When viewing the abbreviated version of a song sequence, sections that repeat are condensed, now listing once with a multiplier, instead of repeated. An Intro that repeats two times used to be displayed as "Intro, Intro" and now shows as "Intro×2".
Song arrangements are increasingly using many duplicate sections, which take up a lot of room when displayed in the plan or at the top of your chord charts. By displaying the multiplier, sequences should usually take up less room, and be more easily parsable.
In this real example, the end of this sequence is much more compact.
NEW: "Inst×7, Ref×4"
OLD: "Inst, Inst, Inst, Inst, Inst, Inst, Inst, Ref, Ref, Ref, Ref"
