I have made the song timing the way it is supposed to be (I believe) .
But the timing shown in the notation is not correct while in
"regular notation mode".

The timing shown in the notation is shown correctly while in "editable notation mode".

The video is here: https://youtu.be/wMUnuSi-a5c

In the video I switch back and forth between the two notation modes.

I want the correct timing to show in the regular notation mode, because I am making play-along videos.

Lesley,

Have you tried setting the time signature display using the button shown below in the upper image. This is only a cosmetic display. (I anticipate that this will not do the job for you but it's worth trying.)

The way you've notated the notes is equivalent to have a 6/4 time signature in one bar of BIAB's 4/4. This is certainly a clever way to imitate 6/8 from a notation perspective.

When I notated triplets like you have and switched to normal display, all was well. See the lower image below. This leads me to believe that there is a setting in your notation options that's causing the issue.

Can you make the MGU file available for download so that I can have a look at it?

Regards,
Noel

Changing the setting to 12/8 or 6/8 (split barline) using the button you indicate does change the non-editable notation. I think it makes it correct. But it is very peculiar looking timing, and difficult to read.

Can I email you the file?

Hi Lesley,

If you upload the file to Dropbox and then paste the Dropbox link into a private message to me, the file will not be available to anyone else but me.

Access to private messages is found under the "My Stuff" heading at the top of the webpage (between "Latest Topics" and "Users").

Regards,
Noel

Hi Lesley,

I've just sent you back a modified file in a private message. See if it's any good. It's works for me using BIAB 2019 (64-bit).

What I did was....

1. set the notation "Opt" (#1 on image) settings as shown on the image below -- of these settings disabling auto tick off-set and setting the tick offset to 0 are important (#3, #4), as well as triplet resolution (#2).

I also removed the bar settings since these all seemed to be setting each bar to 4/4. This is not required since the original time signature is 4/4.

Hope this helps,
Noel

Thanks Noel! That works, using your file, and changing the option settings as you indicated.
It also works with my original file, with the setting changes.


Thanks again!

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.
