Using DropBox I have my 'main list'of songs and a 2nd folder named 'Songs'. The 'Main' list works fine in LyricPad but I can only get 3 songs in the 'Songs' folder. I edit them in Jota and they should go to the LP folder chosen('Songs'). If I select the Main list for the files it works. Can you have more than one song list?

You certainly can.
I use this functionality myself and I have 5 different folders of lyric files.
Not sure about the dropbox part of it but and folder should work ok as long as it is on your external storage.

Question;
How do you switch between these different maps?
Is that only possible in >options>file location> or is there another nifty way to do that?

And; does LP then immidiatly show the songlist of the corresponding map or does it need a restart?

Would be great to quickly switch between 'maps' because with nearly a thousend songtitles (of which you actually use frequently 30%) the songlist gets quite long. And it would be great to quickly switch between those maps. A map with frequently used songs, and a map with songs which you want to have available 'just in case'.
The new genre tag would not be sufficiant for this.
Maybe a feature request?

At the moment the only way to swap beteen them is by changing options>file location>

A restart of Lyric Pad is not necessary though as when the options are closed it will automatically rescan the selected Lyrics directory

I have a similar situaion but I use set lists to manage the songs

I.e I always have all of the songs in the song list all of the time to quickly deal with obscure requests

I then use different setlists to reduce the number of songs in any one list as it is easy switching between different setlists

I am hoping the introduction of the "title" tag will not overide the automatic use of filenames in the setlist?

This would be a disaster for me - I hope it uses the filename if a title tag is not present? - csn you confirm Dan

I have a full setlist, a setlist of extras, an acoustic setlist etc.

This covers most bases and if I am stuck I can always go to my full song list safe in the knowledge everything is there

Re the title tag in setlists.
Setlists still operate the same. The file name still is entered in the setlist (ie. fully backward compatible).
What has changed is that in the setlist if a song has a different @!title then the title will be displayed.

eg. Lets say you have a file 100.txt which has a "@!title One Hundred" tag in it. In the setlist it would actually have 100 on the line in the file but it would display "One Hundred".
and yes, if you have no @!title tag in a file the filename is used as the title as it always used to.

A new feature that will be introduced soon is the Pick List. This is like an unordered list of songs that you want to play at a gig.
The pick list will display this list of songs (in two columns on screen) and when you click on one it will open that song and remove it from the list (without altering the pick list file).
In this way you have a list of songs that you want to play at a gig with the songs you have already played removed.
