The only way to edit the length of a chord name would be to use a text box and shorten the wording a bit.  As it is not always possible to shorten the wording and the chord names are hard-coded into the app, I will move this over to the "Feature Requests" section of the PreSonus Answers system.  There is currently not a way to adjust the font size of individual chord names.

Brian, it's not a matter of just changing the font on the chord name, it's that the chord name is tied to the note below it, and if the chord name is long,  it spreads out the notes (and messses with the formatting of the music). I haven't tried this but is using a text box instead of the chord namer a better way to prevent the notes from changing position when the chord name is too long? But if that works, what if you have TWO chords with long names next to each other, so that the first long name overlaps into where the second note normally is placed? Would there be a way to stagger the chord name positions (sort of like Lyric1 and Lyric2) so they would both fit? Currently there seems to be only one text line available.
