Is it a typo that there is no piano roll advertised (or did I just miss it)?
Have the 2017 faults been rectified?

Mr. Gannon said in another thread here that 2018 would be getting the piano roll in an update.

It wouldn't be the first time PG has done this, if you remember they added VST compatibility to 2017 Mac BIAB, a month or so after it was released.

Some questions to the prospect of a Piano Roll release in a "future patch".

Is there any time frame for this?

Will it be before the May discount expires as I would like to see it before I considered upgrading.

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.
