Singers / Groups Missing from artist in edit songs

I\'ve been trying to update titles and artists and karaoke brand since purchasing SongbookDB. I\'ve noticed some of the more up to date artists are not included e.g. marshmello, clean bandit, meghan trainor to name a few. I know I can add the artist and have been doing so but it does not get added to the database. So I have to type it again in full every time. Can I add these myself somehow?

Re: Singers / Groups Missing from artist in edit songs

Yes they stopped adding the new artist to the bucket database some years ago.

You can make them appear in the editing and import dialogs but it makes the editing dialog take forever to open before you can use it.

If you open the Tools/Songs Database dialog at the bottom of that window is a tick box marked (Include Artist & Song titles from songs database) Ticking that should throw up a warning window regarding the time factor.

If you have a lot of editing to do it can be of help but not if you just want to edit the odd song.

It can take anything from 1.5 to 3.5 minutes to open the edit dialog depending on how many songs you have and how fast your computer is, if you get impatient waiting and click other buttons it can go into not responding mode.

Hope that helps.
