Lyrics/Notes Text Track

Please please please can a text track be introduced? Just like the arranger track but you can enter text in the box that can snap in place, for instance using the TAB. It would be so useful for lyrics and “to do” notes.

For example I create a box just like in the arranger track, but I can enter text inside. And every time I press the TAB during typing, I little dot can appear like in the automation, which I can then use to snap the text as I want.

For instance type:
Mary had a little lamb, [TAB]Little lamb, little lamb, [TAB]Mary had a little lamb, [TAB]Its fleece was white as snow.

And it should then appear in the box as:
Mary had a little lamb, ●Little lamb, little lamb, ●Mary had a little lamb, ●Its fleece was white as snow.

and these ● could be dragged and snapped.

No? :smiley:

Great idea! This could be developed into a very useful tool with API for picking rhymes and synonyms from dedicated websites…oh, getting ahead of myself! A simple implementation would work for starters.
