Is there a way to set a default for the chord generator? I'd prefer to have "bar" length, rather than 1/4 as my default. Otherwise, I have to edit each individual bar, which becomes tedious depending on the length of the section I am working on. (I am talking about the default phrase length)

If you ask about the phrase length, that can be set, but the default note length cannot be set up in advance in the Chord Generator :

If needed, I can add such a setting, just let me know.

One thing that occurred to me, you can already do this today.
Not many users are aware of this but you can save phrase generator presets, that you can use later.
That is you can customize a phrase generator and store it in the phrase browser.
So make a modified Chord Generator, or any other phrase generator:

Step 1: Prepare the phrase
Add a new phrase generator, and make adjustments to its properties. Apply the changes.

Step 2: Save the preset
Right click on the phrase, and among the actions locate "Save Selected Phrases"

Step 3: Your custom phrase generator is available in the browser:

bingo, that works for me. I totally forgot about the generator presets. There is a bar preset already.. I have been away from using the software and may have forgotten some of the basic how to's. So, unless it is worth the effort to add the change, I wouldn't bother with it. Thanks!

Sometimes I forget about it too! I'll copy the post above to the Tips&Tricks sub-forum.
This is a convenient way to make several versions of the same phrase generator with default values.
E.g. make a monophonic version of Generic Generator, or another one with full polyphony with your choice of rhythm generator.

Thanks,
Attila
