Enter Chord name  
« on: Jan 15th, 2021, 11:33pm »

I need to enter a chord name above a selected note.   I just updated 7.9.3c.  My memory is that ctl-K was used to enter chord names above the staff.   Has this changed?  perhaps I don't remember correctly.
 
In any case I can't find the instruction in the documentation.
 
Thanks in advance

I don't think anyhing has changed in this function. Perhaps you mean Staves>Chord display...

I think all I want to do is enter text with the Chord name (ie A) above the melody staff as is common with folk music.  No guitar patterns or anything complicated

Well, that should do the trick. You don't need to check the chord diagram or automatic computing boxes. What I often do is : check the "display chords" box, uncheck the "show frames" and choose "every beat".

If diagrams are not to be displayed, you may also position the chord-name line below the staff by dragging down the red >c.... in the left-margin icon set.
 
Do not forget to un-check "Staff with lyrics" in the black triangle menu !

The chord grid can help with displaying chords
