This option is very valuable for customers. It is the easiest way for them to find out what they do or do not have with their version of BIAB.

Can this be made easier to read and to understand?

Also, being able to export the information to a document or spreadsheet would also be useful as it would provide a hard-copy record that people could use for reference when they try to determine whether or not they should get other add-ons.

Definitely a big +1

Also, the display format could be improved. Suggest using Tabbed page at the top of the form with selectable large text windows showing the contents rather than 8 small text windows that only display 2 or 3 lines at a time.

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac - Importing MIDI Files

Did you know that Standard MIDI files can be read in to the Melodist or Soloist track within Band-in-a-Box? You can use all of the MIDI File, or select channels or a specific range of bars, using these steps:
1. Melody | Import Melody from MIDI File to select a MIDI file from disk using the file dialog.
2. Melody | Import Melody from Clipboard - when the MIDI data is already copied from another program to the
clipboard.

A new window will open, asking for additional criteria - which channels, # of bars to offset..., # of bars to import, include lyrics, include patch changes - and more! Head to our online manual Chapter 10: Working with MIDI to learn more!
