The way i see it is this.
When a new song is loaded my screen usually has chords in GREEN for intros so i can immediately play guitar with them.
I am iterracting with the audience then when i hit start with my foot pedal my chords turn RED giving me instant visual confirmation that the song has started and confidence that i can start playing along with the guitar, this is very useful when you have an instant start of songs and a more professional look instead of an untidy and confused look as you dont have the visual confidence that the foot pedal press has actually worked, as sometimes you misshit the pedal or your bluetrooth device has just run out of batteries and is not triggering the song etc.
Version 2 did not have this issue it allways was GREEN and turned RED on start TIME code (00.00.00) i have just checked a file that has chords on first line time coded (00.00.00) and has been chosen the chords do not highlight immediately , only when you hit start then they highlight indicating you have activaded the song and are moving throuh that line this is much better logic , more helpful when performing.
As i said before i have found a work around but it would be lot more time saving if the software behaved like V2.
