Add PraiseCharts Files to Songs

You can import PraiseCharts files when you add a new song or within an existing song. Once PraiseCharts files are imported, they are like any other files and available to other users.

In an existing song, select the + to add a file to the arrangement.

  • Chord Chart + Lyrics & Chords: Import the TXT chart and lyrics file into the editor, which allows you to edit the text and transpose the file for any key you add.

  • Arrangement Files/Key Files: If the PraiseChart file contains multiple keys, they are added as separate files and listed in the appropriate key.

    Caution

    Some older PraiseCharts PDF files will still be imported as one PDF that includes many keys in that one file. Contact PraiseCharts for help with this.

  • Orchestration (All Parts) is one PDF with all Instrument parts included.

  • Orchestration is for a specific key, and it will get the file in that key and split all the instruments into their own files!

  • Chord Chart: This is a non-editable chord chart PDF and file in a specific key.
