Using Text Styles on Non-text Objects
An enhancement in SongShow Plus 8.0 lets you specify a the use of a text style for a non-text object. This is particularly useful if you want to have a non-text object, such as an image or shape, be positioned in the exact same place as a text object.
I'll use the new Video Effects Collection demonstration slide show as an example.
In the slide below, you'll notice that the title text has a border below it.
The border is not part of the text object, but is a separate shape object. The shape object, however, is set to use the same style as the text object, it's position is set to use the default for the style. This means that if I make changes to where the title is located, the shape object will automatically relocate as well.
The following is the position setting for the Slide Title Layout in the Slide Theme Properties:
Note the following change to the position of the title:
And now notice that both the title and the border are re-positioned.
Below is the Object Properties window for the shape object which shows that it is using Title as it's default style.
The capability to specify an alternate Default Style for shape objects is a new feature of version 8.0.
