This should be so simple... what am I not doing?
I want to practice lead guitar to a simple 12-bar ballad, so in a new song I have Start at 1, End at 12 x 3 choruses. Repeat dots : show up in bar 12, and x3.
I enter my chords - C, F, G etc. Hit play, and 12 bars play o.k. - then "cursor" goes back to bar 1, but the music coming out just continues on the G ... like forever!
I've looked in the Manual for an answer and can't find it...

Forever is a very long time ( grin ), but I guess you have a real problem. You don't have to wait forever to know that.

Presumably the track aren't frozen?

Presumably the repeat is set at bar 12:

Hmmm.... Just a thought - You're not using "Play" instead of "Generate and Play" are you? On BIAB for Mac I've sometimes had to actually generate twice to seemingly get changes to "stick".

You've got it! I didn't know you had to use "Generate and Play" if you made any changes ... I don't recall seeing that anywhere in instructions.

But it's done the trick - thank you very much BaBarton!

Excellent, and thanks for posting that this resolved the issue. Most important to help others in the future.

Normally, BIAB picks up that some changes have been made and then automatically generates the new arrangement, especially if changes have been made to the chord grid. But I have found that other changes don't always invoke the re-generation. So, then you need to explicitly regenerate the song using the other button.

You're very welcome! I always feel happy on those rare occasions when I can help someone else here, in a small payback for all the help I've received! grin

jford, this is one of the quirks I've seen in BIAB for Mac, after switching from the PC platform 5 or so years ago - that the expected regeneration doesn't always seem to occur. As I mentioned, I sometimes have to hit "Regenerate and Play" twice...
