Text Output

The text file output desination is a text (.txt) file. Text files can be viewed and edited in a simple text editor like Notepad, and can be imported into any word processor.

The text destination really works something like a ChordPro to CRD (*.crd) converter. CRD files are common, make some sense, and can be found easily on the Internet.

The main disadvantage of a CRD file is that it relies on a fixed-width font to display properly; additionally, if the chords change quickly, song lyrics may need to be greatly spaced out.

Here is a sample of the text (CRD) output:

Twinkle Twinkle
Little Star

C                 F
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
F     C      G7       C
How I wonder what you are!
C   F        C        G7
Up above the world so high,
C      F       C      G7
Like a diamond in the sky.

Note: When chords are too close together to be distinguished, Songsheet Generator will space out the chords, which may cause them to be misaligned with the lyric below. The printer output destination will space out the lyrics and add a hypen when a word must be broken apart.
