If I have a song with a specific style and I know of a style I want to substitute How do I do it? Can't I just type in _SWOON somewhere and have it pop up instead of having to scroll thru a hundred styles to find it

Yes. I think you can.

I entered _SWOON into the BIAB StylePicker filter string box after clearing the list and it found the _SWOON Style with the only other entry being the current selection that I have set to -on- in my preferences. Make sure the Include Similar box is unchecked.

Charlie, I tried what you said. I made a list of about 10 styles I thought promising when I inputed the song over the weekend. Now I want to change the style. If I put a style in as you say it works if the style has an = sign before the style. If the style has an _ it doesn't work. Inputting _SWOON as you did doesn't work. I only upgraded last week and I have been having problems with it seems the upgrade. Do you think it would help to reinstall the software. I am unsure of doing this because of the problems I have corrected already. BIll

Hi Bill,

Entering _SWOON works here OK.

Two things to try:

1: Try pressing the Clear button first

2: Perform a rebuild of the Styles and RealTracks (Rebuild button at the bottom of the StylePicker form)

Hello bmolle,

Welcome to Band-in-a-Box (BiaB) and to the forum!

Are you using a non English language keyboard setting? I believe the BiaB program expects keyboard input code from a standard 104 key keyboard. I suspect your keyboard does not have the underline character "_" in a standard keyboard location so the two digit code sent from your keyboard to the program is not the two digit code transmitted by a standard 104 key keyboard. This sometimes happens with laptops that don't have a full set of keys.

Doesn't do it. Still the same as before. I cant find any styles that I previously wrote down that begin with _. I got all the Biab CDs yesterday and I am going to try overwriting the program. You guys are great. Thanks. PGMusic tech support sucks and always has.

Bill,
What happens if you omit the leading underscore and just type the letters 'SWO' ?
Do you see the style in the list (as shown in the attachment below)?

What package did you purchase (Pro, MegaPak, UltraPak etc)?

IF I omit the underscore it finds nothing.

I have 8 styles on my list of possibilities. The style picker window cant find any of them. I have 3 = styles on my list. The style picker window finds all three.

I searched for SWOON and two other _ styles in the program folder bb. The search found nothing. I searched for the three = styles and found only one =BGPOP.STY in the styles folder but not the other two. All three of the = styles can be found when scrolling down the list of styles in the styles window but the _ styles are not found when scrolling.

This is about the end of my knowledge of computer software so now I think I will reinstall the program unless you have other advice. My original install was from download but I bought the discs so I will reinstall from them.

The upgrade has made changes to the program that I don't think it should have. If the reinstall doesn't fix it I will wipe it out and start with a 2014 install and see if I can install only the styles from 2019.

I bought the MegaPak upgrade.

Hope this gives you some ideas for me to try.

THanks Bill

It seems that I can pick a style from the list of styles window, move up to the top of the list and type in that style
in the filter window. It comes up with maybe one or two others. IF I type in DREAMER it come up at the top and the other style is the one that is currently in the song. No others appear in the style window. I am beginning to think that all these styles that I have on my list of possibilities with a _ have vanished from the program.

Does anyone know where the styles reside in BIAB and can I just find them on the disc and copy them in?

Bill

Bill,

I appreciate you providing the additional information about your computer keyboard. I'm sorry my solution wasn't appropriate to your situation.


The StylePicker lists styles present in the X:\bb\Styles folder where X is the drive letter Band-in-a-Box resides on. Is it possible the _SWOON style maybe stored elsewhere on your computer?

I see we both were typing at the same time.

If you navigate to the root drive where Band-in-a-Box resides you can initiate a search for _SWOON by entering the term in the search text box located at the top of the window or press Ctrl + F to open a search bar at the bottom of the screen.

Bill,

I performed a search of the RealCombo styles listed for the Mega PAK on +++ THIS +++ PG Music webpage and _SWOON is not listed so it maybe a N/A (not included) style

It worked for me to find _SWOON, but the above screens do not show the whole entry: it is RealTrack #289 from Country Group #43.

Perhaps that's not in the MegaPak. It might have been a Bonus Pak style?

Hi
The style _SWOON uses tracks from the realtracks 289 set do you have this?

I use BIAB 2019 ultra build.

Mike

Thanks all. Let me work thru all you have put up. I also want to say that _SWOON was on a list I made after I inputted the song chords and I had listened to all the styles on the list I made so the style _SWOON was in the MegaPack that I got for the PGMusic upgrade. As were the other 8 _ styles I cant find and the 3 = styles I can find. I believe there was a Bonus Pak included but I will have to check on that.

Thanks Bill

I guess a further question to ask is how did you perform the upgrade? Did you install it over the top of the existing 2014 install or did you choose a different location to install 2019 to? Or possibly another method, e.g. deleted 2014 and installed 2019?

Another thought: Select the Help drop-down menu and select Utilities > Run Cleanup Routine.
After that, Rebuild the StylePicker and see what you have available.

In addition to all above...

Have you opened Stylepicker and rebuilt the list of styles? This needs to be done after upgrades and also after updates. (Apologies if this has already been mentioned.)

Hope I have all the questions answered.

_SWOON is not stored in bb or on C

Style disc lists STYLE 43. In fact I have all of them to 77 I think

Under Real Track sets I have RealTrack 289 and Real Track 43

There is no Bonus Pak that I can see in the download but I did get a Registration Bonus as part of the package. It was the MegaPak upgrade for prior to 2017.

For the upgrade install I just followed the prompts and made no changes. I did the BIAB cleanup routine and rebuild and there has been no change.

Thanks all, Bill

Hi Bill,

When you installed the software, did you direct the installation to your existing \bb folder?

Alternatively, did you create a new folder for it or are you running it from a USB drive?

From reading what is written, it sounds like something might have gone awry in the installation process.

Regards,
Noel
