You're right. I'm currently only displaying the first <lines>-tag. I can't see any use of multiple lines except parts and I haven't found time to implement this, yet. Handling multiple languages is not supported in MySongBook as well.
(and there's also some Properties/Metadata i didn't implemented, yet: comments, keywords, themes ...)

The use-case is having different parts (i.e. <lines part="Freddy"></lines><lines part="Brian"></lines>).

Here is the converter: https://github.com/filmor/chordpro

/Edit: The output is now handled quite fine (the indentation seems to be broken for some files).

My online OpenLyrics Generator should be able to make a reasonable fist of ChordPro format lyrics as well as OpenSong and text blocks now.

Click this link OpenLyrics Generator

Just copy the contents of the right panel to a text editor and save it with the XML extension and then move it to the MySongBook folder on your device.

Michote's MySongBook is becoming a very useful program for musicians. Is there any feature missing in your use case that we should see if Michote would include.

I think that being able to print out the songs in a neatly formatted way without the xml would be useful.

New features looks great!
+1 for the printing ability.
Another cool feature would be to be able to create a list of songs to be performed on a single night and tell MySongBook how many times I would like to repeat a song and it to be able to jump to the next song once it's done.

Ok I'll put printing on the whishlist.

@ajugns Just create a new list and modify the verseorder of exh song. You can add each elemt as often as you like (e.g. V1 C V2 C V1 C V2 C)

with keypress scrolling (BT-Keyboard/Pedal) there is already the ability to jump to the next song. Just hit next twice after the last Element.
(for normal scrolling there is swipe to the right)

Auto-scroll currently re-initialises the current song when it finishes. Do you think that it should it go to the next song in the song list by default?

personally, I like how it just stays at the bottom of the song, in case my worship leader decides to repeat the chorus at the end or if the song tempo ends up being slower than I had originally indicated in the duration.

The question was more: When you press play/pause after the song has completed and you are finished with it, should it go to the start of the next song or back to the start of the current one?

Did you know?

If your song has repeated elements you only have to enter the details once in your song's XML file. The <verseOrder> property takes care of repeating the element. eg if a chorus is repeated after every verse you only need to enter the chorus details once. Your verseOrder in the <properties> section would look like something this...

Code:
    <verseOrder>v1 c1 v2 c1 v3 c1 v4 c1 v5 c1</verseOrder>

Shiny new 0.3.0 is out!
You can now create songs from scratch and edit them in the app!

Caution: In v.0.3.0 the Preference Backend has changed. All custom Lists from previous versions will be gone with this update. Also reset your Preferences!

Changelog:
  • Create and Edit Songs
  • Create custom Songlists
  • Transpose Chords
  • Change Fontsize and Linespacing
  • Block Screen from dimming
  • Autoscrolling

Also the Online Documentation is shaping up well, thanks to @johncc.

As always:
I like to hear your feedback and contribution (translation (fr, it,...), documentation, new features code is on github) is always welcome!

My online OpenLyrics Generator has been ignoring lyrics lines containing a colon ( : ). If anybody has had problems with that, it is now fixed.

It is here - OpenLyrics Generator

I installed V.0.3.0 from the above link, and when I now select Preferences from the drop down Menu, nothing happens. I tried a luna restart and a full device restart, but I still can't access Preferences. Any help would be great!

soory for this. Seems to be a silly little bug. I'll release a fixed version tomorrow.
