Navigation

The lyrics is made of lines; one line corresponds to one page. Each line holds a set of karaoke syllables, small phonetic units attached to notes. Lines are separated by line breaks.

To navigate or select notes:

  • Select a note in the note sheet.
  • Select a syllable in the lyrics area. The full line is shown.
  • Use cursor keys to move through lines (up, down) and syllables (left, right).
  • You can jump to the first or last syllable in the line (Home/End) or lyrics (Ctrl-Home/End).
  • Select multiple notes by dragging ranges (button 1) or rectangles (button 2), or by pressing Shift-Up/Down.
  • Selections can span multiple lines.
  • Select the entire line with Ctrl-A, or double-click it, or click its line number.
  • Type a line number to jump to a specific line.

By default, you select notes by clicking. Hover selections (‘mouse-over’) can be activated in the preferences.

Zoom

Selections always result in a full-line zoom. If you want to scroll the timeline smoothly without triggering a zoom, drag the background above/below the note sheet.

To modify the line range that is zoomed to:

  • Select multiple syllables.
  • Drag the line numbers in the lyrics area.
  • Press Page-Down/Up to increase/decrease the number of pages shown
  • Press Ctrl-PageDown/Up to zoom to one page / all pages.

Icons: Increase #pages,  Zoom to one page

In single-line zoom baselines for all lines are aligned to one level. This fits each line vertically into the view. When you want to compare absolute note heights, switch to a multi-line range (or press L in single-line view).
