The menu item 'Options | Return to factory settings' is working in my testing. This returns most global settings to the defaults.

An alternative way you can return to factory settings is:


1. Close Band-in-a-Box. Open the Band-in-a-Box folder and duplicate the Preferences subfolder. To duplicate a folder, you can select it and press Command+D. You can give it a descriptive name like 'Preferences_backup_nov1' and keep it around just in case you need those files for some reason (the exact name doesn't matter).

2. Open the "Preferences" folder, and trash all the files within it. To do this, you can press Command-A (select all), then Comand-Delete (move to trash). It doesn't matter if you delete the "AboutPrefsFolder.txt" file.

If you want to restore your previous settings in the future, rename your backed up folder to "Preferences".

I remembered reading this going through the manual. Here it is:

From Page 10, Chapter 1: Welcome to Band-in-a-Box!, 2019 Band-in-a-Box Mac User Manual.

"The Preferences you set in the program are saved in the Preferences folder, and this folder also has a file named Intrface.BBM with all the program settings including MIDI and audio driver setup. If this file is removed to the trash the program will open like a new installation the next time it runs. It will prompt for all initial setup selections. This is useful as a “global reset” if there are system settings that have been changed by accident."

49 of Your Problems Solved with Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows!

With Band-in-a-Box® 2020 for Windows, there are 50+ new features, 202 RealTracks, and more!

We get ideas for the new features and new RealTracks from program users- there are several sources: our Wishlist and general forum, support phone calls, trade shows, etc. In most cases, customers are not describing a new feature – they are describing a problem they have that they would like to have solved.

This is a list of our features and additions in Band-in-a-Box® 2020, presented from a unique perspective. It is from this customer list of "problems they would like solved." These are not exact quotes, they are paraphrased from our discussions with our customers. They explain what problems and requests they discussed with us, that resulted in the various new features and RealTracks. Hopefully this answers the question "why did you add this feature/content?"

So, without further ado, here are the 49 requests/problems that we (hopefully) have solved with the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2020: click here to review.
