User Manual


When OnSong encounters a chorus, it can display the chorus different from other sections. OnSong can detect a chorus in the song content if it has been labeled as a Chorus in either English, or the set language of OnSong. Keep in mind that if you are using a named section that the chorus section will continue until another named section is encountered.

In addition, the ChordPro syntax can be used to denote a chorus section. These include the short versions soc and eoc tags or the longer versions, start_of_chorus and end_of_chorus tags.

You can alter how chorus sections appear with the following settings:

Bold Chorus

When enabled, the entire content of the chorus is outputted in a bold version of the selected font. Default is off.

Indent Chorus

This option will indent the chorus from the other sections. Options include 0" to 1-1/2" in 1/8" or 1/4" increments. Default is 0".

Hide Chorus Label

When using ChordPro tags to indicate a chorus, OnSong automatically adds the "Chorus:" section label to the output. If you would like to not show this text, turn this option on. Default is off.
