Is there a way to enable line wrap on songs?  Just about every song we import needs to be edited to accommodate for long lines in songs.

There is not currently a line wrap feature in Proclaim. You can force a wrap by pressing enter at a point in the line and it will place the succeeding words on a second line. However, you can request this feature on our UserVoice.

Jeremiah - I am a great fan of the lack of word wrap especially in songs.

The potential for automatic line break wrecking the phrasing of songs is huge and I have even been caught out by automatic line breaks creating embarrassing single lines.

Poetry needs to be phrased and to look right on the screen. If the original writers phrasing cannot be honoured then hand editing is by far the best option.

Don't forget that once you have a song saved the way you like it you do not need to do the work again if you use the 'Reuse Items' section when adding songs.
