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.

Save Notation Window as a Video with Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac

Did you know... Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac allows you to save the Notation Window as a video? What a great way to share your songs with users, and LEARN from the notation as you listen!

From the program manual:
[Save As] | Save as video
-In the Make Notation Video dialog, select a track at the upper left corner. (Note: The dialog title says “Make Chord Sheet Video” until you select a track.)
-You can also set the dimension (width/height) of the video and select the number of frames per second and a specific codec.
-Press the [OK - Render Video] button to start rendering the video. When the video has been created, press the [Show Video File] button.
-You can then double click on the file to watch the rendered video.

Note: A special use of this feature is to combine a Video RealTracks (new with version 2018) with the corresponding notation in a single video. This creates an educational video, which shows the actual performance with notation/tab, playing over your chord progression! To do this, right-click on the Master button or one of the track buttons at the top of the main screen and select Render Video(s) from the menu.
