Just unzip in the folder:
c:/bb2018(or 2019/CustomSkins

If anyone have tried on bb2019 let me know.

Edit:
Then Right click in the chord-sheet area
click on skin=>(you'll see them if you have unzipped them in the correct folder.) and click on it for to use them.

Let me now if it's not clear because english is not my primary language...

Greetings Willy6996,

Both of the screen shots you presented look vary pretty. Here are clickable links users can use instead of the copy and paste links you posted:

+++ Good Old Days +++

[url= https://mega.nz/#!jgVw0aDC!Je9ij5UF5voUZGoP0xoUPrpBU_PjVVDaFnWeV0_RW8k]+++ METRO +++[/url]

I've downloaded both zip files onto my desktop. I unzipped both archive files and noticed you have sub folders for both Windows and Mac computers.

You indicated in a second post the folders should be moved to the Band-in-a-Box folder. Okay, then what? How does a user select which skin they want? How does a user revert back to the standard skin?

I have 2019 Band-in-a-Box. Will your 2018 splash screen replace the 2019 splash screen?

Hi Jim Fogle,
I have edited the second post who show how to apply skins.

For the splash screen it 'll show 2018 version only if you choose my skin but you can replace it manually with the 2019 version you have (located in the image folder)


Edit:
For unknown reason i can't edit the others post so:

Just unzip Metro & good old days in the folder:
c:/bb2018(or 2019)/CustomSkins


Then Right click in the chord-sheet area
click on:
==> display options
Then on the new windows at the bottom left there's a button labbelled "choose skin"
Here you 'll see my skins if you have unzipped in the correct folder .

You can revert back to default choosing simply "default"

Thanks for the links but something is wrong with the second one wink

No I haven't. Although I've downloaded and unzipped the files I am reluctant to test on a working copy of the program until I better understand what I'm doing.

I assume you are replacing default image files with files you have customized. How did you add a command under "Display Options". What steps is the command taking?

You just need to make a backup of the Customskin folder so if something is wrong you can revert back without problems.

I don't add a command.

There's a button on the "display options" window of BB who is called: "choose skin" ,just click on it.

It show you how to at 9mn45s:

Hello! I can´t seem to find the folder to install the skins into. I have no folder called "custom skins" in biab 2019. Is that a sub folder that I have missed?

C:\bb\Data\CustomSkins

They have added a PANELS folder now that lets you change the color under the full screen mode buttons.
When I made all the compact mode buttons they never had this so I should be able to make the same buttons for the full screen mode now but I can't find the background image for the rollover button (the light gray) the File buttons background color is big-panel-file.bmp:

Yeah, I found out there is no rollover image so I just made the background behind the icon the same color as the PANELS instead of the chroma key pink and 1 pixel smaller so it gives a boarder on rollover:

Hi Willy6996. Are the skins you presented above designed for Windows or Apple?

By the way i have checked and there's no file for the "over button"

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows was released in December 2018, and included many new features and enhancements - like the enhancements we made to our Notation window!

These include:
-Pressing the space bar plays the song from the current location.
-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.
-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.
-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 it.
-In the Notation Windows Options dialog, the clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
-The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
-You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
-A new track type (Drums) is available for the Melody and Soloist tracks.
-Holding down the Ctrl key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
-There's a keystroke entry 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.
-A new button in the Print Options dialog lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the Chord Sheet.
-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.


There's detailed information on our 2019 notation enhancements here: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 New Feature - Notation Enhancements

Jump to the Notation topic in our Band-in-a-Box® 2019 new features video.

My Favorite Things - Nudge Chords in Band-in-a-Box®

Love this time saving feature.

Ever fill in the chordsheet fully or for part of song, and then discover you want to add or take away an extra beat or more somewhere in the chordsheet.

Nudge chords (melody) from the Edit Menu is your friend here, the dialog will give you all the options either to remove or add beats where its needed.

Love it.
