Hi Folks, I'm hoping someone can answer some questions for me. I was using the Songbook Pro app on my iPad and importing various songs into the app. But since the changes to the site I am not able to import the songs formatted as they were in the past. Instead I am getting just text with chords interlaced in the text but not formatted. Or, in other cases I am just getting guitar tabs, or dotted lines, even though the song appears fine on the chordie site.
I'm relatively naive and new about these things so maybe I am missing something obvious. Thanks!
I'm not familiar with the app on iOS, but my guess is that it's not reading the Chordpro formatting. Can you try changing the song's VIEW (click the eye then choose chordpro) before import if that's an option? If not, this is good information to know and may be a bug. In the meantime, there are other ways around it (like viewing the chordpro version and copying the text then pasting it into a new song file inside Songbook Pro). Let us know how this works out for you using the different view please!
Here's a picture for reference, the little eye image would be on the right hand side of the screen in standard desktop view, but may be in a different location on a mobile device or using the Songbook App.

I always hit the recent posts button which has become "Active Posts" in the new layout. I don't know if anyone else can see it but I have a blue line running across the screen at the 4th thread. It says "sticky" right in the middle.
If someone could educate me on how to take a screen shot I will post it.
I have seen this as well. I'll make sure it's noted! Thanks Joe!!!
Someone else mentioned about some of the poetry being chopped short, so I had a look through some that I'd posted. Sure enough, most of them are cropped to only a few lines. Are they gone beyond recovery? If so, they can be re-posted at the original place.
Restoring truncated posts is on the to-do list! However, if you'd like to edit a post you've made in the past, or simply post a reply on your thread with the full poem, you are absolutely welcome to do so!
