When Display Properties are inserted into a program, and you come back to edit them using right-click, you can't
select "Display Properties" from the list, but have to select "Slide Properties." Of course it is NOT a slide. Is there
some logic here that I am missing?

Hey Dick....

Please elaborate - Where are you adding the "Display Properties" to the Version 8 program from?

The only thing I can think of is this is a carry over from a Version 7 program - The properties terminology "Display Property" was changed to "Slide Property" in Version 8.  This change was made to avoid confusion with the actual displays (monitors) and more accurately reflect that the fact that these settings are for "slides" since just about everything in SongShow Plus is presented as a slide of one form or another.
That said, even in this case the build should recognize and convert the previous "Display Properties" to "Slide Properties".  There may be a remnant that shows "Display Property" but that is for compatibility back to V7.

It is also possible that the object name was changed, but that is less likely since that would require user intervention to do that.

If there is somewhere in Version 8.3 that you are able to add a "display property" (that is not actually in the Display Settings) please give me the exact steps to find and add this and I will investigate.

I've seen this too, when you right click in a program and select "Insert Display properties" or something like that, so that everything underneath that item will inherit those properties (unless over-ridden in the object itself).

You were right, George -- this was a carry over from vs. 7. I had copied a template that I had used with vs. 7 and didn't
realize that the display properties came from that template. It's interesting that vs 8.2 understands that it is "display
properties" and puts that in the rt-click menu, but it can't be used. Anyhow, I will change to 'slide properties."
Thanks.

I recently stopped using the 'Insert Display Properties' because of a conflict with Scripture Background. It appears that you did not have a Scripture Background if you wanted to choose it, and the Pastor recently changed his mind about putting a scripture (or anything for that matter) up during his sermon.

I like having the 'Insert Display Properties' option in case I have to add a song as the last second, and it can at least have the default background instead of text on a black background. But if I use one, the scripture will use that default background instead of the image chosen for the scripture background.

I am not using the current version, as I just haven't gotten around to updating it. Does the latest version give options for setting a scripture background, as well as a song background?

I'm using 8.2 and haven't seen any problem with the backgrounds. I inert two different song display properties
(two songs each), then scripture display properties, finally another song property. Other than the edit "display properties"
(which doesn't do anything) at the end of the pull-down list, it has worked OK. It is, however, another of many examples
of redundant menus -- you click to edit song properties and you get a menu to select what you want to edit (songs, scripture,
etc.) and then takes you to another screen where you can select all types of options for songs and other items. Oh well,
everything is just a click, click, click, .... away

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.
