Setting the Default Track for a Song
Each song in the
Song Catalogue can have many tracks associated with it. However,
of these tracks can be marked as the "default" at any one time.
It is the default track that is used when building
presentation for use in the SlideGen
Viewer, and when performing a Quick
Show. To change the default track, you have three options:
- View the Track List for a Song, and
set the desired track as the default track by clicking the track and
then clicking the button "Set As Default"; or
- View the Track List for an Audio Collection, and click on the desired track, then click the button "Set As Default"; or
- Click on the
button above titled "Set All As Default".
all of the tracks within this collection as the default
track for the respective songs that they are attached to.
You can import your own audio tracks to use for any song. To do this, first go to the song in the Song Catalogue, then View the Track List for that Song, then click the "Import Custom Track" button.
After you have imported one or more custom tracks, an additional Audio Collection will show on the above tab, called "Imported Songs". This will allow you to view a list of all of the custom tracks that you have imported, set them as default (as per above), or delete them, etc.
