Thanks for creating the videos and posting links. Changing time signature is a common question in both the Band-in-a-Box and RealBand forum sections.

Hi...thanks for the question and video's on changing the time signature within a song.
Is there another step to this because it doesn't work when I do it.

I'm changing the bar settings on one bar to 2 beats and then back to 4 for the rest of the tune. What happens is the music plays for just two beats and then stops while beat three and four are silent but still there. When it gets to the next measure the music picks back up but the highlighted curser (black)is moving 2 beats ahead of what I'm hearing. So I'm not getting the 2/4 effect because it still carries on as if it's still in 4. I just have music in the bar of 2, and beats 3 and 4 play but no sound.

I hope i explained it so my question could be understood. Any ideas?
