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
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:
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!
-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.
