peter Export as PDF is the answer to all your questions.
How is that the answer?
I am very happy with synced lyrics and the programming of them and the ability to add chords and if I change key the chords auto change for me , the synced line lyrics give me a very good idea to where I am in the song and I can have it all very large on screen to see at a great distance , I can simply cut and paste in the lyrics from anywhere and I don’t need a PDF software to create the file I need , I could keep going on with the positives of the new system , PDF is an old way of doing things in a new computer world, but it does some things the new system can’t do which I don’t need .
What I was hoping for is a simple way to export my song lyrics having a choice, either without timecodes and just lyrics and chords, or no chords either , just lyrics , the reason is so i can quickly just save my lyrics only , so I can easily reuse them for other purposes, partly paste them in to another medley song , at the moment once you have created a full on song and contaminated it with timecodes and chords you are stuck with it you can’t really reuse the lyrics easily .
I suggest when you add data of any kind you should be able to temporarily clear it so you can export the lyrics file with only lyrics and chords, and if you temporarily clear the chords you should then be able to export the lyrics only, in other words whatever you program either data, chords or lyrics everything is always remembered by the song and to get rid of anything permanently you choose the selection and delete it, but you have an option to just deal with one particular item on its own , and whatever your choices are or the three options you simply disable the ones you don’t need to export the exact requirement.
This then allows us to be able to use the existing data to create new songs or perhaps other purposes without loosing the original setup in text editor of that song.
At the moment we are stuck with having to remove the chords one by one or having to save the full text file then remove the timecode than do another save without the timecode , than having to import the full text file that has all the data again as we did not want to loose or change anything we simply wanted the lyrics only or perhaps lyrics with chords only so we can reuse them in another song or many other reasons.
You rearrange your song in a Daw and bring it back with the same name it gets replaced now all text and timecodes are wrong you should be able to simply cut, delete and pate your old text data to quickly suit the audio edit because you can leave text and chords turned on turn off the timecode do your edits then turn off the text and chords and leave the timecodes that are still ok but delete the ones that are wrong and then simply timestamp the area of song that needs to be redone.
You have not completely wasted all your previous work when it comes to time coding and chord entering.
Sorry to be so long again but I wanted you to fully understand what I was trying to achieve, which is a much faster work flow that does not limit us.
