song location???

Asked by Ponnu on 2012-04-14

Hi,

I have been using OpenLP for about two months on windows 7.
I have added a number of songs to the songs library which I would like to transfer to another computer.
For this I am trying to find a library (folder) where all songs are stored, so that I can simply copy the files from one computer to another. But so far I could not find such a location.
Can somebody please educate me on how I can transfer songs from one system to another??
Would be a great help!!!
Thanks in advance

Hi Ponnu,

If you go to the Tools menu you will see an "Open Data Folder" option. This will open the folder which contains all the databases OpenLP uses. You can copy this folder between machines, but ensure OpenLP is not running before you copy the files.

Alternatively on the File menu there are Export and Import options which you can use to transfer songs.

Hope this helps,
Jonathan.
