Chord library for easy chord insertion

I find it odd that you define chords by first marking the notes on the tablature, then selecting the chord tool which forces you to confirm the name of the notes you just added to get the chord name and/or diagram to display. You have to repeat this process in each measure even if you've already defined what the chord is. Very time-consuming.

It would be nice if the chord diagrams you've added to a song could be clicked on and they would automatically insert into the current division. I've also found that sometimes the chord diagrams do not display even when selecting display chord diagram.

Finally, a common-library of chords should be available that you could select from to add to the song. Why make folks define what an E-chord is over-and-over. Your system already can recognize them as such anyway.

    I agree, this is an area where the app needs some improvement. I've been planning on adding a chord library to the app for a while now, but I haven't had time to get around to it yet. This is one of the first new features I want to get to after finishing the 2.0 update that I'm currently working on.

    In the mean time, copying and pasting can be an effective way of repeating chord labels without needing to repeatedly re-enter the chord data. Apologies for the inconvenience!
