I’m starting work on a new version of Cantabile’s Show Notes panel that will hopefully address most of the feature requests since it was originally released. I’ve put if off for so long because to do it properly is a fair bit of work, but I’ve decided the time has come.
The plan is to turn the show notes panel into a rich text editor - essentially a mini word processor, just click and start typing. It will also have the ability to embed other content types: images, PDF pages, ChordPro blocks, perhaps markdown sections etc…
The core functionality for this I’m building right now as a general purpose rich text editor in the new version of GuiKit (the toolkit Cantabile’s UI is built upon) and I’ve decided to document the entire process as a series videos. Since they’re more technical than what the typical Cantabile user will be interested in I’m posting them to the Topten Software blog and YouTube channel rather than the Cantabile ones.
In any case I’ll post them here as well for anyone interested and the first two are below. If you’re curious in what goes into developing a feature like this, follow along and of course feedback and questions welcome.
