songwriter subtitle not displaying

Post by Scottbr1 » Thu Aug 21, 2014 4:30 pm

When I create a new document with the Wizard, I enter a subtitle but it doesn't display on the page. I'm using SongWriter 2010 and a Mac OSX 10.6.8
Thanks for your help.

Is there a "subtitle" field on the template you're using? The wizard setup fields are linked to the text fields on the document.

You can always add the subtitle as as regular text field.

There is a field for the subtitle on the template. I fill in the field, but it doesn't show up on the document. Right now I am typing the title then hitting RETURN to add the subtitle on the second line. It works, but I would prefer having the subtitle a smaller font similar to the name of the composer.

I'm away from my computer. Send the template you're using to me at wawoodman at aol dot com, and I'll check it out later today.

Subtitle is a Text Insert which appears only when you choose it within an active Text Block. (At least, that's how it works in Finale.)

I think we have it solved. He was setting up a document from the Wizard. Even though the text slug for subtitle was there, it wasn't linked to the File Info (as near as I can tell.)

Let's see if he does better now, with the correct template.
