Row Highlights

I'm working on a lot of stuff, and I figured I should probably learn how to use row highlights besides the standard setting. Is there a ratio that I'm missing? I figured if someone could give me some info on how to work out a specific one on my own, that'd be very helpful.




(I shouldn't need to know really, but come on. 9/46 is nonsense, and we all know it)

Your row highlight settings should be based off your song's time signature. The 1st Highlight should be the length of each beat. This is usually 4, but you can set it to other things depending on the song (as an example, a song with a swing beat might have a 1st Highlight of 3, or a song with a high Speed might use 8 to better reflect where the actual beats lie). The 2nd Highlight is usually set to (1st Highlight x # of Beats per Measure).

I made an FTM with row highlights 3 and 12, but I can't find the row highlight in the text file I get from File > Export Text...

I also noticed that, once I tried a song with a new time signature. I would change it, and an asterisk that meant I had unsaved work wouldn't pop up in the .ftm name on the program header. I went to another song and back, and it had reverted.

To be fair, it is mostly a convenience, but it doesn't look great.
