I don’t know what I did, but somehow the song picker no longer lists songs in any discernible order. I’ve tried deleting SongList3.bin, deleting the preferences and even reinstalling BiaB.

Any suggestions?

When you click on the column name at the top will it change ?

The column headings are not clickable.

(On mine, at least. I don’t recall if they were clickable before this started or not. The column headers have a flatter look to them than the ones in the style picker, which are clickable.)

Repeatedly.

I suppose that is another "To Do" the column sort.
Is it in the same order as the SongList.bin ?
You can put it into an excel spreadsheet and sort them,
then type the song in the search.

I don’t have Excel, and I’ve had no luck loading it in LibreOffice in any recognizable form (just exactly what character is it using for a delimiter, anyway?). That said, it does seem to have the same order as the song picker window.

I may just take to loading files from the Finder.

You can use Find & Replace to remove the garbage characters between the names with a delimiter - or anything else.

It should be the same order as the filename > File Name

So I can confirm that the issue is a problem with having the songs folder on an APFS volume. I realized this when I noticed that the custom icons dialog in Logic Pro X was all out of order as well. I copied my songs folder over to an HFS+ volume and, sure enough, the songs appeared in the correct order.

I don’t know enough about the file systems to tell what’s gone wrong. I’ve sent feedback to Apple so maybe it’ll get fixed in an update.

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.
