Feature Review: Presenting Slide Steps
One new feature in the October 2010 Edition of SongShow Plus lets you go directly to a slide step within a slide show and present that step. Previously, from within the program panel, the lowest granularity of presentation was the slide level. If a slide, however, contained additional steps such as bullet items, you would have to then click the Next button to step through the bullet list. Now, you can go directly to a one of the bullet items without the need to use the Next Step button.
Here is a screen shot of what program panel now looks like when you expand a slide show. This is the example Announcements slide show:
With this new feature, you can now leave a slide, go present something from the database panel, such as an unplanned scripture reference, then return the slide where you left off.
This same capability is also available for songs. Previously, when using Line-by-Line or Page-by-Page to present songs, you had to first present the verse slide, then use the Next Step button to step through the song parts. With this new feature, you can now present each song part directly from the program panel.
The following screen shot shows how Amazing Grace now looks in the program panel when you select the Line-by-Line presentation mode.
This makes presenting on lower-thirds much easier.
Presenting slide steps isn't necessarily a hot new feature, but it will be a welcome enhancement for you as a current user!
