Creating section markers

Postby MercuryHg34 » Thu Oct 12, 2017 10:34 am

Hey, the last tutorial I could find on this is quite outdated and when I follow its instructions the name of the section doesn't appear over the beat I make an event on. Is it still working despite this? The barline turns red like any other event, but I can't tell if it's actually doing anything. Any help is appreciated!

In Preferences:

Then left click on a beatline, press Shift + E, type in the section name.

Beat -> Events is also another way to add sections.

Never messed around with preferences, thanks for that. Does the section have to have brackets around it to work?

You just need to put the section name itself, EoF takes care of the [section ...] part

Cool, works fine. Last question, is there anyone who can answer here or direct me to a thread that talks about section naming conventions? I know GH uses some wacky names for sections sometimes, and it's also not clear when to break up a section using numbers vs letters, etc.

I chart for Phase Shift, but I don't see how that matters. Should a section be called Bridge A or Bridge 1, etc. is what I'm looking for. I'll still check out that link though, thank you.

Just open up a chart from myself or Sygen or even an official chart and see how we did it.

A number at the end of a section = That section will reappear somewhere else in the song (ex: Chorus 1, Chorus 2, Chorus 3...)

A letter at the end of a section = That section is long enough to be divided into smaller sections (ex: Verse 1A, Verse 1B, Verse 1C...)
