have you ever thought about using Rosegarden as an editor for Karaoke files=
Well, I did, and had success - sort of.=20
Karaoke lyrics are represented in MIDI files as text events. Rosegarden can=
read such files, edit the text events and export them back.
But there are some shortcomings to make Rosegarde a real Karaoke file edito=
=2D Between words, you need to add blanks - but blanks are used as delimite=
Rosegarden, so your only chance is to add them in the event editor.
=2D To include line feeds, KMid expects a \n or \l (0xA or 0xD), which cann=
input in the event editor (and is ignored during import). I was able to pat=
KMid to accept "\" as a new line indicator, but that's not a real good=20
Being the first and only Karaoke editor under Linux - wouldn't that add ev=
more glory to the developer's fame?

It doesn't sound like there would be too much involved to bend Rosegarden into
being able to import/edit/export this stuff directly. We're in a feature
freeze at the moment, but do feel free to log a feature request if there
isn't one out already. (This rings a bell somehow, so there may be.)
Sounds like it would take just a little bit of twiddling here and there to
make it possible to do what you need, and it could probably be done without
breaking anything else, but I haven't actually looked at the code to see
what's involved. It's worth discussing in more depth on the other side of
