Option to add entire PDF as an additional "Song"
It appears that many users manually add a line to their CSV files to create a separate "Song" for the entire PDF. Here's an example from a file ItsMe has shared [the (complete) line]:

Title;Pages;Keys;Genres;Collections;Source Types;Albums
~Kinder wollen singen (complete);1-68;;;;Fakebook;Kinder wollen singen
~Kinder wollen singen – TOC;4-5;;;;TOC;Kinder wollen singen
Alle meine Entchen;6;D;;Volkslieder;LS;Kinder wollen singen

Obviously, this is likely to have been a manual edit to the CSV as the usual song database would not have an entry for the whole book and would not automatically create one. In order to avoid this extra step, my suggestion is that upon CSV Import, the user be prompted with something like "In addition to the individual songs, would you like to create a separate "Song" that incorporates the entire PDF?" Folks like ItsMe could easily say "No, I'm covered" while the rest of us might really appreciate it. At that point, I'm presuming that MSP already knows the name of the PDF and its total range of pages, so would have all it needs to create automatically (and usefully) what otherwise requires a manual edit of the CSV file.

Thanks for listening.
