Temporary changes
#11
I suppose there would also be no time to add the song(s) to a special setlist? (for later review)

Also, isn't there a 'song history' feature somewhere in the app? I seem to recall a previous discussion about it, but maybe it was a feature request.

Yes! The 'Recent' tab.
You could clear it before every session, then you would at least have a short(er) list to review for changes 'the morning after'.

It seems to me that would be quicker (since it's automatic) than making a special temporary copy.
At least it could be a workaround for the time being...
I could be wrong, it happened once before.

Yes, the snippet feature comes close the what I had in mind with 'forking'.
Would it be possible, when creating a snippet, to pre-fill the current name in the 'Name' field? This makes it easy to edit the current name into a new name (e.g., Fancy Song becomes Fancy Song 2).
Or append " (Snippet)" to the title or something similar?

Sure, I can look into changing that.

I know that situation well. It's a session workflow. Preparing a song in different keys at home (having enough time) is easy
What I do is:
- I note the frequently used keys within the ChordPro file, usually in another subtitle
- I take care that the ChordPro file is in the most important key so that "Reset" helps in many cases
That does not solve the problem when a song is regularly used in more than one key.

The snippet tool looks like a good idea.
I can imagine a number of improvements:
- prefill "Name:" with the current song title as proposed would be great
  That would need an "X" button to delete that default name for the existing workflow of splitting a PDF into several songs
- access to the snippet tool could be faster, currently it needs many actions to get there, the "Quick Action Box" would be a perfect place.
  Merging the "Quick Action Box" and the "Floating Toolbar" into one, freely configurable UI element would be great. That would be worth another feature request.
- adding the new snippet to a specific group e.g. a collection "new snippets" or even configurable "jam session 2017-08-13" would help sorting out the next day which ones to keep and which ones to be discarded

I assigned a 'screen touch' action [bottom center] a long time back to access the snippet tool. This allows pretty quick use; select song, select transpose icon, transpose, touch bottom center, enter new [simple] id, enter pages if needed, ok. Then you can go back later to recent and find the new id's and do any editing required.

As I already mentioned in post #4 I also think the snippet tool is the way to go for Scirius' case.

It's probably obvious, but for this case the select "transpose icon, transpose" should come after creating the snippet in Skip's workflow IMO (in the invoked new snippet/copy). Otherwise you still have to reset the transpose in the original song.
