     Is there a way to copy and set of bars and then paste them further along in the song?  This would be a really useful feature if there isn't already a way to do it.

    Second, is there a way to transpose the key to something other than Songsmith decided was right for the vocal?  I realize I could go and change the chord in each bar but that would be rather tedious.

    Hi Homer, both are excellent questions/suggestions, and both are features we're considering for a potential future version.  In the short term, we're working on some simple external tools for Songsmith files that will let you do things like transpose all the chords.  That won't be quite as slick as doing it right in the app, but as you said, for a longer song, transposing everything by hand can be tedious and error-prone!
