and background images and recreate the slides in LiveWorship.
Note that Mac users with Intel Macs (running v1.3.26 optimized for the Intel Macs), will not be able to import PowerPoint through LiveWorship. Our method of converting PowerPoint files was broken when LiveWorshp became Universal Binary (v1.3.26) and PowerPoint, along with the entire MS Office suite, is still running in a virtualization layer called "Rosetta" on Intel Macs. We have a stand-alone application that will convert PowerPoint files. Download our PowerPoint Converter application, unzip and place inside the LiveWorship folder (found inside your Applications folder). Launch this application to convert PowerPoint files into LiveWorship presentation files.
To import Keynote presentations, first export from Keynote as a PowerPoint file format and then follow the instructions for importing a PowerPoint presentation.
