Have biab 2019 windows. In melody input under edit mode can't get an F natural in the key of D. I've tried shift and control key. Any ideas. I couldn't find anything in documentation on accidentals.

Have you tried right clicking on the note to set the accidental?

In Editable Notation Mode, right click on the note and you’ll see an option.

Just curious, are you saying you only get an F#?

It's definitely working here with both the <Alt> key or right-clicking and editing.

Make sure you are in Editable Notation Mode.

You can also left click on the note with your mouse and move it down to an F natural.

I tried left clicking and dragging. It goes directly from E to F#.

You have to move the mouse in small increments. In notation mode there is a box in the tool bar that tells you what the note you are on clicked on is ("A 7" for example). That changes as you move the mouse.

Hope this helps.

I tend to move in larger increments, i.e. drop or raise the note several pitches, then drag it to what I want. I find it easier, but whatever works.

Did you try right-clicking and editing the note value? You can then specify the exact note you want.

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.
