The "intro generate button"? I have looked and looked, try help index and on the verge of visiting a Voodoo Queen down here to help find it.

Any direction will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Thanks,


Danny,

All of the commands in the MENUS across the top are pretty much exactly the same and in the same places that they've always been located.

In this case, the Generate Intro command is located under the EDIT menu.

When you can't locate a command in the new GUI's toolbars, etc. take a breath and take a look at those MENU items across the top.

Mac,

I did find it under the edit drop down menu, thanks. But after many breaths, some deep but not all, I still can't find the "icon", so I am guessing it was eliminated with the new GUI?

Stay Warm!

Sorry to seem like such a blockhead guys but I have no idea what an "AABA button" is and the only "song icon" I see is over the "Style Icon" but no problem the "under edit tip" has solved the problem.

Maybe one day it will just pop out a say here I am! Until then the intro generations will be made from under the "edit" function.

Lower Screen Resolutions will cut off what is seen in the toolbars.

Just use the little down arrows to the right of each toolbar to view the rest.

Danny,

Following on from Seeker's, Ray's, Mario's and Mac's comments ...

Here's a picture of where to find it on lower screen resolutions. Just follow the 1, 2, 3.



Regards,
Noel

The icon was "not" on my screen but the down arrow gave me another shot at it. I guess I was spoiled with one click to generate an intro instead of now "3" clicks.

In defense of old guys, hey we don't really know how many clicks we have left so I choose to use mine wisely.

Thanks everyone, now you can take the rest of the day off :>

Mario STAY WARM brother!

PS: Thanks Pete, and by the way I still do not have a clue at to what an "AABA" Icon is.:>

Mike and Danny, I get it now! I have 2011 BiaB installed on my Internet computer and checked this out. Yes the Icon is no longer there in the new GUI but the function lives on. Maybe you should put its return on the wish list.

Hi Danny, like has been mentioned, it depends on your screen resolution. In the 2014 version, if things don't fit width-wise, they are grouped into sub-items:
