#413554 - 05/15/17 09:36 PM [Band-in-a-Box for Windows] I want to change the look of BIAB back to 2016 version

I am probably missing an option that is right in front of my face, but I really liked the look of 2016 (with the mixer on the right and the larger, more colorful icons on the left). When I updated to 2017, it changed (everything is in a menu). Is there a way to change the view to what I would prefer? I am pretty sure that I found the option to do so once, but it has been a couple of months since I have played with BIAB and I cannot figure out what I did..... Thanks for any and all help!

Hi,

I use Ctrl+T to change between the different views.

Yes, good point. That is the key command to achieve the same function.

When the new GUI view came out, at first I was a little confused and it slowed me down. Very quickly, I changed my mind about it. I would encourage you to spend more time with it before giving up. By creating a Custom toolbar of the icons/processes I use most frequently, I can function very well in the new interface without going back to the old one.

Just a note about the mixer. There were many subtle changes in the mixer for the 2017 version, and you're going to see the same mixer no matter which view you select.
