Is there a way to convert the chord sheet into a word document. So it can be mailed to non PT owners?

You could choose Print from the Notation View of a track that includes the chord symbols, then uncheck the bass clef and uncheck notation.

You will get the chord names printed overtop of blank staves with barlines.

Use Print Preview to see what is there before printing.

From the Print Prview Window, pick "Save" button where you have a choice of ways to save the file instead of Printing it, such as .bmp or .jpg, png, or tif formats. One or more of these can then be imported or pasted into a word processor file.

You can't save or print without at least one stave, but It is often good to have the treble clef staff and barlines as well as the chord names as they can provide information about the timing of each chord.

I just print a lead sheet to PDF. There are a number of free pdf printer available do a search for print to PDF. This will let you send lead sheet, chords and other thing.

Yes, .pdf is great if you have the software to create them. You can also use software like the free Irfanview to convert those saved formats I mentioned into .pdf files, too.

Another method that may be better suited to nonreaders takes a little more time -- you must retype the chords into the Lyrics window. Screenshot of Lyrics window can yield a nice looking "Chords Only" sort of thing...

#TipTuesday - Band-in-a-Box® for Mac: Use Keystroke "Hot Key" Commands!

Hot Keys are a great way to speed up using a lot of different programs... and that includes Band-in-a-Box®!

Band-in-a-Box has keystroke "hot keys" to mute instruments or to adjust volume, panning, reverb, chorus, or bank of instrument without using the mouse, etc... in fact - there are over 100 Hot Key commands for Band-in-a-Box® for Mac!

To view them all, click here.

Band-in-a-Box® - Save as a Video!

A feature added with our Band-in-a-Box® 2015 release was the option to Save as Video. This feature is easy to use! When you're ready to save your song within Band-in-a-Box®, choose "Save as Video..." and adjut the settings if you'd like, then choose [OK - Render Video]. Once it's rendered, you can select the [Upload to YouTube], or take a look at your video first when you choose [Show Video File]. You can also choose to open this video file up in a different video program - it's your video file!

What does the video show? The chordsheet within Band-in-a-Box® just as you'd see it when the song is playing - don't worry though, the rendering of the song to video is MUCH FASTER than the duration of the song!

To see this in action, visit THIS LINK for our Support video.

Have you made a video of your song using this feature? Share it to our Forum!

Macworld Review - Hands on with Band-in-a-Box 2017

Keith White has just shared his Band-in-a-Box 2017 for Mac review with us: Hands on with Band-in-a-Box 2017

While working with the new Band-in-a-Box 2017 for Mac version, Keith spent some time using the enhanced Song Titles browser feature within the StylePicker - make sure you check out his song links to hear his results!

I have used Band-in-a-Box for over 20 years professionally and have found it one of the most professional and useful programs in my arsenal. The 2017 version takes a great program to new heights.

Pros: vastly improved user control of interface; fabulous range of new sounds from all over the world: useful improvements to Song Titles Browser and Style Picker.

Cons: (as usual) can you have too much of a good thing?
-Keith White, Macworld Australia
