Figured out how to edit lesson texts!

You know how you can peep the lessons in Live, and all Ableton packs come with cool-looking lesson texts, too, and you've thought, "I wish I could do that!"
Yeah, I've always wanted to know how to edit the lesson text, too. I've emailed Ableton about it, but they didn't want to tell me.
I've taken a quick look at some packs a few times but never had the patience to find out how the lesson text thing works; my own efforts didn't launch the text area.
Well, today, after drinking loads of coffee, I figured it out.
It's fairly simple. You can add images and links, too.
This would be super handy if you wanted to create lessons of your own; so far, we haven't had the chance. It's not that useful including a text file, to be honest.
Now you can share your songs and add a bit of info about yourself and/or the song. Or, maybe include instructions for a collaborator.
This should be good for those sharing a tutorial project, for informative workshop use, etc.
I did an empty Ableton Live project which will hopefully demonstrate to you, too, how it works.
You can download a project that demonstrates it from my blog post: http://fanumusic.com/ableton-live-lesson-text-hack/
Feel free to share…this should be common knowledge, IMHO, as it's a nice feature.
