MediaShout can import songs from various types of text and data files. To prepare text files for importing, see Prepare a Lyric Text File for Import.


Adding songs from files

To add songs to the library from files, follow these steps:

  1. On the Home tab, click Insert Lyric.
  2. Click Gear > Add Lyrics > From Files, From EW (Easy Worship), or From ProP (ProPresenter). The Import Lyrics dialog opens.
  3. Click Browse to select the file(s) or folder containing the songs or library you want to import, then click Open. (You may need to change the file type filter to find the file you are looking for.).
  4. When the import is finished, the Importing Results window appears. It confirms which songs were imported successfully.
  5. Click Close.
  6. The songs are added to the Lyric Library and are ready for use in a script.
