I've tried doing more digging on my own, but I cannot find anything in the authoring tutorial pdf and the official authoring documents are down (again). 

 

I'm authoring my first song (bass currently) and have no clue what Trill Marker, Strum Marker, or BRE do. I would like to finalize my bass track before moving on. 

 

Also, I cannot for the life of me figure out where I put section names in. The best I can find is that it may have something with dropdown whitelisted options in magma from a different thread? But do I do these after exporting the file out of reaper or within reaper somehow. 

 

Thanks all. Huge learning curve here.

Here's the "new" link to the docs. Trill marker is used for trill sections, where you alternate between two notes quickly. Strum marker is similar, but for strumming sections. BRE is the Big Rock Ending, which is used at the end of a song when there's a lot of stuff going on that ends on a note or two.

Section names go in the EVENTS track as Text Events.

Many thanks all. Hope to post my first song before too long.

I would like to clarify on adding practice sections in your song: You cannot give these sections whatever name you want (unless I'm mistaken). I found this out yesterday with my chart. Go through the Practice Sections of that doc Fugg posted. You can use any section names listed there.

If you're using the C3 template, just Load in the Text Event List - Events.txt file and you can choose your section based on a drop-down menu. Everything in the drop-down will be a valid text event name.
