Request 1: tab
Request 2: Implement or document string indications in the manual. I
think that you have done this, but I was unable to figure out where you
put it in the online manual on the website. It should be under
"fingering indications"
or among the rest of the things that you attach to notes.

Since a string is always indicated with a circle around it:


could or does indicate that the C played with the 1st finger is on the
string, which would make "gis" appear above the note in a circle.
Numbers are
usually used by guitar players, but most strings use the name of the
note as a string indication. You want to provide the ability to use the
note name as (gis) or (GIS) (G#) or (sol#) or whatever in addition to
(number), and to provide flexibility, meaning that you ought not to
assume that everyone using do re mi for notes would not want (C) (D) (E)
for strings, because that would be a wrong assumption. Villa Lobos, a
Brazilian publishing in Paris, had it done that way for a reason which
is obvious. *Legibility*.

request 3:
Can you have lily produce gimp format for dragging?

Tiny bug: I noticed that I had to put an "m" fingering indication in
quotes in stable.
Apologies if it's fixed already.
