I Lurve the Tune-O-Tron (the online program linked to, above), and have, ever since I found out about it, included a link to it whenever I post a song to Mudcat.

I particularly like the fact that it recognizes the fields for lyrics, allowing words to be shown both lining up under the dots (with a 'w:' field) and as printed verses below the staves (with 'W:').

I use Noteworthy Composer when writing songs, but that program only prints the lyrics under the dots... which is rather hard to read when you have a song with lots of verses.

As a matter of fact, I just downloaded the shareware version of ABC2Win, hoping for the same capability, but was disapointed to discover that it doessn't know what to do with lyrics. When I include any lyrics fields, it thinks I'm trying to slur my notes, and gives me all sorts of dire warnings about exeding limitations, and such.

Is there a downloadable version of whatever program Tune-o-tron uses? Because it is nifty!
