In looking on the forums, I see that there is a workaround to have text-based tabs in the Chords section, but that isn't really what I'm after. I'd really like to be able to have the chord diagrams embedded with the lyrics, rather than just the chord names.

So instead of
Cmaj7  Gsus2/B       Am11    E7sus4
Peg     it will come back to you could have more specificity into what inversion, voicing etc. by embedding the actual guitar tab (see attachment) in place of the chords. Ideally, you should be able to turn these off and on.

Even allowing graphic images with metadata about what the chord is would be helpful! I'm willing to make images of the chords I need, but there's no way to show them in the scrolling document while I'm playing.


Embedding images into a formatted text field is on my wish list and I'll add a vote for you.


In the new version of BandHelper released today, you can embed JPG images into the Lyrics field. This is shown in step 12 on this page:
