When I try to look song's guitar tabluature, BiaB shows bass ( four string ) format of tabulature. Is this error or is there some settings how to change to guitar ( six string ) format.

Experimenting with it now, using Biab 2019 for Mac (309), I think I can recreate what you experience:

1. Open the Guitar window, Select the Bass track in the Guitar windows, and it correctly displays 4 strings.
2. Close the Guitar window, then open it again.
3. Select the Guitar track within the Guitar window, and it erroneously displays 6 strings but using only the 4 bass strings.

Luckily, the workaround is easy: Just close the Guitar window (while the Guitar track is still selected), then open it up again. It will now display correctly.

Hence I think the problem can be summarized as: If the Guitar window is opened with the Bass track preselected, it won't correctly switch between the Guitar and Bass tracks correctly.

Hope that helps you. PG Music: Will this qualify as a Bug report, or should I formally file a bug elsewhere?

Yes thanks for the report. Perhaps that's the problem that xzot was describing, since the Bass track should be the only track showing Bass tab in the notation window.
