How to stop BB from adding several extra measures... - 08/06/20 09:55 AM

Please help this newbie! Whenever I start a new normal (AABA usually) song, BB adds 2 or 3 bars at the end, sort of like a tag ending, when I don't want them. I can mute the bars, but then the song ends quite abruptly. What can I do to end the song where I want it to end?
Thanks!

Open Song Settings (Ctrl-N)
Uncheck the Generate 2 Bar ending for this song box

----
Ways to End your song

Assume last bar of song is 32

Extend 4 or more additional bars beyond where the song will end

If you Want your song to end with a hold and ring out, in bar 32 enter your final chord with 3 dots following it ( C... )

You can also have additional bland bars beyond where the song will end and fade out

Hope this helps
