For some reason I am not able to change fonts at all. Prefs/Display/Colors - nothing is working, whatever selection I make (chords main, chords additional etc) npthing is changing. My aim is to display chords in chord display as Comic Sans.

Any ideas guys?

thank you

You have to reboot band in a box for changes to take effect

Maybe your computer just shows good taste in design and refuses to use Comic Sans on principle? Well, fun.

Ha! I know font designers and graphic artists all love to hate on Comic Sans, but I find no problem with it.

This should have been necessary - just hitting okay to see the change take effect should have been enough in the display dialogue. Once that dialogue closed out and you were back on the main Band-in-a-Box screen, you should have seen the change. But it only happened when you reboot Band-in-a-Box entirely for you?

I could try to answer, but could you provide more information first?
Were these color schemes that used to be there and are no longer available?
Or were these items in the wish list that may / may not have been implemented?

There are some 'skins' available from the Display options > Choose Skins button. It will only show skins that you have available on your installation.

More information would be helpful.

I’ve had great reviews and compliments about the music, but no one ever mentioned the typography before! Producing a record certainly involves many tasks.

Color schemes have been part of BIAB for years. They contain various settings font styles background colors etc My favorite was one called Allanah Chocolate or something like this. There was a drop down list with about 20 or so schemes.

Is this the feature you were thinking of? This post is a bit out-dated as it's from 2017, but this sounds like what you might have been thinking of: https://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=404737

How/where did you access this drop down list from?
In about 2018 they introduced Display Options, allowing you to set whatever colors, fonts, size etc that you want. Maybe this replaced 'color schemes'?

I think it's gone Audio track. It used to be in Prefs/colors as I remember. I have done something similar to my former colors manually now.
I mourn the loss of these schemes smile
