Preset configurations

ChordPro comes with a number of standard configurations.

It is important to know that ChordPro always loads the default configuration and then adds the other configurations.

  • In the GUI, there is a dropdown list for the presets in the Preferences dialog.
  • On the command line, use --config, e.g., --config=modern1.

Some of the presets define a full style, e.g., chordii and modern1. Other presets modify the current style, e.g., nashville and ukulele. So you can combine presets to form new styles. For example, --config=modern1,nashville
