Changing the Name of a Dance

(Updated 2017-10; BallroomDJ version 3.15.5)

In some cases you may want to change the name of a dance. Some of the dance names are quite long and use up a lot of space on the marquee.

First, go to the Edit Dances configuration and add the dance with the new name. (For this example, 'West Coast Swing' will be changed to 'WCS'). Copy the settings from the old dance name. Do not delete the old dance name at this time.

In the music manager, select the old dance name, then select the Filter button. Select all songs using the checkbox in the heading line, then select the Edit button.

In the song editor, select the Edit All button. Select the new dance name, then select Save All. Exit the song editor.

In the music manager, select the new dance name and select the Filter button to verify your changes.

Go back to the Edit Dances configuration, select the old dance name and select the Delete button.
