  4. The best way for saving time is to copy & paste all the lyrics in one time from a document or from a website
    LiveEdit will automatically remove all the empty lines and unneeded spaces.

  5. Next step is the insertion of the lyrics on the timeline. For proceeding you have two options :
    • Click on the In & Out button on the window (old fashion way !!!)
    • Use the I & O keys on your keyboard (very very much easier !)

  6. Simply press "play" and insert the lyrics on the fly.
