How to Reorganise my Song List - 02/01/19 07:11 AM

I'm having trouble trying to get my song list in order by name on BIAB 2018 for Mac. I would love to know how to get this fixed.

Hello Islandsoul,

In the 2018 Mac version of Band-in-a-Box, the SongPicker list is organized automatically by file name.
To sort them, you'd just need to name your files within the destination folder accordingly. This is done outside of Band-in-a-Box.

1. Open the folder that the songs are located in and rename them using numbers based on the order you want to display:

For example

01 songtitle
02 songtitle
03 songtitle
04 songtitle

2. Open Band-in-a-Box and go to your SongPicker - select the correct folder, and press "Rebuild List".

We'll also add a Wish List request to have an option that enables sorting the Song List alphabetically in future Mac versions of Band-in-a-Box.

Hope this helps!
