May 04, 2017  -  Band-in-a-Box® Version 2017 for Mac Build 173 Available!

Band-in-a-Box® 2017 for Mac customers can install the latest patch update (Build 173) here:

Summary of changes for Version 2017 Build 173:
Changed: Update patches are downloaded into "/Band-in-a-Box/Data/Updates" instead of "/Band-in-a-Box/Data".
Updated: 2017 PDF full and upgrade manuals.
Fixed: "Memo:" should not be showing in the Titles dialog.
Fixed: A mixer patch description would be blank for RealDrums on non-drums tracks.
Fixed: Band-in-a-Box might crash if user clicks on any of the main menus while booting up.
Fixed: Blues chords were showing up when importing xml.
Fixed: Choosing to save a song would ask to "save as", as if the song file did not already exist.
Fixed: Drag and drop from Master to MIDI quadrant would fail with errors.
Fixed: For some cases of opening or saving a file (eg choosing VST plugins), the file dialog would not open in the right directory.
Fixed: If running Band-in-a-Box in a language other than English, automatic updates should not report available English update patches.
Fixed: If you select a song in the Titles dialog then sort by something, it jumps to the top and loses your selected song.
Fixed: If you type in random words in the filter in the Titles dialog it shows up with lots of entries.
Fixed: In the notation window regular advance in editable mode should advance to the 1st or 3rd peg of a beat that has 4 pegs on it.
Fixed: Program could freeze when saving to xml.
Fixed: Program would crash if attempting to save xml to root of hard drive.
Fixed: Small omissions/typos in Artist Bio's.
Fixed: Step advance issues in the notation window.
Fixed: The [Defaults] button in the Titles dialog reveals a whole bunch more hidden empty columns.
Fixed: The [Save list] button in the Titles dialog doesn't function.
Fixed: The [Show all] button in the Titles dialog doesn't work. It deletes the text but doesn't show you all the songs available.
Fixed: The extended RealDrums patch descriptions were not displaying on the mixer.
Fixed: The 'F3' hot key symbol did not display in some popup menus.
Fixed: The menu item "Insert Current MIDI chord" should display command+return as the hot key instead of control+return. Both work, but control+return is impossible to do with one hand on a standard Apple keyboard.
Fixed: When opening an XML file, the current song would be erased if the user clicked Cancel in the file open dialog.
Fixed: When you select a style with your cursor or keyboard and hit return, the StylePicker closes but your selected style wasn't chosen.
Fixed: Whole song was not saved to xml.
