Re: How can I view .Onsong files?


Hi there @Baseman, thanks for reaching out to us here!

It sound like you're having issues with previewing .onsong files in Dropbox, is that right?

At the moment, this is a file type that doesn't preview through Dropbox. You can check out the full list of files that preview as text files from here.

Can you possibly change the file to another extension that previews as a text file through Dropbox? From what I could find, OnSong can understand any type of plain text file.

Let me know!

Thank you for your quick response. Renaming all file-extends is no good solution although it would work. Could you include .onsong filetype in your list where textfiles can be previewed. That would help us a lot.

Previewing onsong files as the program Onsong does is not nessesary.

Thanks again
