SongSelect Chords Not Available

You may run into an issue where you import a worship song from CCLI's SongSelect® but Music Stand says there are no chords available. You've checked the SongSelect® website and it clearly states that chords are available for this particular song. So, why is Music Stand not importing the chord chart into your setlist?

Well, SongSelect provides two different types of chord files: chord PDFs and ChordPro®. Music Stand imports data from the latter. While many SongSelect® songs have both chord types available on file, some only have the PDF, which explains why you're not getting the chord charts upon import.

For the songs that have the chord PDF but not ChordPro® in SongSelect®, Music Stand will provide an option to Import Chord Chart PDF from SongSelect under the Edit menu. Simply click that option and you'll then find that PDF under your "Custom Attachments" for the song. You can also follow the steps in our Adding Attachments article to manually upload chord charts and other song sheets from SongSelect or other sources.
