Software Description

PaperChord is a desktop publishing tool for guitar players. You can create chord-progression documents in standard notation on a staff and you can create easy readable chord diagrams in grid form.

PaperChord provides an easy readable open file format named OMNL. The Open Music Notation Language OMNL is a tag oriented paper description language similiar to HTML. It is an ascii text file that can be read on almost any computer. You can manipulate your documents with an text editor or even extend this language with your own tags and use it for own applications. OMNL is optimized for the internet, send your PaperChord documents by email or publish them on a Web Site or FTP Server.

This one is nice, though it is not optimized for the latest MacOS, meaning it crashes very often, may even produce files which crash or freeze the whole machine.
Handling is bad.
Since 1997 no corrections. No updates, which were promised before.
Not for prof use...


Hello this is all new to me. Please let me know if I can use paperchord on my HP palvilion computer? It seems like the program I need to write music for guitar and mandolyn. I down loaded the demo but can not get it to play. Is it for Mac only? please let me know.
