Chords Repeat in Playback

I've searched and searched for some sort of solution to my problem, but haven't been able to find anything. I'll try my best to explain the issue.

I've been using the Chord tool, which is extremely convenient. However, when I playback the song, chords play where they aren't written. In every measure where there isn't a chord specified for beat 1, it will play the chord from the previous measure, even though there is nothing written there.

It doesn't effect me being able to read the music, but it makes playing back the song very difficult because what is being played is not accurate to what is written.

I've only been using this software for a few days, so I'm really hoping this is a simple fix buried in some setting menu. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know.

    Yes, this is an issue due to the "Backing Styles" in ScoreCloud.

    We are working on this to include a backing style that doesn't play on every bar. In the meanwhile, you can add an unplayable character (like a dot or an 'x') as the chord on the first beat. When the program doesn't understand the chord, it gets silent.

    Sorry for the inconvenience.
