Our second projection license has been moved to a laptop.  This laptop does not have a second monitor hooked up to it and I was planning on using as it is and have it project to one of the screens at the front of church.  There is not enough room to add another monitor and it is going to be used mainly for when videos or slideshows are shown on the main screen and something else on the side screens or if there is a play and the actors need words up on the back tv so only they can see it.

I have set up the laptop so that the monitor recognizes the second display.
I have set up songshow through the display to recognize the second display as the projection screen and when I identify it shows a 1 on laptop and 2 on the screen.

Now how to get the projection screen to show what I want it to show when I hit play for song or slideshow?
I have the hdmi cable plugged into the laptop and have no problem using it to show powerpoint or videos.  My issue is trying to get songshow.  

When I asked years ago the answer I was given which worked was 
"That said, I think the key bit that every one is missing is that when you only have a single monitor the default behavior is to embed the display so you can see it .  This is typically done for workstations.  You have to override this behavior by going into the Display Settings (From the tool bar - Display > Change Settings...) and on the Other tab set the embed option to Never to get what you want to work."

When I look for the change settings I can't seem to find it and instead of spending hours frustrating myself I am going to ask the experts!!

Thanks  and hopefully this all makes sense!!

This would be a great question for the support team.

I encourage you to contact them at your convenience while you are at the laptop and they should be able to get it sorted out for you.

Make sure you have the projector on and powered up before you start up SSP. that has made all the difference in the times I've been in this situation.

What happens when you hit display and it doesn't show up on the projector? Does it show up in a windows in the SSP control panel?

RE: export slide show as video? by George in Version 8.5

Dick.  
This is not a tool that is available in SSB however there are several 3rd party screen capture tools that you can use (some free) that will also capture audio.  I think you would just need to make sure your intended screen res was set before starting but it should be fairly straight forward.

RE: Bug in wait time?? by akins in Version 8.5

Thanks, Joel

It certainly seems like that is the case. It saddens me to see, what once was
by far the best church display software, now not keeping up with user
desires/needs. Nothing in the tech world is forever!

Stay safe.

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.

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.

AAH! Multi-line display works even though it takes up a lot of vertical space.

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.
