Global bar offset for sync playback

Copy/Paste to/from Band-in-a-Box®
Plugin now supports copy/paste special to/from Band-in-a-Box®. Paste Special from Band-in-a-Bo®x to the Plugin using the "Paste Special" option in the chord sheet context menu or with Ctrl+Shift+V.
1. Copying from the Plugin to Band-in-a-Box®
- Highlight the bars of your song in the chord sheet and use Ctrl+C or right-click "Copy" to copy the region.
- Go to Band-in-a-Box® -> Edit -> Paste Special to paste the contents from the Plugin into Band-in-a-Box®.
