(This feature is available only in the «Classic» and «Maestro» version).

Tools for working with chords are located on the  panel. Chords are added at the cursor position in the score.

First choose the root note of the chord to add – , flat (bemol)  or sharp(diesis) , and optionally specify whether it will be a major  or minor  chord.

The  buttons assign the 5th to 13th notes of the chord to be played. Flats (bemol) or sharps (diesis) for the 5th, 7th, 9th, 11th or 13th notes are set using the .. buttons.

To delete a chord, first select it in the score and then press the  button on the left side of the chords panel.

The right panel has template buttons for the most common musical chords (template  – major,  – seventh, etc.). To use templates, press the root note of a chord and then the template button.

You can also create your own chords templates. Create a chord (2 notes or more) on the staff as usual. Select all the notes of the chord and save it using the  button on the  panel or from the main menu («Templates» | «Chords» | «Save»). Chords thus saved will appear on the  panel. If the full list of chord patterns exceeds the size of the chords panel, you can view them all by pressing the «All chords» button on the  panel. Any chords you choose will be added to the beginning of the list on the  panel.

To save chords you have created to a file, choose «Templates» | «Chords» | «Save» from the main menu.

To add a saved chord to a score from a file, choose «Templates» | «Chords» | «Add» from the main menu.
