I know that it is possible to not show tablature by selecting the option in the "Notation Window Options" window but this choice is discarded when you close the program so it has to be reselected every time the program is restarted. My practice time is limited enough as it is, so I would rather not have to waste time repeatedly switching off tablature!

I have subsequently found that if I change some other option, the display of TAB is reinstated. This wastes yet more time having to switch the tablature display off again to be able to read the notation clearly!

BBB, thanks for your kind words!

In the early stages of using the program, I find that I am frequently changing options, partly to find out what the various options actually do and partly to help me use the program effectively. Having to then switch off tablature each time is cumulatively time wasting and frustrating.
Your estimate of 30 seconds is probably excessive, but on that basis if I made say 10 changes to the options in a 30 minute practice session that would reduce my available practice time by over 16%. I'd just rather spend that 5 minutes doing something more constructive and less frustrating.

I also think it would be a generally useful improvement in the program for all users if it remembered the settings from one session to the next. I can't think of any other software I use regularly that needs to have a basic display setting re-entered each time the program starts or has another (unrelated) setting changed.

I am genuinely puzzled why you think that sarcasm is the best response to a constructive suggestion. If you have a positive reason why it is a good thing that TAB is re-instated at every possible opportunity I would be interested to hear it.

Review - Loops-with-Style PAK 2 for Band-in-a-Box® 2020

"Dr. Dave" Walker is at it again! You may remember his recent reviews of both Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac and Xtra Styles PAK 9 - now he has something to say about our Loops-with-Style PAK 2 - check it out: Click here to read...

With money being tight for most musicians, this is a wonderful gift for those on a limited budget. At $29, it offers months and years of fun and experimentation, bringing many ideas to fruition as songs with enough variation so that your audience doesn’t jump to "aw, that's a computer!" while still keeping the power of the software in your hands.
-"Dr. Dave" Walker

Thank you again Dr. Dave for the great review!
