The chart view displays the chord progression of the current song, and indicates the current song position. The chart view also lets you edit the song, using standard editing commands, e.g. copy, cut, paste, etc. To insert a new chord, use the insert command. To modify an existing chord, double-click it, or select it and press the Enter key. You can also rename a chord. For additional methods, see the table below. Chords can be reordered by dragging and dropping them.
Multiple selection is supported: you can copy, cut, paste, delete, rename, or drag a range of chords. To select a single chord, left-click it. To select a range of chords, left-click the first chord in the range, and then while holding down the Shift key, left-click the last chord in the range. The arrow keys move the current position, as do the Page Up, Page Down, Home, and End keys. These keys can also be used to select a range of chords, by combining them with the Shift key.
The chart view has a context menu, which includes the editing commands, as well as the commands for creating and modifying sections. If the song is transposed, the chart view displays the transposed chords. Advanced users may prefer to edit songs as text.

|Change a chord's type||Right-click the chord to show the context menu, select Type, and then select the desired chord type from the list. If the number of available chord types makes the context menu inconveniently long, you can alternatively use the Chord bar to change the chord type.|

This method lets you change the chord's root, type, and bass note, but not its duration.|
