Library Panel
Use the library panel to access and maintain your song catalog. It allows you to sort, search, add or delete songs, create setlists and print, export or auto-scroll a selected song.
Show/hide the library panel by tapping/clicking on the three lines in the upper left corner of the song editor.

Adding Songs

To import a song tap/click on the button with the inward pointing arrow in the top left corner of the library panel.
macOS & iOS:
iOS:
To create a new song instead of importing a song tap/click on the plus sign to the left of the label 'Library'.

Delete Mode (Library)

To delete songs activate the delete mode by tapping/clicking on the circled minus sign to the right of the label 'Library'. A red minus icon will appear to the left of each song title.
Tapping/Clicking on the red minus icon will irreversibly delete the corresponding song.
De-activate the delete mode by tapping/clicking on the circled minus sign to the right of the label 'Library' when you are done.

Exporting Songs

To export a song select it from your library with a long tap/right click.
Then tap/click on 'Export Song' and make a selection from the submenu. (See Printing & Exporting to learn more.)

Sets

A set is a collection of songs in your library. Sets for live performances list the songs in the order they are to be performed.
Tap/Click on the plus sign to the left of the label 'Sets' to create a new set.
A pop-up dialog appears to allow you to specify its name (e.g. 'Set 1').

Setlists

Once a set has been created tap/click on its name to access its setlist. Add songs from the 'Library' above to the 'Setlist' via drag and drop. (See Quick-Select to learn how to add songs without using drag & drop.)
The order of the songs in a setlist can be changed by dragging and dropping the three lines to the right of the song's title to the desired position:

Delete Mode (Sets/Setlists)

To delete sets (or songs in setlists) activate the delete mode by tapping/clicking on the circled minus to the right of the label 'Sets' (or the label 'Setlist'). A red minus icon will appear to the left of each set (or to the left of each song of the selected setlist).
When the delete mode is active tapping/clicking on the red minus icon will irreversibly delete the corresponding set (or the reference to a song from the setlist). The original songs will remain in the library.
De-activate the delete mode by tapping/clicking on the circled minus sign to the right of the label 'Sets' (or the label 'Setlist') when you are done.

Set Collections

Set collections allow you to organize a large number of setlists. Song One displays all the sets of your song catalog in one list named 'Active Sets' (sets you currently use). As this list grows you may create custom set collections to limit the number of visible sets for easier access.

Active Sets & Archived Sets

All created sets are automatically added to a collection named 'Active Sets'. You may hide a set that is currently not needed by archiving it:
Select the set with a long tap (or a right-click of your mouse), then tap/click on the 'Archive Set' command in the pop-up menu.
You can access sets that were added to the archive by ...
  • tapping/clicking on the button with two round arrows above the sets. (A pop-up menu appears with a checkmark next to the currently selected set collection.)
  • selecting 'Archived Sets' in the menu.

Custom Set Collections

The menu that allows you to switch between the 'Active Sets' and 'Archived Sets' (see above) is also used to manage the custom set collections.
Tap/click on the two round arrows above the sets and select 'Set Collection' from the pop-up menu.
A submenu appears:
To create a new (empty) collection tap/click on 'Create Collection' in the submenu and specify a name.
To add sets to the newly created collection tap/click on the plus icon next to 'Sets'. (See Sets to learn more.)
Note:
The submenu options to rename, duplicate and delete a collection are only active if a custom collection has already been selected.
The submenu offers two options to delete a collection:
  • 'Delete Collection' will only remove the selected custom collection's name (all of its sets remain in the 'Active Sets' collection).
  • 'Delete Collection & Sets' will irreversibly remove all of the sets of the selected custom collection.
With either delete option all songs will remain in the library of your catalog.
To move an existing set to an existing custom collection:
Select the set with a long tap (or a right-click of your mouse), then tap/click on the 'Move Set To...' command in the pop-up men.
A submenu appears with the existing custom collections:
Tap/Click on the desired custom collection in the submenu to move the set to this collection.
Note: This will remove the set from the original custom collection.
  • Tap/Click on 'Duplicate Set' before moving the set to keep the existing custom collection intact.

Quick-Select

Quick-select allows you to create setlists without using drag & drop. Quick-select can only be initiated when viewing sets, not when viewing the songs of a setlist.
Select the set with a long tap (or a right-click of your mouse) and choose 'Add Songs' from the pop-up menu.
Your song library view will appear in a checklist format:
  • Tap/Click on the circles to add check marks to the desired songs.
  • Tap/Click on the check mark icon at the top of the list to add the selected songs to the set. (To cancel quick-select instead tap/click on the minus sign to the right.)
You may use the search field to find specific songs while using quick-select.
Note: Song One will add already selected songs to a set before executing the search.

Play Button

A play button will appear whenever a song title is selected in the 'Library' or in the 'Setlist'.
Select a song in the 'Library' and tap/click on the play button to activate Song One's play mode.
The library panel will slide out to the left and the selected song will be scrolled in full screen mode with an optional backing audio track. (See play mode to learn more.)
Tap/Click on the inward pointing arrows to de-activate Song One's play mode and re-open the library panel.
When the play button of the 'Setlist' is tapped/clicked all songs following the selected song will be played in succession.

View Options

You have the option to show/hide the 'Library' or the 'Sets' of your song catalog. Tap/Click on the circle arrow icon at the top of the library panel and make the appropriate selection in the menu.
The same pop-up menu also provides options for searching and sorting the songs in the library. ('Search By' references the values entered into the song info section.)
