Is anyone else having this problem. Open Band in a box, File / Open song.

I can make the Finder window size larger / smaller from the top or bottom of the window, but I can only make it larger not smaller horizontally.

This I found after my first post about the odd purpleish background colour showing in Title and Style which dylanw also found in the mixer window.

Band-in-a-Box runs on Big Sur, however we are working on some compatibility issues. The main issues are graphical (purple colors on the toolbar and mixer, and slow redraws). There is also a problem with the Notation window and Lead sheet windows not working. It would be prudent to delay upgrading to Big Sur until we have had a chance to look into these issues further.

Same here, I didn’t anticipate there being a problem like the 64 bit upgrade. Having said that things in general seem to be working ok, just niggly stuff.

If you guys don't mind, it will help us if you provide your system specifications - please click on the Apple menu in the upper left and select About This Mac, then provide us with the information on the Overview tab (or even better, upload a couple screenshots - you can press Cmd-Shift-4 to select an area for screenshot).

Just upgraded to Big Sur and my Notation window isn't working.

Here's my info:
MacBook Air (Retina, 13-inch, 2018)
1,6 GHz Dual-Core Intel Core i5
8 GB 2133 MHz LPDDR3
Intel UHD Graphics 617 1536 MB

Are there any workarounds in the meantime?

Yea i've mostly got the graphical stuff like was mentioned above. Considering that I've had every OS since 2000 and I though that Catalina was FAR and away the worst of that time I was very ready to try Big Sur... I often wait for the .1 update but not this time...

Yea i had an issue with the notation view today but generally its all functioning as far as I can tell.

I installed this successfully on the new MacBook Pro with M1 chip but it won't open again after the initial install. Should I assume that the M1 chip isn't supported yet?

Yes, the Notation issue is a known problem. It worked properly in the pre-release version of Big Sur, but not on the official release (which we don't get in advance - we get it the same day you do).

The M1 chip is not officially supported yet, but from our testing Rosetta 2 typically works well - we have one of the ARM Mac Mini's in the office.

If you don't mind, would you be able to email some files to us so we can try and find a better fix? If you go to to Applications/Band-in-a-Box/Preferences, please attach those to an email and send them to support@pgmusic.com for our developers to analyze. Then, to solve the crash issue, delete the contents of the Preferences folder (after emailing the files to us) and try running BIAB again.

I sent them to you Simon..
Update--After deleting the Preference folder twice ---BIAB seems to be working with the M1 and Big Sur. The color is off a little as indicated above

Im very confused cause I have used BIAB many times since the Big Sur update and it functioned. Now all the sudden it refuses to open at all.

This seems to be a common issue with Big Sur users, that BIAB will work then suddenly not work. The fix is as I mentioned above; to remove the preferences files from Applications/Band-in-a-Box/Preferences although this will likely continue to be temporary until we get it fixed more permanently.
