Win 7, SSP 8.2 (10/21/15)
When editing text in SSB and using tabs (0.7) the spacing in the edit box is very small (like about 0.1),
but shows up large (correctly) in the Builder window & when projected. Surely this isn't a planned feature!

I looked at this in both 8.2 and 8.3 and it does seem to be working as expected.
a note - I used the default text font and other setting on my test. The spacing can vary some based on font type and size but it should not be as drastic as you described.

Please send me some additional details on the text that you are entering and the size and font.

I was using Virtue since neither Verdana or Tacoma seem to have bold and italics in this version.

Hi again Dick.

I looked at this some more and it does not appear that "Virtue" is a stock font - where did you get that?

Also I think you meant "Tahoma" rather than "Tacoma" - I did try that font and the spacing looks the same as the Arial that I used initially.

By the way - I was able to get bold and italics to apply to Verdana and Tahoma.

Perhaps a connection with support is in order.  If you get with them they can take a look and capture the slideshow slide that you are using.

There are many other variable that could have an effect (font, font size, amount of text, position options, etc) as well as where you are setting the  so guessing is not a very efficient way to do this.

I've seen similar problems using bulleted or numbered lists. It looks way off in the edit box, but generally OK on the display window. This is consistent across all fonts that I've tried, but I'm currently using Gnuolane
http://www.dafont.com/gnuolane.font

I also (again, with all fonts) have too much space between "paragraphs" or lines that end in an in the editing window. But it looks fine in the display. Text that flows from line to line appears normal.

Wish you had a way to upload screen shots here, because I'd love to show you.

Yes, screen shots would help.
I will investigate tabs, bold, and italic problems further.
Is there some way to replace the Ariial font as the default?

Yes - Certainly....

If you set your theme and/or global properties for each element ahead of time you can set the default font to anything you want...

Keep in mind that there are different settings for many different text boxes.  For example when dealing with Scripture text there are both the content and reference tabs that can each have a different font set.  This applies to Songs and Slide text as well.

Yes, the operative word here is "many" 

It might be nice to have a global default font setting -- a lot people, myself included, probably
have a favorite font which they use unless there is a call for something special. That global
font is now Arial since that's what you get unless changed somewhere.

I haven't gotten around to checking the font situation, but did look at the tabs.
In version 7,
when you select the tab size (quickly and easily via a right click in the edit window), it shows
up immediately both in the edit window and the slide preview screen. You can use the tab
to easily position text.
In version 8.2,
when you select the tab size (not so quickly or easily via "properties, click, click, etc."),
it does not show up in the edit window (it remains 1.0 there), but shows up correctly
in the preview panel. Almost impossible to use anything but 1.0 tab to position text,
since you can't see where the text will be.

There may be some logic behind this, but for now I call it a "bug."

Hey Guys,

If you guys have screenshots or examples for any issues I would recommend talking to the support team to get an official escalation started.  

While some issues or questions are pretty straight forward and can be answered here, most cases benefit from talking to the support team.

Also Dick,

I realize that you are only recently moving into the Version 8.x world but would recommend that you work with 8.3 rather than 8.2.  This does a few things but most important is that you will be on the same page as us for replication and fixes.  There may be fixes or changes in 8.3 that you do not have.  Further, any issue that you bring to us that is fixed will only be added to the latest version so even when corrected you will not see it unless you update....

As far as the many settings - If you update you globals you should only have to do that once and that is your new default.  After that if you want to make temp changes you can do that by adding a new theme with your specific changes.

Done!
GoFish couldn't solve the problem and has sent it on -- it's in your court now

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.
