Thread: S & N over chords (small/normal chord-font)

  1. #1

    Question S & N over chords (small/normal chord-font)

    I've only just started really delving into this. While editing a chart I saw S & N over some chords but not while playing the chart. I tried to search the forums and I'm sure the answer is here but can't find it. I haven't been able to figure out what it actually does to the music. I think I've discovered how to put my own S's & N's over chords but what is it and why would I want to do it?

    By using S and N in the editor (small/normal) chords can be made more readable in crowded measures. Remember, each N or S applies to all subsequent chords in the chart. When you use S to make a couple of adjacent chords fit better, please use N on the next chord to reset the rest of the chart.

    Because many users have small-screen devices, it's always best to use the small chord-font only when neccessary for readability.

    Default Thanks

    Aha yes I have made some charts that are quite ugly because they have chord changes on beat 4. This will make them prettier. Thanks! I'll share them all with the world when I have completely mastered this editor!!
