You can enter or edit lyrics to be used for Projector from within the app itself or on the Planning Center website from the Lyrics & Chords box. This lesson from Planning Center will show you how to edit Lyrics on their website, which is the recommended way to do things, since the website offers previews, more powerful editing, and more.
If you need to make "tweaks" to any song lyrics while running Projector (fixing a typo, adding special Projector codes like '::' to force a line break just for Projector slides), we have you covered with the Edit Lyrics feature.
|Note: The '::' special code is now an 'undocumented feature' of PCO Services, which they have kept for purposes of supporting this feature in Projector. So, you won't see it listed in their special codes article any more.|
Tap the Song Lyrics icon
The Song Lyrics icon is only available for song items. If you don't see this button, most likely you have added a regular item and not a song item.
|Note: Lyrics can only be edited when you are connected to the internet.|
Click Save at the upper right when you are done, or Cancel to abandon any changes that have been made.
Lyrics Are Updated & Slides Regenerated
When you click Save, Projector sends the new Lyrics to the PCO Services cloud, the server strips out any of the section heading or special codes and then sends it back to Projector as new slides.
