February 05, 2018  -  Notation Window Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows!

New with Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows - Notation supports 12/8, 9/8, and 6/8 time signatures! Press the new button in the Notation window and selecting one of the time signatures from the list!

Other Notation Window Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box 2018 for Windows include:

Duplicate previous group of notes: This lets you quickly duplicate the previous chord (a group of notes on the same location) without having to reenter it. This is a menu option added to the context menu in the Notation window.

Delete highlighted Red Notes: This lets you delete all notes that are currently highlighted in red. This command is also added to the context menu in the Notation window.

The vertical position of a dot of a dotted rest has been adjusted. A dot used to be drawn a staff line, but it is now drawn between staff lines.

Improved algorithms are now used for drawing slurs. A slur will be drawn with a Bezier curve, which is especially helpful for notes being very close together.

When loading a MusicXML file, if more than 20% of notes are triplet notes, then the overall beat resolution is automatically set to 3 in the Notation Window.

The Staff Roll mode now has a context menu.
