Songpress 1.6 released, fork it on GitHub! (28-Nov-15 16:47)

Songpress 1.6 introduces the following features:

  • Windows 10 compatibility
  • Different output for different usage: chords are not always useful. For a large lead sheet, chords on every single verse are welcome, but for a small leaflet one could prefer to put chords only on the first verse and on the (first) chorus, in order to save space, or even to remove chords completely (for example for singers).

Songpress 1.4 released! (26-May-11 22:43)

With its first Linux version, Songpress 1.4 becomes cross-platform, and brings some cool new features to Windows users too.

Songpress for Linux does not support copying formatted songs and pasting them in other applications. However, you can export formatted songs as vector (or raster) images, and import them in your favorite DTP or graphics software. For example, Scribus or Inkscape.

What's new in Songpress 1.4?

  • Linux version
  • Export formatted songs as a vector image, in several formats: Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG), Enhanced Metafile (EMF, Windows only)
  • Usability improvements: paste chords from one verse to another (similar to Microsoft Word's paste format feature); improved chord editing
  • Automatically check for updates
  • Several bugs fixed
