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.

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: Problem with Entrance Effect? by iamgap in Version 8.5

If I understand what you're describing, this has been an issue since version 8.0. If you turn off (or don't use) animate first step {or something like that}, this issue goes away. Unfortunately, you have to animate first step if you want any slide to appear blank before showing the first item. There is a work-around for this, but it doesn't look as good if the animations don't match the transition.

RE: Abbreviation of Bible version? by George in Version 8.5

Hi Joel.

That will work when projecting the scriptures but what Dick was looking for was a setting for the display in the program panel.  Unfortunately there is no setting for this.

Bug in wait time?? by akins in Version 8.5

Slide Show, Automatically Advance;
Object/Entrance Animation/ text (or whatever),
Settings/Wait time until animation starts: 1s (or whatever, except 0s)
Duration of animation: 10s (or whatever)

Animation only works if there is no wait time for automatically advanced slides.

RE: file searching by osborn4 in Version 8.5

Agreed. I would love to have an alpha sort order available. I don't care if a video is an AVI, WMV or MP4. I want to find the video.

Windows 10 Mobile Control App by George in Mobile Apps

There is a SongShow Mobile Control app available that was originally developed with Windows Phone and the like in mind but we know what happened there.

This app is still available and works great as a troubleshooting tool or even for control of another machine.  This works on Windows 10 only.  It was tested on Windows 10 Home and Pro on a desktop and should work on any Windows 10 laptop or Surface device, though not sure about ARM devices. 

This can be found by searching for SongShow Mobile Control in the Microsoft Store in Windows 10 and installing from there.
