forScore for iPad
The fonts Chords and Scales don’t take advantage of new text features only that updated apps and operating systems offer but from universally applicable features as well. With the release of iOS 11 the music reader app forScore was updated to Apple’s new mobile operating system.
Although forScore does not support custom fonts yet, it is a breeze on iPads supporting Drag ‘n Drop to add chord-, scale- and arpeggio diagrams to its sheet music and lyrics sheets using Apple’s free app Keynote and the fonts Chords and Scales.
Creating Neck Diagrams
- open the app forScore on your iPad
- open Apple Keynote in Split View
- in Apple Keynote create your custom chord and scale diagrams using the fonts Chords and Scales
- drag and drop your diagrams from Keynote’s slide panel into the music sheet
- apply different colors, backgrounds or styles to the diagrams
- adjust the diagram size if necessary

Drag and Drop – iOS 11
Since I created the fonts Chords and Scales some years ago I hoped that Apple would release an update for iOS featuring Drag and Drop for text on the iPad. With the release of iOS 11 Apple introduced quite a few new features the fonts Chords and Scales take advantage of.
Drag and Drop for text – that implies the fonts Chords and Scales – is the most useful feature that makes the work with diagrams much easier.
Chords & Scales Library
First upload the Chords & Scales Library with more than 10000 chord, scale and arpeggio diagrams to your iCloud Drive. Include your custom diagrams as well.
Open a new Apple Pages document on your iPad. Then open the Files App introduced with iOS 11.
Use Split View mode to drag & drop diagram files from the Chords and Scales Library to the Apple Pages document. Edit the diagrams by applying text styles, resize the diagram by changing the font size, add frames to the diagrams and background color, et cetera.
Use apps such as Readdle’s PDF Expert to drag and drop diagrams from your iCloud Drive to a PDF leadsheet as shown in the video.
It’s that simple.
