SongLeader - Live!

The real power of SongLeader is found when using it live for a live performance or worship set. It gives you the flexibilty to jump between songs, change key, add a new song or highlight repeats very easily. All of the followers will keep in step with the leader (unless you turn off automatic updating of course).

The software is designed to work well with keyboard, mouse and touchscreen so there are often multiple ways of doing things. The following table show how to operate aspects of the software using different modes.
