Originally they were a .doc for printing, then changed to .txt to go into an app that did not know ChordPro, then in an update, it would accept some ChordPro tags in the txt file, now moving to MS, I thought they could import as they are (the other app is still using them.)
I will have to duplicate them (hundreds) and run change suffix program (that's ok). Unfortunately there are other tags that are in them for the other app but not part of the ChordPro specifications, so might have to run some Find and Change scripts
(regex, which I seldom use, so takes me a while to work out). 
It also means different copies for different apps, so sharing a common Dropbox for everyone or each device is a little more complicated.

Sounds like good enough reason to request an enhancement. Might not be too difficult to add a config option that says treat any text file as a chordPro file regardless of extension. 

Not sure what the chordPro spec says about dealing with non-standard tags. I would hope it would be like XML and just ignored.
