Hi all.
Does anyone know whether BIAB 2020 works ok with Big Sur? My Mac is nagging me to update. When I updated to Catalina from the previous OS my BIAB was no longer compatible with the new OS, so I'm reluctant to upgrade until I know my version will work.
Thanks.

Yep, many things don’t work. Notation not at all, and you can’t even kill off the blank screen. I’d hold off if you could. I unfortunately had ‘Auto Update’ on and while most everything else works fine, BIAB does not...

You may get a quicker response by posting this in the "BIAB for Macintosh" forum.

Band-in-a-Box for Mac supports Mac OS X 10.6 to 10.15, and does not yet support Big Sur. We do not recommend upgrading to Big Sur at this time as there are some issues for which we have no workaround - this includes crashes, graphical glitches, and the aforementioned Notation not working. There will be announcements and a build update when these compatibility issues are resolved, likely sometime in December.

Some people are getting along mostly ok on Big Sur though.

Thanks. I don't get on the forum often, so I apologise for not posting in the right forum.

What is management's philosophy on this? Do they plan to make a fix or downloadable upgrade to 2020 or will users all have to move to (and buy) 2021?

I've been told they're working on a patch for Big Sur, though I'm not in development so I don't know how that's progressing at the moment.

Just downloaded latest upgrade, 420. Feb 21 2021
[Website says there is a build 422 but I can't access it through updates].
Build 420 does not have notation, lead sheet, or print functions in Big Sur.
I think I wasted my time and money... its now months since this was first observed on the forum... still not working despite website saying latest version is Big Sur compatible..

I am having the same problem. I can't do any for the notation, lead sheet, or print functions on Big Sur. When will this be fixed?

On another forum thread, BIAB for Macintosh, there is a discussion thread. I found the new build, 422, still beta, under BIAB web homepage > support tab. It works. It is not accessed by looking for upgrades/new builds through your BIAB mac software. So... good news! Apologies for the rant above.

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.
