It's interesting,  but frustrating, that a 16 pt. Virtue font in a slide show is equivalent
(on screen) to about a 20 pt. Virtue font in a scripture slide. I find this on both my
workstation and projection PC's. Did someone actually plan it this way??
PS: I made sure there was no size reduction due to text block size.

"PS: I made sure there was no size reduction due to text block size."

By this, do you mean the 'Shrink to fit' and 'Grow to fit' are unchecked in your font settings? Or do you mean that it looks normal in a song, but bigger in Scripture?

Virtue isn't a font on my computer. Is this a font you have acquired from a third party? Is it possible that it isn't a TT Font that SSP may have trouble handling correctly?

Yeh, I made sure the grow to and shrink to were not being used. I began using the Virtue font
when I started using vs. 8.1 and found the SSP would only slightly bold either of those. I submitted
the problem to GFM and they said to submit here. I did, but don't think it got any action. In any
event, I needed a strong bold font and Virtue fit the bill. It is a ttf, but I don't remember where
I got it. I will try some other font and see if I see the same anomaly.

This behavior is expected and is addressed in this KB article:

The "preferred solution" in the blog is NOT a solution, since it does nothing to make equal point
sizes in scripture and slide shows show up equal when projected. I would call this a "bug" even if
it is "expected!" The only work around is for the user to realize this unusual (the most polite word
I could think of) behavior and make the scripture font significantly larger. Of course, to make matters
worst, everything is shown correctly in the editing screens.

RE: 8.4 Wont Display on Screen by George in Version 8.4

Dave,

It is possible...  I suggest that you call in to the support team - they can connect and sort out any settings issues that you might have pretty quick.

Thanks for choosing SongShow Plus!

RE: Video playback settings by osborn4 in Version 8.4

OK. Seems like an extra menu we have to navigate for little payback. We can select what we want from the sub menu, or if the playback dialog would launch w/o the submenu, we could use that extra mouse click in the dialog box. Same number of clicks. Extra work for you.

SSB errors by akins in Version 8.4

The Black-White gradient backgrounds seem to be way off center for:
Swirls; Center out, gradient; center out, ripple; center out, ripple skewed; and right-shading.
They are not at all like what is shown.
Question: Do these only apply if black and white are chosen for the left and right colors?

Thanks - for the present the old fashion hand-wave may be the easiest, safest, and all-around best method.
Now if I had something to jog my attention when I need to signal.

RE: 8.4 Plus 10/31 Update by George in Version 8.4

The 10/31 build of 8.4 is the latest build and would the the one used to update.
The cleanest way to update would be to simply download and install the 10/31 build from the Download Page and install it.

RE: DMX in SSP by osborn4 in Version 8.4

If your DMX controller can accept MIDI input, theoretically, you could fire a MIDI cue from SSP as an audio file. Of course, your SSP machine will need to have a midi card.

Theoretically.

Presentation Remote for PowerPoint by jonereb in Version 8.4

I need recommendations for a presentation remote for preachers who use PowerPoint. It needs to have a 100 ft. range and work with a room full of cell phones and wifi interference. My current remote works fine when the room is half full, but with a large crowd, it is completely untrustworthy.

Hey Dick.  Sorry to hear you are having trouble.

If you contact the support team they can walk through that with you and then if there is a bug or something incorrect in the user guide they can identify that and report it.

Thanks again.
