Can you create structures....

For example can you just write down all the riffs, and then name them(Intro, Verse, etc.) and then tell it to repeat the riffs later on in the song?.. Like writing down somewhere, play Intro, Verse, Chorus, Verse, Chorus...
Instead of writing down the same verse riff numerous times in the whole tab?..

You can use musical directions. Basically you label a riff with a Segno, then later you can say "D.S." [go to Segno and continue playback]. Or D.S to Coda which is go to Segno and play until you hit "To Coda", then you label a riff later on "Coda" and it jumps there.

There are other things as well, such as D.C. [go to beginning and play back], or D.S.S [double Segno, which is the maximum amount of segnos you can use in Powertab].

There's a tutorial in the Help section of Powertab to explain them more thoroughly.

You can also use repeat bars and have two different endings, and with some creative use, save a lot of space if a big pattern is repeated.

But if a note is tied over a bar, it really screws up the Musical Directions or Repeat Endings if you have to jump to a new place in the tab, so for those songs you usually just have to copy/paste over.

Yeah it took me a while to figure this out, but it makes it much easier.
