Edit Text

Use this command to edit the current song as a text file. You should familiarize yourself with the song file format before attempting this. Advanced users may find this method faster than using the chart view editing functions. The shortcut for this command is Ctrl+E. The command displays a simple editing dialog containing a multiline edit control. The usual clipboard editing functions are supported. The editing dialog also supports find and replace, via the following keyboard shortcuts: Ctrl+F for Find, F3 for Find Next, and Ctrl+H for Replace.

If you prefer, you can also edit songs with an external text editor such as Notepad. Note however that if you externally edit a song, your edits won't be visible within ChordEase until you close and reopen the song. To avoid confusion, it's recommended to use the editing dialog.
