Projects / Gnometab


Gnometab aims to be a WYSIWYG guitar tablature editor. Its features include copying and pasting of tablature passages, a chord library (which the user must fill), the ability to create a variety of tablature symbols specific to the guitar, and clean-looking printed output. It does not attempt to be "smart", i.e. it does not know how many beats are in a measure, nor does it know an E chord from an Am chord. Instead, the emphasis has been on the appearance of the output.

    Release Notes: This release adds a default pointer tool and menu accelerators for all tools. It maintains a "Recent Files" list in the "File" menu. It uses libgnomeprint-2.2. The chord builder has been slightly overhauled, and chord builder objects now have a right-click popup menu, consistent with regular tab objects. Several pesky bugs have been exterminated.
