Re: Chords all flip to 'hold?'

Thank you. I don't think this could be the case. There were approximately 20 chords entered in a 32 bar chorus, only 4 of which had holds. Prior to the 'flip' and after I updated every chord and removed the holds the chord sheet showed the chords without holds in black. It was only after playing that everything flipped.

Just a thought: If you enter a chord symbol on the measure you want held, then omit to enter a chord symbol on the next measure or beat, that could happen. What I mean is: if the chord you want held is the first of a sequence of the same chord being played, it's easy to leave these subsequent measures empty.

Weird, indeed!

I haven't run into that problem -- have you rebooted your computer and restarted BIAB to see if that persists with the saved file or whether it was simply a glitch in that particular instance running BIAB.

Please keep us posted.
