Notation and lyricsChords and marks ► Adding chord symbols

SONAR stores its library of chords in the file Chords.liw. The chords in the library are sorted into groups. You can add and remove chords from the library, create new groups (i.e., for alternative guitar tunings), and add chords from a different library file.
You edit chords in the Chord Properties dialog box. Chord properties are shown in the following table.
The Chord Properties dialog box also lets you draw guitar chord grids and manage the chord library.
You can suppress the display of all guitar chord diagrams by deselecting the Show Chord Grids option in the Staff view's Layout dialog box. With this option disabled, only chord text appears.
