Since we now have both jTab and ABCjs on active on the meta, it's time we had a specific place to test both. Use the answer space below to test and stretch the limits of both jTab and ABCjs for both on-site documentation of how each work and to find where there may be issues encountered.

Note: The formatting does not seem to kick in immediately when you save the changes. You need to re-load the page for the formatting to apply to the post.

Basic chord progression in jTab:

Cmaj7  Dm7 G7 Cmaj7

Not the most obvious changes on the fingers. Let's try try the barre forms:

%X/X.3/1.5/3.4/2.5/4.3/1[Cmaj7] %X/X.5/1.7/3.5/1.6/2.5/1[Dm7] %3/1.5/5.3/1.4/2.3/1.3/1[G7] %X/X.3/1.5/3.4/2.5/4.3/1[Cmaj7] 

Not rendering quite right. Let's try one per line in a code block:

%X/X.3/1.5/3.4/2.5/4.3/1[Cmaj7]
%X/X.5/1.7/3.5/1.6/2.5/1[Dm7]
%3/1.5/5.3/1.4/2.3/1.3/1[G7]
%X/X.3/1.5/3.4/2.5/4.3/1[Cmaj7] 

Not rendering quite right. Let's try one per code block:

%X/X.3/1.5/3.4/2.5/4.3/1[Cmaj7]

-

%X/X.5/1.7/3.5/1.6/2.5/1[Dm7]

-

%3/1.5/3.3/1.4/2.3/1.3/1[G7]

-

%X/X.3/1.5/3.4/2.5/4.3/1[Cmaj7] 

That's pretty ugly. Let's get it fixed.

I was going to ask about beaming, but if you put a space between the two groups of four Gs then it gets beamed as two groups of four quavers.

I've also added the quote without the first barline.

I'm curious about how big of a score we can use. Let's see:

... 50 lines more (deleted again because it made the page load really slow) ...

    It's good you tried that, but as you noticed, such a long score makes the page load really slow, even in the version with “only” 57 lines. I removed most of them. – leftaroundabout Aug 7 '16 at 22:48

Allignment of chords is weird, the note first note of each bar seems to be centred on the chord name which can make the notes in the bar end up off. Also, no superscripts for numbers
