User Manual

Song Editor

The song editor allows you to make changes to text-based chord charts. This screen features the following user interface components to help you create and edit your chord charts:

The menubar contains tools for helping you edit your chord chart. In addition, you can save your changes by tapping on the Done button, or discard any changes you've made using the Cancel button.

Text Editor

The majority of the screen is consumed by the text editor. This displays the content of your song file for editing. Tap into the text editor to make changes using the on-screen keyboard and quick chord bar.

Quick Chord Bar

The quick chord bar appears above the keyboard and provides buttons to quickly insert chords or symbols into your chord chart.

On-Screen Keyboard

When the cursor is placed into the text editor, the on-screen keyboard appears. This section will discuss intricacies of the on-screen keyboard you may find helpful.

Compact Mode

When using the Song Editor on a smaller device, the interface is condensed to offer the full power of the song editor on a handheld device.

Note that the conversion toolbar is no longer part of the song editor. You can extract text and convert file formats using context menus within the Attachments Menu.

The on-screen keyboard and arrow keys are not visible when editing on a device without multitouch such as a Mac.
