Bold verse label
#1
Okay, so I have been going through the manual and figured out how to indent the chorus with the bold Chorus label at the top. I wouldn't want the verses indented because that would take away the effect of the chorus indention. However, I think it would be advantageous to have the verse label, ie. Verse 1, in bold font. There doesn't seem to be a chordpro command for that.

ChordPro defines three forms of comments:

{comment: ...}
{comment_italic: ...}
{comment_box: ...}

You can use one of these to highlight the Verse. For example:

{comment: Verse 1}
lyrics of verse 1

You won't get the bold font as with "Chorus", but still a very distinctive "Verse 1".

It appears MBS does not recognize some of those commands. 

{c:Verse 1} produces Verse 1

{comment_box:Verse 1} does nothing except hide the comment completely. But the italicized font isn't too bad.

{comment_box: ...}
is not (yet) supported by MSP

{comment: ...}
is displayed in italic
{comment_italic: ...}
is shown highlighted, with the same formatting as {highlight: ...}
I find this confusing as it does not do what the wording says.

It would be great if I could configure the appearance of the different comments:
bold / italic / text colour / background colour / font / font size / ...
global settings (not song specific) would be sufficient

Yes, I have to agree fully. The italic and box variants stem from the original ChordPro program and in 1992 we didn't have many options to make text standout...

Personally, I'd advice to render the comments as the names imply, and have a config setting to control the actual appearance of the comment variants.

To match the current MSPro behaviour, default settings could be:

* comment: show as italic
* comment_italic: show as highlight
* comment_box: ignore
