Our church, (Charleston Harbor Bible Church) is used to using "The Celebration Hymnal" and some of the songs are different in Song Select On-Line.......I called Integrity Media and they said that for an ad-on for Song Show 7 to display exactely what is in our hymnal it would be like a total of $320 or something like that. Does anyone know how to get this to work?
Thanks!

I'm guessing you would be buying the Integrity Worship software, which would contain thier song database, and use the SSP Integrity module (formerly promodule) to connect SSP to it.

The songs in Song Select don't always match our hymnal either. But I just clone the song, edit the lyrics and verse order to match our hymnal.

I then put a (HFG) in the title to note that it has been edited to match Hymns for the Family of God. Anything in the title in parens will not show up on the screen.

Thanks for the tip about the Parens! I didn't know that. Of course there are a lot of things that I don't know about this software.

Another way is when you edit a song, make a collection called HFG and put all the HFG songs in that collection.  i would then put the number of the song in brackets eg: song title (234), so you can do searching on song numbers as well as the titles.

Hope that helps.

Our church also uses the Celebration Hymnal. Most of the differences between what is printed in the hymnal and in CCLI's Song Select are small. E.g., in the hymnal only the chorus of the song is printed, and in CCLI's Song Select all of the verses and the chorus are available. As long as the Author(s), copyright holder(s), year all match you can use the number in CCLI.

Sometimes you cannot find the song in CCLI's Song Select--if so, look for it under each individual author as sometimes it is listed by the last person, generally the one who created a choral ending or setting. You can also usually find it if you do an advanced search. If you search by catalog, in this case Ingegrity, you want the "Hosanna!" Music You will get 2000+ hits, then do an advanced search with Catalog > contains > integrity; Title >contains > song title; Author >contains > name. You get better results with "contains" rather than "is exactly" as field limiters. Sometimes when you search by the author, especially the person who wrote the choral setting, you only get the part he wrote. When in doubt CCLI will always be delighted to help you and will direct you to the correct song number with the correct information.

For example, in the hymnal # 225 is “Come, Christians Join to Sing.” If you search by title you will find the song, plus 10 others. You then need to read the catalog list and find “Word Music LLC . . .” That is the song, but only Lee Harrington is listed as the author on CCLI’s Song Select. The hymnal lists Christian H. Bateman and David Evans. In this case I would add those two names to the SSP General page for this song.

In the hymnal # 80 is “I Stand in Awe” by Mark Altrogge. In the hymnal only the first verse and chorus are shown. In CCLI’s Song Select there is a second verse. You have the option of including it or not. A similar situation exists with # 530 “I Will Call Upon the Lord” by Michael O’Shields.

A search for hymnal # 324 “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross” will give you 25 hits. The basic song is public domain, however the version in the hymnal is copyrighted by Integrity. None of the listings in CCLI’s Song Select match what is printed in the hymnal. This is a time to call CCLI.

RE: Stage monitor font by BertFowler in Version 7

We have just added a stage display and I understand that the font cannot be changed for that display. Now, the stage display is actually smaller in size than my display screen, which defeats the purpose of having a separate display for the stage to make it easier to see. I have one work around which is: In Display Properties>Song Layout>Show I have set "have lyrics fill screen when title information is not displayed" and in Tools>Preferences>Stage Display, I checked "Word wrap" and UNCHECKED "Consistent size". I also set the default song text size (in display properties) larger than normal. With these settings, the stage display grows to the default text size whenever possible. It does some awkward word wraps, but the size is larger and easier to read.
I wish the stage display had a few more settings, especially Font and font size. Some fonts are larger, bolder, and easier to read than others.
Tech guys, please take note.

RE: Even More Displays by dreece in Feature Reviews

If you have three screens for which you always want the outputs to be synchronized, then you can use a TripleHead2Go to treat them as a single display. You can put multiple video objects on a single slide in SongShow Plus.

RE: synchonizing songs on two PC's by mike in Version 7

I completely misunderstood your original post -- I thought you wanted to use the same physical DB, on a shared network drive, from multiple PCs.

I've never tried adding a song at home; I almost always do that before the worship team rehearses it at church. The SongSelect website is helpful and I love the SSP import feature!

I do prepare all of the sermons notes and announcements at home. I have also given up trying to sync my systems, but they are close.
Working at home, I embed everything into the slideshow; but when I pack it up on a thumb-drive; I copy the slideshows to sub directories with names similar to where they will go; I do the same with the graphics even though they will not be needed by the slide shows since they are embedded -- but they are copied onto the church system for future use anyway.

RE: Song slides not updating by mike in Version 7

I think I know what was happening here

The 'Verse Order' is kept in two different places. If you are using a song in the 'Program' (typically the right side of the screen) the 'Verse Order' that is being used is local to the Program. If you 'Edit the Song' while the song is in the Program, the Program will not get the Verse Order updates made in the DB copy of the Song. If this is the problem, there are two solutions.
1. After editing the song, remove it from the Program and add it again. This way the Program gets the Verse Order from the Song. (I believe there is also a button in the Program's 'Verse Order' screen labeled 'Use Typical Verse Order' which copies the Verse Order  from the Song.

2. While a song is in a Program, only change the Verse Order in the Program. There is a check-box that you can select that will also apply the Verse Order from the Program to the DB copy of the Song.

RE: Importing ASCII Text Files formated songs into SSP by George in Tips & Tricks

Additional clarification:

Yes, the Clipboard option is still available but...

The new song Text Importer (and other new document based song importers) all work in a similar fashion to the clipboard in that you are presented with the text and you get to select which parts to add where in the song file.  The advantage is you are saved steps needed to get the text to the system clipboard because the docs are opened in the native application.

RE: Editing image location by mike in Version 7

I don't have the system here in front of me, but try to Edit the image object, then select the image file location (it may or may not be there).

I too was never a fan of a change that was made some time back in the way that images are handled. Even when images are imbedded, I want to know the name of the image and where it was loaded from (even if the file is no longer there) -- this would help  me search for it if I ever want to use it again; but the file name and path is not always available.

RE: I can't see any of the unread messages! by akins in Version 7

For those who might happen to have the same problem sometime, George had
me go into my account and re-establish the data and all worked fine after that.
Seems like there can be a slight glitch after renewing the license sometimes.

RE: Backgrounds not showing for media files by osborn4 in Version 7

FIGURED IT OUT!

I changed the default background for videos to black. And, even though this is an audio file, the top display property was "Video". On that tab, Background was set to overlay black.

I changed that to "Use default background" and it showed the specified backgrounds that I had set below.
