This issue has been going on for awhile but I'm finally annoyed enough to report the issue.

Many times while scrolling I'll come across messages that have been updated. When I click on such a post the screen opens to the first, unread post.

Unfortunately,the top of the post is chopped off! I have to use my mouse to reposition the post to be able to read the post. The screen shots below illustrate my complaint.

My computer is Windows 7 Home Edition and my browser is Firefox.

Jim, I am having the same issue. It's not a show stopper but it sure is a PITA.

PS - I am using Firefox also.

Andrew,

The forum thread posts seem to be positioning properly now. I've looked at multiple threads and each has opened at the first, unread post and each post is positioned so I can see the top of the post. Thank you for quickly correcting the issue!

Mario,

How is the forum working for you now?

Unfortunately now on my iPad all threads default to the first post? In other words it doesn't go to the first of the unread posts.

Seems this began happening about the same time this threads issue said fixed.

Bummer!

I'm getting the same thing - it doesn't go to the "new" post, but to the first post in the series and then have to scroll to find the new material, but having to review existing material to see if already read.

Jim, it has returned here also.

{Edit} A little experimenting has shown that on a new message everything is fine but when opening a message that has been read the problem happens. In other words I can open a new message and all is well. If I close that message then reopen it the problem happens. Weird!

Mario,
Perhaps an important clue. I had not noticed the distinction until you mentioned it. Thanks for the additional description!

Andrew,

As of today, April 06, 2019 I'm continuing to experience issues with the first unread message aligning correctly while using up-to-date Firefox.

I don't know why that would be. Try refreshing using Ctrl+F5?

SongPicker Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac!

The Band-in-a-Box® SongPicker has been enhanced with our newest 2020 version!

The SongPicker now builds faster for large song lists (>30K and up to 60,000 songs). The [Song] button (or the [Open] button) now has 3 additional menu items to launch the SongPicker.

- Open SongPicker in Current Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the current folder of the last loaded song.
- Open SongPicker in Home Folder: This opens the SongPicker in the home folder, which is Applications/Band-in-a-Box/MySongs or as set in the SongPicker.
- Open SongPicker in Favorite Folder: This launches the Favorite Folder dialog which allows you to choose any previously used folder where a song was loaded from, and then open the SongPicker in that folder.

In the SongPicker, there is a new “Open in Home” option. If this is enabled, the SongPicker will always open in the home folder instead of the current folder when you press the default [Song] button to open the SongPicker.

Searching for songs matching a chord progression or melody has been enhanced. There are three new checkboxes: "Key must match exactly," "Chord Extension must match exactly", and "Time Signature must match."

Click here to jump to the SongPicker subject in our New Features video to learn more. (32:11)

(read more about this feature in our Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac Online Upgrade Manual.)

Thanks for sharing, Pipeline!

New "Feature Browser" in Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac

Band-in-a-Box® has so many features! We add 50 new ones with every version, so you may have forgotten all the different things that Band-in-a-Box® can do. Fortunately, with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2020 we've solved this issue by added a Feature Browser!

How does it work? Access this feature by clicking on the [?] button on the main screen of the program or pressing the / Enter keys on the Chord Sheet. This dialog lists many features of the program and allows you to browse them, find the feature by text filter, read descriptions about the feature, find how to launch the feature, access to the online information or video about the feature, and do more.

Examples of a few situations where this feature is helpful:

-You know about a feature but don't know how to find it. Just type a part of the feature name and you'll see the hotkeys, menu, and toolbar info on how to launch it. For example, if you want to launch the Chord Builder but don’t know how to do it, type "builder" in the text filter, and you will quickly find the Chord Builder.
-You are exploring available features for Band-in-a-Box. For example, if you are a guitar player, type the word "guitar" and you'll see what's available.
-You prefer "one-stop-shopping" and would like to launch features from the same dialog.
-You are learning the program and like to browse or watch videos about topics you're interested in.
You can't remember hotkeys and want to review them.

Watch this new feature in action when you jump to the subject in our New Features video: 10:20 - New Feature - Feature Browser

(read more about this feature in our Band-in-a-Box 2020 for Mac Online Upgrade Manual.)

Videos - 202 New RealTracks for Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac®!
