Exporting Playlists
Previous  Top  Next

You can export a playlist to either the clipboard or to a Rich Text file (compatible with many word processors). You can also export the playlist in a file that makes it easier to share with other Worship LIVE! users.

·For Sharing: to save the playlist to share with another Worship LIVE! user, select the appropriate Export option on the song File menu. Normally, a playlist file includes information on the filenames and databases of the included songs. When you give a playlist to another Worship LIVE! user, he may not have his songs stored in the same folders as you, and the program would be unable to load the playlist properly. The Export for Sharing option skips the filenames so the file will load more easily, but this also forces the program to rely on matching song titles (which can be duplicated in a database, so it's not a guaranteed match). Also, announcements are not saved in an exported playlist.  

·For Sharing With Songs: if you're not certain that the computer which will be using the exported playlist has a current copy of all the songs on your playlist, use this option. The song files will be included in the single playlist file that is exported, and when Worship LIVE! opens this playlist file, the user will have the option to import those songs into the database before the playlist is opened.  

·For Sharing, with all media: If you need to move your playlist, plus audio and video and image files, to another computer, this is a good option. It will create a single (and probably very large) file with not only the playlist, but any multimedia files also embedded within the playlist. This will include any image files which are referenced by playlist projection formatting.  
·When you open this playlist file, the software will ask if you would like to extract the media files. You will be asked to select a destination folder. Then the media files will be written to the selected folder. The media filenames will be adjusted automatically, so that once the playlist is open it will be properly linked to all the media files. If any media files already exist, you will be asked if you'd like to overwrite them.  
·Note that the generated file will be at least as large as the sum of all the media files. This can obviously get very big very quickly.  

·Clipboard: to send the playlist to the Windows clipboard, click the Export button on the toolbar, or use the appropriate Export option on the playlist File menu. Please note that some email programs use HTML formatting, not true Rich Text (RTF) formatting, and pasting RTF into an email may result in chord and line spacing changes. If you need to do this, we suggest pasting it into a word processor first, and then copying it from there to your email program.  

·Rich Text file: to save the playlist as a RTF file, with formatting included, select the appropriate Export option on the song File menu. After you select a name, a new RTF file will be created, and the original songs will not be affected.  

The clipboard and rich text file exports are very similar to a printout and include a playlist summary, and the title, contents, comments, and copyright/composer information of each song.
