edit text block

If no text block exists yet you'll be asked whether to create one.

The corresponding text file will be embedded within the MusiCAD file.

A text block may contain a few formatting add-ons:

' italics' ' text between two quotes will display italics
' ' 'bold' ' ' text between two quotes will display bold
[X] chord symbol within text block
[!!] hard page break
[!] conditional page break
[:] simple column divider splitting page in two - equivalent to [1:2]
[N:M] advanced column divider. Use [1:3] en [2:3] to obtain three columns

Example:

     Y si [C]Adelita se [G7]fuera con [C]otro[:]Y si a caso yo muero en la guerra
     la segui[F]ría por tierra y por [G]mar[:]Y si en la sierra me van a sepultar
     si por mar en un buque de [C]guerra[:]Adelita, por Dios te lo ruego
     si por [G7]tierra en un tren mili[C]tar.[:]Que no vayas por mi a llorar.
        Y si Ade[G7]lita quisiera ser mi es[C]posa
        y si Ade[G7]lita fuera mi mu[C]jer
        le compraría un ves[C7]tido de [F]seda 
        para lle[C]var la a bai[G7]lar al cuar[C]tel.
