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: Preview version 9?? by akins in Version 8.5

Thanks, William. I could view the wish list in the subscriber forums, but the Version 9 forum didn't
appear until I updated my info.

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.

RE: Lyrics not visible unless "full screen" margin is selected by George in Version 8.5

Hmm - that does seem odd.  
My recommendation would be to contact the support team and have them take a look.  They can remote with you and see what is going on.  It is possible that this is just a case of overlapping Slide Properties.

RE: Medleys by akins in Version 8.4

I have build a few songs using slideshow. It works fine and your can use different
backgrounds with whatever effects you would like. You can play the slideshow
any way you like; e.g., playing a chorus twice, going back to a verse, etc. I use
this for songs (like "How Great Thou Art") that we sing periodically and which have
verses which lend themselves to widely different backgrounds. You could even have
the same verse (named 1a, b, ..) with different backgrounds.

Multiple Displays and HDMI Switch by mlmurray in The Wave Pool

Hi All!
I need a little help after a much needed upgrade of my projection setup at church.  Previously I had a projector with a long throw lens in the sound booth with some VGA splitters and switches to get signal where I needed it and to control what was being projected, simple as could be.  Now, I've moved to a remote mounted projector and an HDBaseT sender to get my video and all to the projector from the booth, and I've moved over to HDMI in the booth.
My problem is that when switching between which computer is being sent to the HDBaseT sender I am constantly losing and adding monitors to the computers (from the computer's point of view anyway), by that I mean, if my SSP machine has a dedicated primary monitor and my secondary monitor is going to the projector, when I use my HDMI switch to change to send the PowerPoint computer to the projector then my SSP computer thinks I have unplugged it's secondary monitor.  That's not the end of the world to Windows, it will almost always find the monitor again when I switch back and set it all up with the same resolution and position as it was before, however SongShow doesn't handle the transition as smoothly.  When switching the HDMI away from the SSP computer it will collect it's display windows to the one remaining monitor and the only way to get it to pick up the second monitor again when we switch back to it is to close out of SSP and then re-open it and go into the display settings and re-setup the screens.
I thought if I used an HDMI splitter between the computer and the HDMI switch and put a dedicated monitor on one output of the splitter and the switch on the other then that dedicated monitor would hold that second monitor position and prevent it from flickering off and on when I used the switch, but it doesn't.  Windows still thinks, for a split second, that I remove a monitor when I switch away.  It finds the remaining split-off monitor immediately, but not before it flickers and SSP brings all of its screens to the primary monitor.
I didn't have this problem when everything was VGA, I guess there just wasn't the back and forth handshaking constantly going on between the computer and the display.  Has anyone else had to deal with this and come up with any solutions?
Thanks for any input!
Matt
