Any tips on organising styles ?
A couple of comments...
(1) As far as I know, and I'm no expert here, the number of styles
which can be included in the Style Picker Window varies with your
version of Band-in-a-Box. I think the limit increased again for
BB10, but can't remember where the limit currently stands.
(2) When adding your own new styles to the list there is an
alternative to editing the BBW.LST file. That is to create new *.LS3
files in the same format. That's what Bob "Notes" Norton does for
his styles. I've tried it myself and it works just fine. By keeping
your own styles in a separate list, you don't risk overwriting them,
if you happen to install a new PG Music stlyes disk. (Installing new
Styles Disks usually overwrites your existing BBW.LST file, although
you are advised to make a backup of this file before you install.)
(3) I have Denis Ladouceur's Style Librarian. It only costs $10 and
I find it quite a handy tool. Although it is easy enough to
hand-code your BBW.LST or *.LS3 files, the Style Librarian makes it a
much simpler process when you want to copy styles into different
Style categories etc. I would certainly recommend it.

all of PG Music's styles, they won't show up. This is true whether or not
you use .ls3 or if you edit the bbw.lst file.
PG is working on this.
