Re: 3/4 Chord Entry and the Notation Window

Thanks for your response. It appears that this is one of those unfortunate cases where it is not 'user error,' but a funky shortcoming of the program ... actually worse than the inability to place chord changes on half-beats.
I did try starting a new song with a waltz style already selected and it does seem that the placement of the bespoke chords over the bar is roughly proportional with the first chord sitting on the bar division instead of the beat stroke and the other two in thirds across the bar ... but I am still not sure it displays this way if there is only a single entry in each half-bar cell..
Also, the chord settings dialog box continues to show four beats; and you can add a chord to the 4th beat and it will display in the chord entry window, but it doesn't play.
I'd call it a confusing mess ... but I guess now that I think I have it figured out I won't worry anymore. Pity the poor newbie.
