I've finished editing the chords in a BIAB songfile that I downloaded, and would like it to end at an earlier bar than it does in the original downloaded version.

I've deleted all chords after where I want things to end, but the song continues playing past that point (repeating the final chord). Note: the white boxes in those bars are still there, but are blank (no chords entered). I guess that I want to remove those extraneous empty bars and can't figure out how its done.

Can anyone help?

Thanks.

Sure. It's the Bar at End of Chorus number that you also have to change. This could be the 2nd of the three numbers to the right of the song name that normally start as 1 - 32 - 3. If you are using a Tag, it will be the measure number in "Tag Ends After Bar".

Yup, that worked.

Thanks, Matt!

Yup, that worked.

Correction - That worked only with one specific song. With others, the file plays for another bar or two before ending.

I don't know why it worked with one and not others. Perhaps it's got something to do with a "tag"? I don't know what a tag is, so I don't understand the last part of your answer, Matt.

Thanks again!
