Hi Fozzie1410, I'm afraid we still do not have a fix for the notation window. We are still working on a patch update, hang tight!

Your Band-in-a-Box should notify you when there's a patch available.

Not sure if this tells you anything but one of my students told me that he had not trouble with his Big Sur update but that he had been on the Big Sur Beta for a while before going to gold master.

Counting the minutes till this gets figured out.

Interesting, this might explain why we did not initially experience these issues. I'll mention it to the developers.

I just bought Mac 2020 version today 3/3/21 to run on my MacBook Pro 2020 which came with Big Sur. I do have the color problem, and blank notation page and blank lead sheet. Can't close lead sheet

Here's my Mac spec:

MacOS Big Sur 11.2.2
MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2020, Two Thunderbolt 3 ports)
1.4 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5
8 GB 2133 MHz LPDDR3
Intel Iris Plus Graphics 645 1536 MB

Thanks for looking into it.

Build 423 didn’t show in my update either. I went to the download link given when it was announced.

I haven't been getting update notifications in the program either. I check the website regularly, so I see them there and download & install.

That seems to be something on our end - I've reported it to the dev team.

I don't know if PG Music has changed their procedures but it use to be considered normal for the program update notification to lag behind one update.

The explanation I remember is this allows PG Music to remove the current build release if a severe issue is found soon after the build is released. This kind of situation is rare but it has happened.

The 423 build fixed the notation window issue for me.
I have a 2020 MacBook Pro w Big Sur 11.2.3
I got BiaB 2020 for Mac yesterday. ( Xgrade from Windows)
The notation window was blank,
Today I found this thread and downloaded build 423 from the link and the notation window works.

Yes, they still do that. Now that I re-read Roger's message I understand what he's saying, and that's exactly the case there.
