On MacOS the Options are accessed via the main menu JJazzLab/Preferences.
Select all the chord symbols (right-click menu Select all the chord symbols)
Use the mouse-wheel, or right-click menu Transpose
It's easy if you use VirtualMidiSynth with the JJazzLab SoundFont:
in JJazzLab, save the backing tracks as a .mid file using menu File/Export to Midi file
open VirtualMIDISynth (right-click from the icon in the Windows system tray) and select the MIDI converter. Select the .mid file and generate the audio file.
You can also use a screen recorder software: some of them directly capture the output of the computer sound card and save it to a .mp3 file.
Use the FluidSynth -F option to generate a .wav file.
Use the VST host (Cubase, Reaper, etc.) capabilities to record the output of the VST instruments.
You need to reset all JJazzLab user settings (uninstall/re-install is not enough).
The simple way: menu Tools/Options/Advanced, button Reset all user settings.
The hard way: find the location of your Netbeans user dir in menu Help/About/System Information, exit JJazzLab, then delete the Netbeans user dir.
Yes. When first prompted by the JJazzLab installer, select "Install only for me", then select an installation directory where you have write access (in My Documents for example).
JJazzLab can drive your keyboard to benefit from its optimized sounds. Connect your keyboard via Midi and go to the Output synth editor and apply the Yamaha Tyros preset. This preset is based on Tyros5 which is backwards compatible with previous Tyros models and most of the PSR keyboards.
In the JJazzLab installation directory, edit the file etc/jjazzlab.conf and add --fontsize 16 (16 or any other value, default is 11) in the default_options variable, you should end up with something like this:
default_options="--branding jjazzlab -J-Djjazzlab.version=2.2.0 -J-Dplugin.manager.check.new.plugins=true -J-Dplugin.manager.check.interval=EVERY_DAY -J-DNOT_RUN_FROM_IDE=true --fontsize 16"
Restart JJazzLab. All menus should look bigger now.
This won't solve everything though, as some editor fonts do not depend on this setting. But you can tweak some of them using menu Tools/Options/Theme. Check each item in the list and if there is a font defined, change it to make it bigger. The user settings are automatically saved, so you need to do this only once.
We need the following information in order to help you:
