In the following table are my song books typed in Ami Pro 3.0, but there is a plain
text version too. In addition there are two Ami Pro macros. Both correct chords in
songs and automatically turns chord numbers to superscript. The first one for Ami Pro text
and the second one for HTML document. I've used the second macro to prepare songs on this
|AmiPro 3.0||21ps01.zip||95 kB||The first part|
|T602||21ps01602.zip||65 kB||The first part|
|ASCII||21ps01txt.zip||65 kB||The first part as plain text|
|AmiPro 3.0||21ps02.zip||82 kB||The second part|
|T602||21ps02602.zip||69 kB||The second part|
|ASCII||21ps02txt.zip||68 kB||The second part as plain text|
|AmiPro 3.0||21ps03.zip||82 kB||The third part|
|T602||21ps03602.zip||69 kB||The third part|
|ASCII||21ps03txt.zip||68 kB||The third part as plain text|
|AmiPro macros||akordmac.zip||4 kB||Macros for correction of chord names in text and HTML document.|
My songbooks are tied by a spiral. The only disadvantage of this is that it is not possible to change pages. But it is very easy to turn pages and it is possible to fold all songbook on any page. This type of binding is more durable than other ones.
Next lines are dedicated to those people who are publishing on the internet
songs writen in M$ Word and by a proportional font. After an export, which
is an adventure by itself, is a desired song corrupted and chords are
completely out of the text of song.
My songbook document stile consists of three paragraph styles.
The first one is Nazev pisne. Font Times New Roman CE size 14. Used for a name of song. The second one is Zakladni text. Font Courier New CE size 10. Used for the text of song. The third one is Akordy. Font Courier New CE size 10 and bold. The spacing behind this style is a bit reduced to force chords closer to the text of song.
No pictures or similar nonsense in addition. Font Courier New CE is a bit "ugly" but it is not proportional. If a song is written using a font with all same size literals there is clear chord possition against song text. You can compare these two ways of song creating.
