To turn any song into a stop time chorus- like Count Basie's "Cute"

This could either be a simple checkbox.... that adds 2 dots of code to every chord for the stop time effect.

...or the B style of a "New Orleans Hot 5" style in which the 2 dots are embedded right in the style itself.

Perhaps an option to do this to the whole song, or a highlighted range of bars.

I answered this in the other thread. The solution is to use the "Edit, Copy Special, Copy Rests" command, which will take your specified bar as a template to copy to the remaining bars. This copies rests/shots/holds.

That's wonderful, John. I'm familiar with 'copy attributes'in video programs to match dissimilar video clips. But I never knew this feature existed in BIAB.
I can't thank you enough!

Simple way: Do the hold for one chord, then hit H followed by a number of choice and press Enter, which will copy quickly that hold to the next same number of bars.
Example: I want 8 held bars in a row = I set the hold for the first bar of those eight, then type h7 and hit Enter.

Bingo, done! cool

P.s. works for shots & rests too.

Even better, Icelander!
And if you type in H without a number...it does the whole song.
PERFECT!
Thank you.

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.
