Choose a Play Order

The contents of a song consists of the stanzas, title pages, and blank pages that are stored with its record in the song library.

The play order of a song determines which stanzas, blank pages, and title pages appear and in what order when the lyric cue is played. Stanzas and pages can appear anywhere in the play order, and can appear any number of times (or not at all).


Choosing a play order


Note: To add stanzas or remove them from the play order list, see Add and Manage Stanzas.

To move a stanza to a new position in the play order list, follow these steps:

  1. Select the cue in the Script Area.
  2. Click Insert Lyric. The Insert Lyric pop-up window opens.
  3. Select a song from the library. 
  4. Edit the play order list as follows:
  • To change the order of existing stanzas, drag and drop them in the play order list in the right column.
  • To add new stanzas to the play order list, drag and drop the stanza from the middle column into the play list in the right column.
  • To delete a stanza from the play order list, select the stanza in the right column then click the Delete button.
  • To permanently delete a stanza from the song record, select the stanza in the middle column then click the Delete button. (Warning: this action cannot be undone.)

You can also drag and drop stanzas in the Pages Area to change the play order.

Note: With multi-page stanzas, all pages in the stanza (e.g. Verses 1a, 1b, and 1c) are moved or deleted as a group.
