Songworks 4 allows easy entry of melodies, chord symbols, and lyrics - for anything from a simple song to a chorale or instrumental arrangement. It can even stimulate your musical imagination by suggesting tune and harmony ideas that are always new. Supports both standard notation and alternatives such as Shape Notes (both 5 and 7- shape systems, with shapes automatically chosen), stemless, stick, and x-head notation, all at any scaling, from tiny notes to large. In version 4 you can now edit music either in page or panorama view, and control over spacing between staff systems can vary as needed. Lyric text can be typed as a complete line of poetry - type a space or hyphen between syllables and the Songworks will line the syllables up with notes as needed. Chord symbols in Songworks are audible, playing with various accompaniment patterns to give you a better idea of how the chords work with a melody.
Enables "document launch" (clicking a Songworks file to launch the application and open that file); saves choice of keyboard type, animation, and labeling; allows moving rests with the up/down arrow tool, like notes; various tweaks and improvements.
