Note that the build number is still 325.

I noted the 325 build number. Very confusing - if something changed it should get a new build number, that is the purpose of the build number system, to let you know something changed. I hope PG gives new build numbers even if the change is only a single item and doesn't do anymore of these non updated updates.

Peter said in another thread that BBW.EXE is not changed in this update. I just wanted to warn people that it might give them pause at first.

Just updated to this build, but when I go to Help/display program manual, the pdf is still BB2011 (not 2011.5 as stated in the update) Is this an oversight I wonder?

I think you are correct. It looks like the program manual and the program update manual links from within BIAB Help are still linking to version 2011. This newest patch did not update BBW.EXE, so perhaps it needs to in order to fix those two links.

The actual PDF files for the manuals for 2011.5 are in your /BB folder, though. You can just go and read them directly.

Note that the Help Index and Topic Search from within BIAB has been updated to 2011.5. In the Help, Topic Search main screen, you will also see a link for the 2011.5 new features. So there is help available for the newest version.

Reply,

First make backup files of both 2011 and 2011_5 pdf's.
Then rename 2011_5 to 2011.

Works just fine..

This will get you by until next update.

Good idea. In the meantime, I've sent the problem in to Support.

Thanks Matt, but in C:/bb/PDF Manuals folder, my manuals only go as far as BB 2010.....no 2011 or 2011.5. Could the later manuals be somewhere else?

That's a puzzle. You might need to contact PG Music Support.

Assuming you installed BIAB always to the default folder of C:/BB then you should have these files:

Band-in-a-Box 2011 Manual.pdf
Band-in-a-Box 2011 Upgrade Manual.pdf
Band-in-a-Box 2011_5 Manual.pdf
Band-in-a-Box 2011_5 Upgrade Manual.pdf

I do not have such a folder as /BB/PDF Manuals. All these files are in the /BB folder. Perhaps you could search your hard drive to see where they might be?

I was making the assumption that the files you need came in the update. This may not be true; they may have come during beta testing. Support will know.

mal12345,

Just trying to help, not fault.
I actually started downloading the wrong update and
cancelled it.
Then grabbed the current one.

Check out your stylepicker top right of page.
Is the Web Demo button there ?
If not you may have grabbed the wrong update like
I did.

If Web Demo button is there then like you said the new PDF's are not there.

Good luck,

Seeker

Beginners Help - Muting the Melody Notation

Visit our Beginners Forum, and you'll notice our amazing Forum Community helping out new program users!

Like this recent post regarding Muting the Melody Notation: http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=458716 - Forum user Matt Finley did a great job of answering the new program user!

Our Beginners Forum really is a great resource for new program users!

Q: When I have entered chords and notation for a song, is it possible to mute the notation and just have the chords playing? This would be helpful for when I just want the chord backing track but want to read the notation.

A: There are several ways to do this. The easiest is probably to use the Mixer window and change the volume slider to zero for the Melody track. Or, hit the Mute icon on the Mixer for the Melody Track.

Another way, with more control rather than all or nothing, is to press F5 at the measure where you want to mute, and select mute or change the volume to zero. Later, press F5 and select Return to Normal, or change the volume back.

#TechTipTuesday - Band-in-a-Box® Patch Updates

If you're ever experiencing an issue with your Band-in-a-Box program, make sure you have the most recent patch update for your version - this can be done at http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm.

Patch updates are released frequently, and are created by our development team to fix any reported bugs, tweak existing features within the program, update demos and other files as needed, and more!

To find out which version of the program you have, visit Help | About Band-in-a-Box within the program. You will see the full version number listing as:
Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2018 (512)

The number in parentheses is the build number. As you can see, my Band-in-a-Box is up to date and will continue to stay that way because I've selected "Automatically check for updates every 7 days" within the Help | Check for Updates.... option (you can set the number of days to a different number). This window will also look to see if you're version is up to date, so you don't technically have to visit http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm if you didn't want to!

Once you've installed your patch update (make sure the program is closed when you're doing this), give it another try - if you are still experiencing the same issue you can report it by contacting us directly, or you can post your result to the Forum thread that also announces the patch update, like our recent Band-in-a-Box 2018 Build 512 Update (Feb 15) post.
