Song Usage Exporting Error

OpenLP version: 2.4.x
OS: MacOS 10.14.4

When I try to export our song usage I get this error, some help with this would be appreciated. as this document will help with making reporting faster. thankfully we keep a paper report aswelll. the error description is as follows
Traceback (most recent call last):  File "/Applications/", line 226, in on_song_usage_report    self.song_usage_detail_form.initialise()  File "openlp/plugins/songusage/forms/", line 58, in initialiseTypeError: setSelectedDate(self, Union[QDate,]): argument 1 has unexpected type 'str'

Thanks for the help

    Hey Chris,

    Yep, we know about that error. Try this, it might help.

    1. Copy and paste this as "openlp-songusage.conf":

    2. In OpenLP, go to File -> Import -> Settings and select this file. Say "yes" to overwrite. It should only overwrite these specific values.

    3. Now try exporting your song usage again.

    Let me know if it works.
  • Hi Raoul, Sorry for the very delayed responce, as i sent this on a weekend that I was home from college, now that I'm home full time again I got time to test this, however when I go to import settings OpenLP just freezes up on me (I waited 10 minutes). This happens just after i hit 'yes' on the warning about importing settings.
  • I got it to work after a few tries it seems that if i select "Show Desktop" before trying to import it does not freeze, however when i imported the file it did not work, i am still getting the error when trying to export.
