HOW TO: Post an image of BIAB's chordsheet to a forum - 05/09/18 03:10 PM

Sometimes, when it comes to solving problems relating to BIAB's playback of songs, it's useful for forum users to be able to see a screenshot of BIAB's chordsheet in 'Standard View'. It can help greatly with solving the problem.

To create and then post such an image....

First (capture a screen shot as JPG)
These instructions are for Windows.

1. Open the problem song.

2. Switch to standard BIAB view (if you are in 'full screen' view) by pressing CTRL+T.

3. Press 'Print Screen' on your keyboard.

4. Open Microsoft 'Paint' (or any other graphic program).

5. Use CTRL+V to paste the image on the clipboard into Paint.

6. Save the image in Paint as a JPG.


Second (posting the image to a forum)

Now visit the thread below and follow the instructions to post the image.

The above replaces FIRST above.

Win 10
Win 10 has a "snipping tool" for capturing screen shots. Find it and put a shortcut where you want it. Once you discover this little nugget you will likely use it frequently.

Use the snipping tool to capture whatever part of the screen you wish. Then save the image to a directory. It will name it "capture.jpg". I put the single image file on my desktop and overwrite the old one each time I create a new one.

Now go to SECOND above
