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!

Mike

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?

PG Music News
New with Band-in-a-Box® 2020 - MultiRiffs!

This feature was initially offered with the VST DAW Plugin, and now it's available directly in Band-in-a-Box®! MultiRiffs allows you to quickly generate 7 variations of either a portion of the track (which would generate 7 variations of "Riffs" of a four-bar guitar solo), or the whole song with 7 variations that are generated to play different material at all times.

Read all about this feature here, or check out our New Features Video (46:00) to see it in action!

Live Interview Today at 1pm PST - Aaron Short & PG Music's Tobin!

Check out Aaron Short's YouTube Channel today at 1pm PST for a LIVE interview with PG Music's Tobin!

Aaron's interview with Tobin is guaranteed to be entertaining and informative - it's a great opportunity to learn a little bit about the history of Band-in-a-Box!

We hope you can check it out! Click here for Aaron's YouTube Channel.

If not, don't worry - it will be available for viewing on his channel after the live event.

#TipTuesday - The Band-in-a-Box® 2020 Feature Browser

Don't forget about the new Feature Browser added to Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac! (and Windows)

This feature is GREAT to help you locate a feature within the program!

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.

Read more about this new feature here, or watch the video.

#TBT Band-in-a-Box® 2017

Three years ago we were just rounding up our BETA testers to help finish up the testing of our Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Mac!

With that version, we redesigned the main screen GUI, added support for popular .SFZ sound format as well as PG Music’s Hi-Q sounds (sforzando SFZ Synth.), added Natural Arrangements options and Hi-Q Guitar RealCharts, applied many, many, many enhancements to the existing powerful program features, and more! Read all about Band-in-a-Box® 2017 here.

Now, three years later, we're thrilled to say that we're already done BETA testing, and weeks into the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Mac release! Of course, that means we're having a SALE on Upgrade packages, but only until April 30th!

Band-in-a-Box® - Trombone RealTracks!

Happy National Trombone Players Day!

To all the trombone players out there - this is a day to celebrate you (no joke...)! Not a trombone player? Good news - if you have the Band-in-a-Box® UltraPAK, UltraPAK+ or Audiophile Edition, you have a two AMAZING trombone players in your band already!
