There is the regular project notepad which is nice and works as it should.
I’ve acquired the habit of using it for typing lyrics for vocals which is just as good.
Now … trying to do both at the same time gives me extra work and it’s OK if it’s just a few times
Lately, I’ve tried to the project notepad and the track notepads for notes PLUS the project notepad for lyrics a little more and now it’s getting dirty!!!
It iS possible to build up your song and adding some notes, remove the notes to elsewhere and temporarily import lyrics and sing and record, then replace they lyrics with your notes again.
Is it smooth? Hell, NO!!!
Having a separate lyrics notepad would solve that especially if it could be exported/imported or even better linked to a *.txt file in the project folder.
Then you could work on your lyrics without even having to open Cubase and when you do you don’t have to update the lyrics because they’re already updated since they’re linked.
That would make me a happy camper!!!
While I’m at it It would also be great to have ALL notepads remember their zoom level so they don’t revert to the default tiny font size as soon as you close the note editor.
Is it tedious to zoom every time you edit something while trying to sing? Yes! Yes, it is tedious!
I stumbled on the text zoom by default btw. It’s CTRL+SHIFT+SCROLLWHEEL.
Anyways, a lyrics notepad would be brilliant!
