Render Ahead/Behind

When swiping through songs in a set, OnSong will render songs just before and after the current song. This results in smooth swiping through songs, but may also increase the memory overhead of the song viewer since it is drawing multiple songs at once. For performance reasons, you may wish to alter this behavior. Options include:

  • Automatic allows OnSong to determine what is best. Normally this is turned on unless file formats dictate that it should be disabled for the current set. Default.
  • Off results in only the current song being rendered. This results in swiping to blank pages but can improve performance when using external files that are not optimized for OnSong.
  • On results in song pages before and after the current song page to be rendered and never disabled.

Show Scroll Indicators

OnSong features multiple scrollable panes to display a set. The first is a horizontal scrollable pane which provides access to songs in a set. The second is the scrollable pane that contains each song. By default, the scroll indicators on the right side of a scrollview are disabled, but you can enable them through this setting.

View Files as PDF

OnSong will automatically convert non-text imported file types to PDF files to maximize compatibility and to remove operating specific rendering issues that may occur. This setting is on by default and also allows other file types to be viewed in Low Light Mode as well as in a browser running OnSong Console. Turning this off will display these file types "as-is" using the operating system web-based renderer.
