Sometimes, when it comes to solving problems relating to BIAB's playback of songs, it's useful for forum users to be able to see a screenshot of BIAB's chordsheet in 'Standard View'. It can help greatly with solving the problem.

To create and then post such an image....

First (capture a screen shot as JPG)
These instructions are for Windows.

1. Open the problem song.

2. Switch to standard BIAB view (if you are in 'full screen' view) by pressing CTRL+T.

3. Press 'Print Screen' on your keyboard.

4. Open Microsoft 'Paint' (or any other graphic program).

5. Use CTRL+V to paste the image on the clipboard into Paint.

6. Save the image in Paint as a JPG.

Second (posting the image to a forum)

Now visit the thread below and follow the instructions to post the image.

The above replaces FIRST above.

Win 10
Win 10 has a "snipping tool" for capturing screen shots. Find it and put a shortcut where you want it. Once you discover this little nugget you will likely use it frequently.

Use the snipping tool to capture whatever part of the screen you wish. Then save the image to a directory. It will name it "capture.jpg". I put the single image file on my desktop and overwrite the old one each time I create a new one.

Now go to SECOND above

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
