				Update - new layout
				
					The new layout module is now online. This means better formatted
songs for everybody!There is a major change in how the songs and the
chords are written in html. I wont go into technical details here, but
this will solve a lot of my unresolved bugs.* The old layout made it
impossible to copy into another program (like Word). This is now
possible!* The old layout had some issues on multipage songs. Some
chords lines just disappeared. This is really an Internet Explorer bug
that I was unable to solve. The new layout fixes this indirectly.And
the new layout also introduces a few extra features:* Scaling of just
the text/chords. Nobody wants to scale the Chordie logo - they want
big text. Please give feedback about the increment levels. You can
access this from the keyboard with accesskey+"+" and
accesskey+"-".* Auto-scrolling. A much requested feature.
You can adjust the speed by pressing accesskey+#. In Internet Explorer
that means alt+2 to make it scroll slowly. Firefox uses alt+shift+2. I
am not sure about the speed defaults here. Please give feedback.* Two
column compact view. This replaces the old full screen view.* View
lyrics only or chords only. Mainly for practice.* A print preview
feature. This is one of my favorites. It lets you move the grids
around and adjust the font size. It even gives you an indicator of
whether you have been able to squeeze the song onto one page. I have
done a bit testing myself, but I will need help from you. Please
report any bugs related to the new features. I am especially
interested in getting feedback from people using various combinations
of OS/browsers (Linux, Mac, Safari, Opera etc). Please also look for
any new bugs in forum song display and the songbook. These will
automatically use the new layout module, but I have not had very much
time testing them.

				 Re: Update - new layout
				
					I think I might have found a bug.  To use the new print
feature, it automatically reverts back to the original song.  I
have quite a few that I've transposed to other keys for ease of
singing, and when I print them, they only print in the original
key.  I can still use the print command from Internet explorer,
but I automatically puts the guitar grids on.  Other than that,
it looks great!

				 Re: Update - new layout
				
					Here's a print bug...Whenever a song has a quote symbol ( "
) the song will print everything up to the symbol and not beyond.For
example, in John Mellencamp's "Pink Houses" the print
feature will print everything up to:[And he looks at her and says,]
but, because there's a quote symbol after the word "says,"
nothing prints beyond it.Specs:iMac  OS X.4.10Firefox browsersc

				 Re: Update - new layout
				
					There are a couple of things that I notice in the new layout that
are not working. (At least for me ). * Songs seem to get cut off when
printing if quotes are contained in the song. As in this
link.http://www.chordie.com/chord.pere/getso … Son.chopro*
Unable to add songs to personal songbook due to text overflow down the
right hand side. As in this
link.http://www.chordie.com/chord.pere/www.g … /4372.htmlFYI, I
am using Suse Linux 10.1 and Firefox 2.006. But I have also checked
these pages with WinXP and IE 6. Both os's and browsers display the
same results.Steve

the overflow of stuff down the right-hand side, but could be related
to a plug-in (ie. Adblock Plus).  Suggest disabling it to see if
that rectifies the problem.I find that {soc} & {eoc} is not
working like before, anyone else having this problem?Regards,Jock.

					Hey,Um, whenever I use the print feature, there's a massive gap
just before the song, and then when it gets to the "A4 page
here" mark, it completely cuts off the song.I'm running Safari
2.0.4 on Mac OS X 10.4.9.This may be my computer however.Jikklop

and - ideally - send a screenshot of the error to admin@chordie.com.

					Jock said: "I find that {soc} & {eoc} is not working

seems that once you do a {soc} it will never revert to standard verse
formatting, everything stays indented and italisized...almost as if
the {eoc} is having no effect.Is that what's happening to you Jock?

				 Re: Update - new layout
				
					More issues that might be related (sorry Per)....all of which
appear to be related to spacing.First, if I have the chord notation
directly following the word, then a space, then the next word in the
editor (word[B] next words), the space does not show in the edited
text, but does show if I do it word space chord word (word [B]next
words)Also there appears to be issues with leaving blank lines, as in,
the program doesn't want to do it.I've only checked a few of the songs
in my songhbooks, but these issues seem to be consistant.That being
said, the auto-scroll is kick ass and where has that been all my
life!Hang in there Per...what was already a great site just keeps
getting better!Tunedeaf

				 Re: Update - new layout
				
					No point in apologizing for posting bugs, tunedeaf. The reason I
am not fixing these bugs are mainly because I do not know about them.
The most important tribute you can make to the site is telling me what
is wrong.So for the update:* {eoc} not working - fixed* {eob} not
working - fixed* right hand side text overflow/unable to add song to
songbook - fixed* print preview empty (related to above problem) -
fixed* spacing problems "word[B] word" - fixed* new line
problem - fixed* Mac-Safari-problem. I am crossing my finger that some
of these bug fixes will automagically fix this problem as well. Please
report. Unfortunately I will not be able to verify this myself the
next couple of days.Please give me feedback about whether or not this
really fixed the problems.
