On iOS Song One uses the device's camera to add scanned paper documents to your library. Scanned documents are saved as PDF image files and can be auto-scrolled, annotated and enriched with metadata.
Note: PDF images cannot be converted into a native Song file format. The recognition of chord symbols and the auto-creation of chord charts require text-based PDFs. (See import PDF documents to learn more.)
To scan a paper document tap/click on the inward pointing arrow in the upper left corner of the library panel. (If the library panel is not visible tap/click on the three lines in the upper left corner of Song One's main window.)
Select 'Scan Document' from the pop-up menu (only availlable on iOS).
When launching the scanner for the first time a pop-up dialog will ask for your permission to use the camera. (If the pop-up dialog is not shown go to Song One's app settings to grant your permission.)
Use the rear camera to take a picture of the desired paper document by tapping on round shutter button to the right.
Once the picture has been taken a preview of the scanned picture appears. Tap on the circled corners of the preview to adjust the perspective and crop the preview:
Tap on 'Keep Scan' in the bottom right to save the image. It will be minimized and displayed at the bottom of the window:
Tap on the save button to the right of the preview to add the scanned document to your Song One library.
Note: You may add scans before saving the document. Tap on the round shutter button to the right and restart the scanning procedure for additional pages:
