Importing Songs from an XML File

To avoid having to enter songs manually, songs can be imported from an XML File.  An XML File is simply a text file that contains one or more songs in a standard layout.  The XML File will probably have come from one of two sources:

To import an XML File, select File | Import Folder from the main menu on the main window.  You will then be presented with a standard Windows "File Open" dialog.  Browse to the XML File that you wish to import, and then click Open.

Some XML Files are available for import directly from the External Folders tab on the
main window.  These are official collections of songs provided for you by SlideGen, or via a special arrangement with a third party (e.g. the Seventh-day Adventist Hymnal)

Re-importing an XML File

If you wish to import an XML File that you have previously imported - maybe because there are new or updated songs in the file - do NOT delete the existing folder before re-importing.  If you delete the folder then you will lose all copyright management history associated with the deleted songs.  Instead, you should just re-import the file.  Any existing songs will be automatically updated, and any new songs will be added.
