Hi all,
Lately I seem to be having difficulty with Realband. Whenever I action certain commands - notably render, save a file, open a new file - Realband disappears from the screen and I have to click the icon on the Windows taskbar to bring it back.

Anyone got any thoughts?

All help gratefully received by this non-tech savvy guy

Regards

Phil

Phil,

Are you talking RB 2018?

Also, do you have the latest build installed?

http://www.pgmusic.com/support.realband.htm

To check, build... have a look under "Help | About Realband". The update number will be in brackets following the year version of Realband.

Lastly, Does it make any difference if you start RB by right-clicking on the shortcut and selecting "Run as administrator"?

Regards,
Noel

Hi. Yes I have 2018 with the latest update. But this is a problem that began before the update and is continuing after applying the it.

I always start up the program as administrator. Since seeing your reply I am have tried Not running the program as an administrator. That seemed to make no difference. However, when I set it to run in compatability mode with Windows 8, everything suddenly seems OK!

I'm using 64 bit Windows (if that has any consequence - sorry well out of my technical knowledge base here!).

Thoughts?

Regards

Phil

Thanks for letting us know what seems to have worked for you.
That's a new finding as far as I know. Good detective work.

Since W8 is available as a compatibility mode I assume you are running W10 (?)

Yep running Windows 10 64 bit.

I think the last time I remotely understood what I was doing was with Windows XP!

Regards

Phil

Very interesting sleuth work Phil.

Well worth keeping in mind.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now available for The Melody and Soloist tracks.
•Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. (Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on The line.)
•Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
•The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
•There's a keystroke entry notation mode - the 'N' mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
•You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When The dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current Notation track.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
