So I'm trying to finish my master's thesis with the leadsheets package. So far everything works fine, but I seem to not being able to get "major13" chords to display correctly as superscripted "maj13" as it is the case with "major7" and "major9". I tried to create a minimal example using the template with which I work. I am - as you can probably see - not very familiar with LaTex or programming at all, but I hope that this is a minor problem to be quickly fixed, even by an unexperienced beginner. Thank you for your help!

I think you're misunderstanding the input style. You also have to modify the default output style.




\writechord{Fma7} - is what I want; \writechord{Cma13} - is what I get

\writechord{Fmi7} - is what I want; \writechord{Cmi13} - is what I get
