Feature Request: Tie songs together

at our church we often have a few songs that will transition into another song so it would be nice if we could have more than one song in the live list at a time.


  • Hi Chris, do you know of any other worship software that does this? I'd like to see an example.

    Alternatively, have you tried just setting your Service Item Slide Limits? https://manual.openlp.org/configure.html#service-item-slide-limits

    I could not give you an example unfortunately as I've only used OpenLP & Open Song, it was just an idea that had popped into my head. it would be nice to be able to attach two songs (so the copyright info & everything is separate) but so i could quickly switch and control what slide i switch to, i do not understand the slide limits thing unfortunately or i would try it. currently i would use the service manager to do this but would have to go into "Black Screen" or "theme only" mode to do this incase the wrong part of the song popped up.
  • Hi Chris,

    At our church, we configure the song order ahead of time for precisely this reason.  Put your songs in the Service Manager in the order you want them to appear.  Next, right-click on the song and choose Edit Item.  At the bottom of the Song Editor window is a label that says Verse Order.  This is where you define how OpenLP will display a song.  For a classical hymn, the order might go something like V1 C1 V2 C1 V3 C1 V4 C1, where C1 is the Chorus and V# is the verse.  That way you can ensure that the first slide (and all following) are correct.  You get the slide abbreviations, by the way, from the Lyrics section just above the Verse Order.  It's the part of the left-hand column of the lyrics list.
