Editing Lyrics

You can enter or edit lyrics to be used for the Planning Center Projector App from within the app itself or on the Planning Center website from the Lyrics & Chords box. This lesson will show you how to edit Lyrics in the app.

Tap the Lyric Options icon

The Lyrics Options icon is only available for song items. If you don't see this button, most likely you have added a regular item and not a song item.

Section headings (Chorus, Verse, etc.) will not be included in your slides. Since chord chart and lyric PDFs are generated from this same source, there are many other special codes you can use to include text in Lyric PDFs, or transpose chords for Chord Chart PDFs, and have that excluded from slides. Check out this lesson on Transposing Chord Charts and making Lyrics PDFs or this lesson on the Special Codes for Lyrics, Chords & Slides.

Click Save at the upper right when you are done

Lyrics Are Updated & Slides Regenerated

Planning Center sends the new Lyrics to our servers, the server strips out any of the section heading or special codes and then sends it back to Projector as new slides.
