Cool, is that posted someplace publicly?  I wouldn't mind checking it out

It sounds as if there are no icons configured for the drums in the drum
kit; open the drum kit file in doggiebox and check it out in the drum editor.

I realise it's kind of stupid that doggiebox doesn't provide a default
icon when one isn't specified; I'll fix this for the next build.

Interesting idea.  What about a "stationary file" type thing, which would
essentially open an existing template document?  Then you could fill it
with whatever you want.

Alternatively, it would be easy to have a "start with ___ bars" option in
the preferences, but that would beg also having settings for default time
signature and tempo marking, which might be overkill for preferences...
but maybe not.
