Songs with multiple Keys: Leave as registered
#1
Hi,

Given a song in D that modulates to Am, it would be helpful to
enter both keys (as D, Am), but MobileSheets sorts the keys
alphabetically so the result is Am, D.

Is it possible to change this?

Yes, I believe I can modify the code to maintain the order of values that were selected. I'll work on that for the next update.

I worked on this for a bit and quickly came to the realization that I won't be able to support this. Most of the values benefit from being sorted alphabetically - it's really only the keys that don't. Unfortunately, due to the code being shared for everything, I can't easily handle keys differently. On top of that, the way I read data out of the database and associate songs with the groups doesn't lend itself to maintaining the original ordering of the selected values. I hope it's not too much of an inconvenience to have the keys sorted.

From a performance angle, surely you really only need to know the starting key? If a key change is needed (say, for a different vocalist) than the starting key is the one you pitch against.

There are some cases where more than one key is essential: e.g. "Dream A Little Dream Of Me" exists in two famous versions: Ella Fitzgerald + Louis Armstrong play it in C with the B section modulating to Ab,  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jC4cXzvXSq4
This version can be found in various fakebooks.
The Mamas & the Papas on the other hand play it also in C but the B section is in A !!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MWZfKcYlefE.
No dout that it's important which version to be picked for a setlist or a collection.

There are two workarounds to solve that:
1.) as for every other group you can add required key combinations to the list of keys by clicking the "+" button in the song editor window, see screenshots
2.) you can add the key to the end of the title field instead of using the "Keys" field of the library

I have something similar with capo settings. I currently use the Custom2 field for this, but it would be nice if there were a %CAPO% field...

That would be my solution - in fact, I include the key in all my titles.

Would adding "Capo' to the key drop down then selecting both capo and the key during the edit procedure work?

@Skip, I'm not sure I fully understand.

Additions can be made to the 'keys' popup when in the edit songs function [the +]. You could add 'Capo x' there and select it along with the key as you do the editing.

Ah, I see. Interesting suggestion. Unfortunately it doesn't track changing the capo using the text display settings dialog.

My turn for incomplete understanding. Smile " track changing the capo using the text display settings dialog."?

When viewing a ChordPro song, I can change the capo settings (and transpose the chords) using the text display settings dialog. It is this *actual* capo setting that I want included in the summary (and, see some other thread, in annotations).

I can add support for %CAPO% in the song title formatting but I'm running out of room for buttons so it will just be something that you will have to know to type (and I'll include something in the manual).

No problem for me, thanks!
Also, there has been a lot of discussing how to handle %XXX% items in titles w.r.t. supressing separators and such. Do you have a short writeup how you finally implemented it?
