TablEdit Users Say:
"I have been playing guitar since the mid-1960s, but only recently have started to study and learn to play the instrument well. As my teacher and I worked on new arrangements, I realized that I needed a good way to set them down for practice and future use. I looked at a number of computer products and, after evaluating each of them based on their features, the TablEdit program was clearly superior. I down loaded and tried the trial version and quickly realized that this program was perfect for me. It was easy to use, had both TAB and standard notation (which I consider critical). I also like the way in which timing is indicated in the TAB through adding standard notation stems to the TAB entries. Also, the chord grid feature makes it easy to set down fingerings for quick reference while playing. Additionally, the ability to play back the TAB via MIDI is great -- one can quickly hear if there is an error in the TAB or in the arrangement."

Starting with TablEdit for Windows
To install TablEdit, you'll need to run the tabled32.exe distribution file. This distribution file is a self-extracting archive and when you run it, TablEdit will be installed in a directory (or folder) called by default Program Files/Tabledit.
If you receive a warning or error message when you install TablEdit, click here.
Keep in mind that this is a demo package with certain critical limitations. Namely, you can open, print and play *.tef files and modify the MIDI options to alter the sound you hear when you play the music but do not try to "re-save" the file when you're done listening to it. The demo version only saves 16 measures of tab, so you will lose most of what you had already downloaded.
The latest TablEdit True Type font file (tef265.ttf) is automatically installed at first-time installation of the program in order to allow correct display and printout of musical symbols (clefs, notes, rests, codas, etc.).
If the automatic font installation has been unsuccessful you'll see rectangles displayed instead of the G clef and rests. If this is the case, use the Windows configuration panel to install the font (C:\\Program Files\tef265.ttf) manually. The system will then recognize the font automatically.
Tip: In order to restore all of the default parameters, simply start TablEdit while keeping the [shift] key held down.
- Download and mount tableditdemo.dmg on your hard disk.

- Unzip pockettedemo.zip.
- Download pockette.arm.cab on your PDA.
- Back on your PDA, locate pockette.arm (the .cab extension is hidden) and run it. This will install PocketTE to the newly created "Program Files/PocketTE" directory and create a shortcut to PocketTE in the "Programs" screen.
