Metadata from text file
#1
Hi All, 

I am brand new and need some help. I have hundreds of txt files I would like to import. From what I have read and tried the only Metadata the app can automatically read from the file itself is the title of the song. Is that true? Is there a way to set it up the app or the txt file so the app can read and save other info auelike composer and key? The files are all in one folder not seperate ones.
Thank you, 
Paltiel

Hello Paltiel,

If you are using text files instead of chord pro, "Artist:" and "Title:" are the only two metadata fields recognized. If you need support for additional fields, I might suggest converting to chord pro.

Thank you for replying. That is all I need . I have imported text files but only the song name is grabbed.  How do I set it up the text file so it grabs that info? I have attached a text file to show how all mine are set up.
Thanks

Just in case you want to switch to ChordPro: SongPress https://www.skeed.it/songpress does a good job in converting songs automatically
