Working with Libraries

Managing a score’s setlist and library membership

The “setlists” tab in the metadata panel lets you quickly manage which setlists the current score is a part of. Tap a setlist to add the current score to it (a blue checkbox will appear) and tap it again to remove it. If you have multiple libraries set up, a similar “libraries” panel lets you manage library membership in the same manner.

Adding files to a specific Library

To import new scores to an existing library, use the following steps:

  • From the Libraries menu, tap to select a library you’d like to use. The Libraries menu should close and return to the main score menu showing only the selected library.
  • Add the files via iTunes, email, or Dropbox and they will be imported into the currently selected library by default.

Moving scores between libraries

You can reassign scores to different libraries or designate multiple libraries for a particular score through the metadata panel:

  • From the Libraries menu, tap All Libraries to select it
  • Tap the Close button in the upper left corner to return to the scores menu and navigate to a sub-view that contains the scores you’d like to move
  • Tap the Edit button in the upper right corner of the scores menu, then select the scores you’d like to modify
  • Tap the Edit button that appears in the contextual options at the top of the list to open a Batch Metadata panel
  • Choose the Libraries view toward the bottom of the panel
  • Tap to select or deselect libraries in the list
  • Tap the back arrow in the upper left corner of the metadata panel to save the changes.

Moving setlists between libraries

With forScore 10 or later, use these instructions to manage a single setlist’s library membership:

  • Open the main setlist menu and tap the circled “i” button next to the setlist you want to edit
  • Tap to select a library from the list and a check mark will appear next to it
  • The app will prompt you to move all associated files from that setlist to the corresponding library if applicable
  • Tap the back arrow to return to the setlist menu

If you want to edit multiple setlists at once, or if you’re using forScore 9 or earlier, use these instructions:

  • Open the main setlist menu and tap Edit in the upper right corner
  • Tap to select one or more setlists, then tap the Edit option that appears at the top of the menu
  • Tap to select a library from the list and a check mark will appear next to it
  • The app will prompt you to move all associated files from that setlist to the corresponding library if applicable
  • Tap the back arrow to return to the setlist menu

Creating a new library

Use these steps to create a new library in forScore:

  • Open the Scores menu and tap the Library button in the upper left corner (tap back to navigate to the root menu if needed)
  • Tap the + button to add a new library, then give the library a name
  • If you’d like to reorder your libraries, drag the three lines to the right of each item up or down
  • Tap a library to select it and make it active
  • Tap the Close button to return to the scores menu where you can view the files associated with that library

Any scores you add to forScore are automatically added to the current library, but since your new library is empty right now there won’t be much to look at. Return to the libraries list and select “All Libraries” to browse for the scores you’d like to use. In the metadata panel, choose the “libraries” tab and tap the name of your new library to place a checkmark next to it. This works while batch editing, too, so you can add multiple scores to a library quickly and easily.
