How to enter a guitar chord symbol

Getting Started   Tutorials  Manual  MIDI and Audio

Click on the symbols button twice in the object type palette and then click on the Miscellaneous symbols button in the symbols palette. Choose the tablature chord symbol (to the right of the tempo symbol). Select the pencil tool in the toolbar and enter the tablature chord symbol by clicking the mouse where you want the symbol to appear.

When you enter a tablature chord symbol, the Tablature Chords dialog appears.

Make your tablature chord by selecting a chord from the list box at the top left of the dialog. Choose a starting fret number from the drop-down list box under the chord list box. Choose whether your tablature chord will have four or five frets by selecting 4 Frets or 5 Frets in the box below the fret number drop-down list box. Choose to show or not show the name of the chord above the tablature chord grid by checking or unchecking the Show Chord Name box. The name that first appears is the name of the chord that you selected from the chord name list box. You can change this by clicking on the Set Chord Name button. This will bring up the Chord Name dialog.

You can set the circles on the tablature chord frets yourself by clicking on the preview grid wherever you want to put in a circle. You can only have one circle on any vertical line so entering a new circle on a vertical line will erase the old one. Circles entered at the nut will be open. Other circles will be closed. You can erase a circle by clicking on it.
