User Manual


Monospaced fonts may be used when tablature is found in the chord chart. You can denote tablature using the ChordPro start_of_tab and end_of_tab tags, or the shortened version with sot and eot tags. Tablature sections of your chord chart should be surrounded with these tags, placing each tag on its own line. Tablature sections are outputted in a monospaced font to maintain alignment of the characters.

Option for changing the appearance of monospaced sections include:

Detect Chords

Determines if chords that are contained within ChordPro start_of_tab (sot) and end_of_tab (eot) should be detected and displayed accordingly.

Font Family

Allows you to change the font that is used when outputting tablature in monospaced fonts. Options include:

  • Andale Mono
  • Courier Default.
  • Courier New
  • Lucida Console


Instead of making all monospaced fonts in tablature a common size, OnSong provides a scale for the font. This allows the size of the tablature to be adjusted along with the chords and lyrics sizes. Options include values between 30% and 130% in 10% increments. Default is 100% of the size of the chord font size.
