Not sure how to ask this question but here goes. For example say I am playing in C, it's 4/4 timing and I want a quick F chord half way thru the bar. How do I enter that?

You literally just enter the F half way through the bar. Biab breaks the bar into sections. Click on the 3rd beat of the bar and type F

You can also put three or four chords in one bar. For example type F, put a comma, Em, hit enter, type Dm, put a comma, G7, hit enter . That’s one beat per chord:

|F Em Dm G7 |

Thanks to all. The comma is what I needed.
