Edit in Monospace Font
I'm really picky about making sure my chords appear above the correct syllable of a word. I have been editing my songs in a text editor in monospace font, then importing or copy/pasting into Chordle and using the Import From Text File option to re-space my chords.
It would be nice to be able to just do this all in the editor of Chordle.

The next version of Chordle will allow for storing and editing songs in the ChordPro format. This will allow you to position chords exactly where you want without losing the (possibly subjectively) nicer presentation of a song in a variable width font.
Does this help?

This can be accomplished on Windows by using a non-kerning font such as Courier New. I work on a lot of charts that include tablature and Chordle simply can't line the text up equally.
This problem might be as easy as:
1. Giving users text options
2. Changing the font Chordle uses to an equal-space font.

This would be great. It could be implemented just by changing the font. There is a field in the exported XML for monospace but I couldn't see any difference. When that field is true, maybe the app should use a monospace font.

Absolutely agree! Another solution would be to use spaces instead of tabs in Word export (see suggestion above)
