Subject Upside down notes possible?

How can you get upside down notes in Tux Guitar? I'm a fingerstyle player and it's helpful to notate the bass, or the notes played by the thumb, as upside down notes.

Any help would be appreciate. Nice application!

Hi Julian.

By "upside down," I mean where the head of the note is below the flag. See this picture of the parts of a note:


Here is some notes "upside down":


The notation of the TuxGuitar front page has the notes with the flags above the note head, and some with the note head above the flags. So I think TuxGuitar can do both, buy I don't know how I can do it.

Well, you can write your tablature upside-down if you change the instrument tunning (Track->Properties).
But you can't load other tablatures upside down.
Maybe upside-down tabs look easier to you now, but I recommend you to adopt proper tablatures as soon as possible, because you've got it wrong.

He's not talking about the tuning or which string goes where, he's talking about the shapes of notes on the staff.

If you have a note that sits lower than the second space, generally, the flag goes up. above it, the flag goes down. I think he's saying he wants to know a way to toggle it.

Yes, and there's no way to do it, except that he changes the tunning.

Saile: Las cuerdas de la guitarra que aparece abajo, son solo un dibujo, por lo que lo vas a ver siempre igual ( dependiendo de la cantidad de cuerdas de la pista ).. pero si queres invertir las cuerdas simplemente tenes que cambiar la afinacion de la pista y veras como cambian los sonidos de cada cuerda tanto en la guitarra como en la tablatura.
