You can display the song credits on stanza pages in a lyric cue.

 

Displaying the song credits

 

To display the song credits in a stanza, follow these steps:

  1. Click to cue to open it in the Inline Editor.
  2. Select a stanza in the Pages Area.
  3. On the Home tab, click Insert Object > Reference. A new text box is inserted into the page.
  4. Move the text box to the desired location.
  5. On the Home tab, click Insert Token then select the type of information you want to appear in the text box: Title, Author, Hymnal, Copyright, or CCLI License etc.


Format the font and alignment of the song credits like you would any other text.


Tips:

  • You can add text to the text box before adding the song credit information. For instance, type "written by" before clicking the Author button.
  • The reference will only be visible in the stanza where you inserted it. If you want it to show on other stanza pages, highlight the text box, then on the Home tab, click Object Visibility then select the stanza names where you want it to show or select Show on All. You do not have to go to each page individually to show or hide the song credits.
    • If you select Show on All, all stanzas will show the song credits, but pages that are not stanzas (such as Title pages or Blanks) will not.
    • If you select Last Stanza, the credits will always show on the last stanza, even if a new stanza was inserted after you set the visibility options.
  • Save your song credit settings and customizations to the template so you don't have to reset formatting or object visibility when inserting new Lyric cues.
