Importing tab-only music from PDFs/images
Our PDF upload feature supports tab-only music — that is, tablature without corresponding standard notation. But the support is a bit limited. Here’s what you need to know.
|Notation||Limitation||How to fix|
|Note rhythms||Every note gets imported as a quarter note.||You can quickly change notes’ rhythmic values using the “Decrease duration” and “Increase duration” editor commands. The default keyboard shortcuts are + and -, respectively.|
|Tuning||For six-string tab, we assume standard guitar tuning. For four-string tab, we assume standard bass-guitar tuning.||You can change this in our editor by editing the instrument settings.|
|Clef||For six-string tab, we assume a G clef. For four-string tab, we assume an F clef.||You can change this in our editor by changing the clef.|
