I keep hearing rumors that the Song Select 3.0 database will no longer be licensed. But I can't get any dialog from our office as to if we've  received any notification to that effect.

Any other Song Select 3.0 database users out there that can shed some light on this? Our license is up the end of this month and we will need to decide what to do.

Thanks.

(Note: This is referring to the Song Select 3.0 database that CCLI used to sell on CD. This is not about the Song Select Online Lyric service.)

Joel, when we renewed our license last year (Nov 06), we were told that Nov 07 would the last time they would renew it. We have already decided not to renew this time and have been working on our song database accordingly.

We ran into this and last year converted the songs from SS3 to SSP format.  You can get a printout in SS3 of a list of songs that have been added/edited.  From that list, search for them in SSP and clone the song to the SSP database.  You can do this for any built in SS3 songs you need as well.  Then you can uninstall SS3 and SSP will have all the needed songs.  Its a manual process but it gets the job done (keeping your SS3 songs).

Well, our time has run out.

I'm thinking of changing the date on the computer, to see if SS3 will fire up again and get stuff out that way.

RE: videos have lost there sound! by akins in Version 7

Thanks for the response, George. SSP audio was on "B" and I changed it to "A" without any effect. It's interesting to me that the audio control box at the bottom left (used when reviewing videos) is set on "pause" even though the video is playing. Changing the audio to "play" makes no difference. When selecting WMV's that don't play audio now, it takes 10-20 seconds for the video to begin playing either in the preview panel or when loading into the program panel. WMV's in which the audio plays correctly load instantaneously.

RE: Italicized text & Align Right causes last letter to be cut off by iamgap in Version 8.0


I have experienced something similar to this with bulleted items for quite some time, no matter what FONT is used. I only use 0.1 tab size to avoid most of this, but I will still get it on occasion. I hope this fix will also fix our issue.

RE: Alongside Version 7 by George in Version 8.0

Jon,

The only reason to keep Version 7 would be to support legacy apps such as Online Bible.  If you do not use these then you will be fine uninstalling Version 7.  Also keep in mind that the un-installation of any version on SongShow Plus does not remove any data files.

As far as which one - the one listed as just SongShow Plus is Version 7.

Given your installation date for 8.0 (7/25) I would recommend updating to the current release - 8.1.

Also if you have question about anything the support team can help you with this.  Give them a call.

Second Display screen failure by mattp4989 in Windows 8

Afternoon everyone, 

  At my church we are running songshow plus 7 september 2009 edition. We are using a second screen for the slideshow. Monitor 1 is the slide display and monitor 2 is our desktop. For some reason our slides are now displaying on monitor 2 and loading on monitor 1. I have checked all the settings for the computer to make sure they are set correctly. I went to the display tab > change monitor options but it won't load.  Any thoughts or ideas of what it could be ? any help would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Mirrored Content to the Stage Display by kladner in Feature Reviews

Can you post the instructions for this? I can't seem to find it in any of the settings.
Thanks

RE: Tranparency by akins in Version 8.0

If I put a square image (for example) as the background of a 3:4 slide, if will be stretched; if I put the same image as an insert (overlay), it will not be stretched. Also, I use an old version of PhotoShop (Elements 2.0) for creating PNG's and it retains the original size -- i.e., doesn't crop.

RE: Setting Slides to 16:9 ratio for Program Display by iamgap in Version 8.0


Thanks George!!!

I am not sure why I couldn't find that last week, but this will definitely help in the future.

In relation to this topic, I guess I was confused by the word slides, and thought the topic was SSB. As far as embedded display, that would be the only logical place to change the 'practice' display that shows up in the SSP control screen.

RE: Global Slide Properties by wkdreskin in Version 8.0

Yep. "Themes" are really important to know about. In fact, I'd recommend you produce one of those "tips" videos on it. The adjustments are familiar from previous versions of SSP but until I spoke with customer support, it simply never occurred to me to even click on it and see what it does.

As always, thanks for your help, George!

Mobile theme for SSPlashing by osborn4 in The Wave Pool

I've mentioned this elsewhere, but I'll bring it up again here. I'd hang out here a lot more often if there were a mobile theme for this site. Just saying.

Slide Builder appears to be hiding off screen (TS267) by George in Troubleshooting

Symptom:
When launching the Slide Builder, it does not appear to open.  Upon further examination it appears to be minimized but cannot be maximized.

Possible Cause:
The exact cause is unknown but it seems to be related to a previously connected display that the Slide Builder was opened on.

Possible Solution:
The user can do the following to try and move the Slide Builder to the current screen:

  1. Launch Slide Builder from the Programs menu.
  2. Once launch is complete, hover over the taskbar icon for Slide Builder and click on pop up  thumbnail to ensure focus on Slide Builder.
  3. Press ALT – SPACE – M to invoke the Move option then press the arrow keys to move the Slide Builder window to the current display. 
  4. If this does not work initially you may have to try it a couple of times to get the window to move.  An alternate method is to move the mouse after pressing an arrow key and the cursor turns into crossed arrows.

RE: Importing a looped powerpoint directly into ssp7 by osborn4 in Version 7

Edit the SongShowPlus Slide show in slide show builder (right click, slideshow, eidt).



In Slide Show Builder, go to File-> Edit timing properties.



Set the Advance the slide show to Automatically. This will expand the timing options and you can set those as appropriate for your show. Make sure and set the Loop slide show to Yes.



Hope that gets you on the right path.

Online Services - Unable to set up accounts (TS266) by George in Troubleshooting

Symptom:
When trying to set up the authorization for the SongShow Plus Online Services the user receives and error indicating “A device attached to the system is not functioning”.

SongShow Plus Online Services include the following:

Dropbox
Google Drive
OneDrive
Planning Center Online
Shift Worship
SongSelect


Possible Cause:
SongShow Plus uses Internet Explorer for all embedded web page actions.  If Internet Explorer is not the default browser, this might cause issues with some functions.

Possible Solution:
Check the Default Browser setting and make sure it is set to Internet Explorer.  If not change it to IE, at least temporarily.
