That works better. I have tried to put up boxes and tabsheets but it gets all mixed up and out of line. How do I get it in line like you have above? I'm struggling with that, I have some songs I'd like to put up but till I know the correct way they won't look right.

Thanks...

Let's try this. I normally start with a blank tab scale like this:

E-----------------------------------------------------------
B-----------------------------------------------------------
G-----------------------------------------------------------
D-----------------------------------------------------------
A-----------------------------------------------------------
E-----------------------------------------------------------

Then, when editing, make sure that I'm in overwrite mode, not insert.

If you "quote" this entry, then you can copy my scale.

Let me know how that works.

So that is me now quoting you. So you just start by typing out that tab sheet such as the one above?

Well, the reason I said to quote me was so that you could copy the tab scale into your own message. Actually, I would copy it to a notepad doc on your machine, then just use that going forward.

Right I see, thats where I sort of get lost! I don't quite know how to that. I can type out a tab chart like that one above but when I write in the numbers and symbols within it, it goes out of line and dosen't make much sense! I will keep working on it. thanks.

This probably won't help much and maybe the changes they've made will correct this but I continually check with "preview" to see that the tab lines up before submitting. It's a hassle but I try to keep my tab to a minimum anyway.
