I'm sorry guys, but this is getting to be the most frustrating program. I simply want to select a motion background, but the search starts at C: and begins searching and never stops. I tried quickly changing to another location, but I can't beat it from going to C:. Task Manager is the only way to stop it. Add this to all the other things that don't get fixed and it may be the last straw!
Win 10, SSP 8.3.

When I hit "select" it goes to the menu page with all the drives (C;, D:, etc.) on the left panel and C:windows is highlighted. The top panel has a black triangle followed by C: and the directories below. The large center panel says "searching." The only way to stop it is with the Task Manager. If this is anything like the other searches, nothing will work until the black triangle C: can be clicked. Pretty hard to do much projection development like this!

I upgraded to 8.4 today and was able to do a complete setup without any issues. Have you tried 8.4?

Not yet -- I thought they might fix 8.3 ;-)
I hate debugging each new version!

I think their primary goal is to add fixes into the next version. Although, one as critical is this DAX/Memory issue should probably get fixed in 8.3.

Yes, debugging new version is annoying, but this is the reason they put it out in stages. A company their size probably doesn't have the luxury to test on all kinds of systems, so they let us do that with pre-releases and betas. Through this, they also let us make suggestions for new options.

To be honest, I would love to have some of the features from version seven restored, but I appear to be in the minority. Like all software developers, they have to stay with the trends and provide features that new users want. Sometimes these new features conflict with features us "old-timers" have gotten used to. Probably the two most desired features I would like restored are two that are probably high on your list, Cue-Current-Next and Clear Display Toggle.

Well, Gary,  who is to say that you are in the minority? There seems to be so little traffic on  this web site now that voting on wishes is more-or-less bogus. A more accurate method would be to implement wishes unless there was a lot of negative votes or it was technically prohibitive. Many wishes that are logical and universally used never see the light of day. Things that would make the program easier to learn and to use don't seem to have much weight. I'll give 8.4 a try,  but I'm not very optimistic at this point.

I now have a very important slide show to create and I cannot add an image because the search begins at C:/ and never ends.
Not very handy. I'm going to check with GFM to see if they can do anything.

Yes - please contact GFM to see if they can help.  This should be your first step....

It sounds like this is different that the DAX error (you did not mention that here) so we would love to see this in action so that we can resolve if they can replicate.

Thanks.

GFM gave me a solution. When searching for media outside the normal SSP databases (i.e. C:\) it's best to use
"Use Window Explorer" button (bottom-left) rather than the menu of drives (top-left). Probably a bug, but
once known it's an easy work around.

Well, I thought this was an easy way around the problem, but I was wrong! Today I'm trying to make the announcements slide for the service
and when I try to add a video it goes to C:\ and searching, searching, searching. Unfortunately, every button on the search screen is deactivated and
the Task Manager is the only way out. So with this wonderful program I'm left not being able to display the video desired. Hopefully, I will have time to download
vs. 8.4 and see if this, very, very obvious bug has been fixed.

RE: IOS Help by akins in Mobile Apps

Kim,
The wish list was a great idea and was very active and responsive for several years.
The forums on this site were also quite active with many questions and replies each
day. Both a dwindled over time for some reason - perhaps the product has matured
to the point where there aren't many questions and/or wishes. In any event, it is what
it is, but I, for one, miss the interaction with fellow subscribers and the techs. George
usually gets back with answers in a reasonable time. I no longer submit anything to the
wish list as it seems to be a "black hole."

RE: Ipad and SSP? by JoanneWillian in The Wave Pool

Thanks to the portability of the iPad, I can easily use it as my portable computer. As you said, I linked it to the projector, which brought me a lot of convenience. Also, I think it's a good time to buy old iPad models, they work very well and are cheaper.

RE: Fire OS version? by Dino123 in Mobile Apps

Posted By yehoshua on 21 Oct 2018 11:33 AM
One option may be installing "Apps2Fire" on your mobile device. This can be used to install device programs on a Fire TV Streaming Stick across the network. It might work for the tablets; I haven't checked. This is probably the easiest solution, if it works.

There are also a couple websites out there which will access the Google Play Store and download the APK files from Play directly. I don't have the one I tried bookmarked, but it shouldn't be too hard to find, but be careful, to. I *think* the one I used is https://apps.evozi.com/apk-downloader/.

I agree with you.

RE: Now What? by akins in The Wave Pool

And we have watched your title change and become more impressive over the years -
does that mirror an increase in pay ??
We have seen lots of changes in  SSP over the years:
mostly for the better, a few not so hot.
This forum has been the first of my browser bookmarks,
but now is largely, and disappointingly, inactive.
One thing is certain - things change!
