#448312 - 12/31/17 06:44 PM [Band-in-a-Box for Windows] Bug in Right-Clicking Selected Bars

When I select several bars, as shown below,



and then right-click on the first bar in the selection to choose an action to perform on those bars (such as copy or delete), all bars except the bar you right-clicked on will be deselected. This seems to happen almost all of the time although I have seen it not happen when I was trying to reproduce it and check for any patterns in bar selection. This happens in BIAB 2018 and 2017 (not sure about before that).

And before someone can say "just click a different bar", yes, I know I can do that but it is natural to select and then right-click the beginning of a selection so this is a bug that needs to be addressed.

John,

BIAB 2018 (508) here. When I just tried this, it worked for me whichever bar I clicked.

Regards,
Noel

Thanks Noel but it is definitely happening to me. Not every time but definitely once or more in every session. I suspect if you try this several times it will happen to you as well.

1) click and drag to select a few bars
2) with those bars selected right-click on the first selected bar
3) sometimes this will cause everything that was selected to be deselected

As I said this is not new to 2018...it has been there with 2017. And it is not unique to my setup. I just tried it twice on my old computer running BIAB 2017 build 463 and the first time it was fine and the second time it deselected bars.

Wild guess: are your mouse drivers up to date?

Same exact bug on two different computers...two different mice...two different versions of BIAB...two different versions of Windows...all drivers up to date.

JJJ:
I get the same as Noel.
I started with a "new" file and typed in your chords into the same bars as you have.
I used the mouse to click on bar 1 and drag down to bar 11 to highlight those bars.
I right click on bar 1 (the cells stay highlighted) and select Copy.
I right click on bar 12 (cells are still highlighted) and select Paste. They plunk right in there.
I tried it a few times that way, and a few times highlighting the cells and using the Copy and Paste functions on the Edit dropdown menu. Same result. It works.

Only thing different on mine is the style but I wouldn't suspect that to have any bearing on anything.
Do you think it would help if you put your song file someplace where we could get at it to do some testing?

I have seen song files done some strange things in BIAB if they get corrupted somehow. I recreated as much as I could with your screen shot and everything work OK on my end. I was able to highlight, right click and past in blank measures.

Rename your original one and try recreating the file again from scratch to see what happens.

Thanks Lloyd and jcland! I appreciate your help!

But it is not at all related to any specific song file. It happens with any song old or new or even with no song at all like this,

Sorry, I can't duplicate the problem here.
I tried a brand new file, left click and drag to highlight,
then no matter which half of which bar I right click in, I can't get BIAB to deselect the selection.

I'm baffled.
I'll watch this thread to see if you get it resolved.
Good luck!

Thanks again Lloyd! I may have to just live with it. Not that big of a problem.

RealBand 2019 - A New Look!

Have you opened up your RealBand 2019 yet? You may notice that we've given it a fresh new look! In fact, there are now 3 different looks to RealBand.

See for yourself! Within the program, visit Options | Icon Set and choose from: Classic, Modern 1, or Modern 2.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!

NEW! Style-style-style Additions and Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

With over 64 new features and enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019, we've made sure to add to, enhance, and update some of the Style features within the program: StylePicker, StyleMaker, and Song Titles browser within the StylePicker!

StylePicker Enhancements:
-If the style list needs rebuild, it tells you that within the StylePicker, instead of a message that requires a response.
-The rebuild is faster than before by 75%. It takes 1/4 of the time now.
-While the style list is being rebuilt, you can see the progress inside the StylePicker.
-The style list can be filtered by a specific RealTracks/RealDrums/MIDI SuperTracks or RealTracks/MIDI SuperTracks in a certain number range.
-You can filter the style list by a specific Xtra Styles PAK.
-The dialog to select an Xtra Styles PAK has a button to take you to the PG Music website that shows information about Xtra Styles PAKs.
-The StylePicker can list all styles (including N/A styles) in the default display.
-The Set number display is improved, including sort by type and Xtra styles.

StyleMaker Improvements:

-The new MIDI velocity offset allows you to make styles with altered loudness for MIDI tracks.
-Styles can be saved with information like a memo, examples, genres, and more, which will be displayed in the StylePicker.
-You can import information from another style. This is useful when you are making a similar style.
-A style can have a huge number of RealTracks (up to 70!) because the StyleMaker now supports RealTracks multi/medley feature, which allows a single track to have up to 10 simultaneous playing of RealTracks.

Song Titles Browser Enhancement

-We’ve added 300 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now over 10,600 titles.
-The chord density filter is available, and it’s also displayed in the memo.
-The chord complexity filter is available.
