Can't remember if this had been asked for already. If it has, I'm renewing the request.

Just trying to understand. This might be done by highlighting a range of bars (perhaps any length, not just one or two) and then specifying the number of times to repeat? That would be very cool if it could be used multiple times within the one song.

Or are you suggesting something else, Ray?

I'm talking about the / with a dot on either side. It would be nice to have that sign available. Having to enter the chord(s) only one time would be nice.

The repeat sign is included with Muse Score but I"m more used to BIAB for lead sheets.

Yeah, despite MuseScore reading BIAB files, I still use a different notation program (and would be lost without a repeat sign).

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!
