I have always wished for an animation that would bring one letter in at a time, almost like typing. I thought this topic was in here, but my searching skills cannot find it. Anyway, I have built slides to do this and wonder if anyone else has done something like this. I also wander if there is enough interest in this to add it to the wishlist.

Doesn't the SSPSS download when you click on it?

Hum!! I used to have to get on this site twice a day just to keep up with
all the news, discussions, tricks, questions, etc. Now once a week is more than
sufficient. The last wish granted was 18 months ago. I hope all of this is not
an indication of the health of the company - but I suspect that it is. Sad;
this has been (is) one of the great programs over the years with zealous
user interest and dedicated tech support. Maybe we need a resurrection!

For internet explorer you should be able to right-click it and choose save target as. I am not sure what other browser options would be, but something that indicates downloading a file. It is small enough to download, but I am not sure put an email address in a public forum is a good idea. I wish this forum had an option to attach files.

Thanks, Gary, I got it. I admire your programming and this is a nice effect.
However, I think that it is only slightly different (from viewer view point )
from the "wipe" to the right at about 1.5 sec. Of course, the wipe would have to
be adjusted for line length to achieve the same "typing" speed for different lines,
whereas yours is automatic. At a very slow "typing" speed yours would certainly
be better than the wipe which would uncover each letter slowly.

What do you think the chances are for this to be added to entrance animations?

When first posted, I looked at this and wondered how it worked, but I didn't look more closely. Thanks, Dick, for keeping this thread alive, so I revisited it and actually figured it out.
Gary, I noticed that you had bullets tuned on, with an invisible bullet. Is there a reason for this? I turned the bullets off, and it moved the text slightly left, but the animation seemed to work the same.

I guess I use bullets out of habit. Bullets would be necessary if each line was displayed on the same slide, one line at a time.

I will have to try the wipe animation to see how that works. I saw an animation once that actually made it look like you were inside of a typewriter. That would be a cool animation.

I tried the wipe, and it is OK, but it doesn't quite have the pop of each letter appearing one at a time.

I have no idea if this will make it as an animation, but it sure would be nice and a whole lot less work than building one phrase at a time.

RE: Can't get new fonts to work in SSP by sara-t in Version 8.5

Thanks, Dick! I did read your thread and tried your fixes, but with no luck. I do appreciate the help, though.

RE: Importing PPT in slide show by George in Version 8.5

Hi Kim.

This is not an issue that we are familiar with but you can try the Preview build of 9 to see if that resolves the issues.  If not,  please contact support to report the detailed behavior in 8.5.

Thanks

RE: Shadow Disappears by gwhaverdink in Version 8.5

We have had this happen periodically on different computers.
I have found that switching to a different SSP Program and back again will cause the shadows to return.
Closing and re-opening SSP also works - but takes longer

RE: Buggy on a new speedy system by goodonline in Version 8.5

I spoke with Support at SongShow Plus. The issues I am having are known issues and they are working on them.
It sounds like they are putting more effort into getting version 9 out than fixing the issues with v 8.5 and windows 10. The support tech said that all of these issues have been fixed in v9

I have a new system coming in this next week with Windows 10 that will be the main media system for the church.
Any suggestions on how to work this out? For the near term I am thinking of loading windows 7 so SSP 8.5 will function properly. I drag my feet in doing this because of one software program that is not being actively updated.
I may need to look into other software.....
Any advice out there?

RE: Preview version 9?? by akins in Version 8.5

William, I have long since found that posting to the Wish List is
futile. I was one of the ones initially suggesting a Wish List and
I submitted many wishes/suggestions and was pleased with the
responses and implementation of quite a number. Unfortunately,
for the last few years the List seems to be pretty much a "Black
Hole." I'm sure that a Wish List requires almost a full-time person
to man and, when there is a shortage of staff, it is dispensable.
No good thing lasts forever!

RE: Assisting with CCLI Reports by osborn4 in You Tell Us!

CCLI no longer asks for projection activity. They just want "new" copies, which is when one is downloaded, printed or recorded, but not projected.

RE: installed fonts not showing on screen by osborn4 in Version 8.5

I still wish you'd allow OTF fonts. I can't always convert to TTF.

Windows allows them. Not sure why you don't.
