8.4 still going to SSP folders rather than correct one!

Well, for some time now , and still in vs. 8.4, if you select from media files
slide shows, images, videos, audio tracks, or web pages it defaults to
Song Show Folders rather than the correct folder. This requires selecting
a folder that should already be known and selected. Hopefully this basic
kind of stuff will get fixed soon.

I just looked at this and it is working as expected...

A bit of info: These paths are stored in version and user specific ini files for SSP.  The storage of this info occurs when SSP closes.

If you are changing users and see different behavior this is probably expected.
If you are changing versions and see different behavior this is probably expected.
If you are improperly closing SSP and see different behavior this is probably expected.
If an error occurs when closing SSP and you see different behavior this is probably expected.

These are just some examples but the idea is that with same version and user, once set they should stay the same.  If you are experiencing something different than this, contact support so they can take a look.

Is there some way for me to set, for example, the default folder for images to the "images" folder
rather than the "Song Show Folders"?

Hey Dick.

Let me elaborate a little more....

There is no setting, per se, but SSP remembers it.

So to your question, the way to "set" it would be by selecting the Images tab, selecting a folder (other than the SongShow Folder option) and then close SSP. 
When you re-open SSP and select the Images tab, it should open to the folder you selected previously.

Also understand that this will change over time since it remembers the last folder you were in when SSP was closed.

If this is not the way it is behaving for you, please contact the support team.

"it remembers the last folder you were in when SSP was closed."

Does that mean, if I was in "images" and closed SSP and restarted,
then selected "videos", it would point to the "images"folder? I must be
missing something because this wouldn't get all the defaults set properly.
I want it to point to the "images" directory when I want to add an
image and the "video" directory when I want to add a video, etc. And
I don't care if it never points to the Song Show Plus directory since there's
no files there I care to use.

Sorry Dick, I guess my statement was incomplete.  What I should have said was "it remembers the last folder you were in when SSP was closed for each tab."

If you go to "Folder A" in the %InsertTabName% tab and then close SSP, when you open SSP again and select the %InsertTabName% tab, it should go to "Folder A" again.  If this is not happening, call support.

If I want to insert an image, video, audio, or web page the default
directory is always "SongShow Folders." I will contact GFM.

RE: Fire OS version? by yehoshua in Mobile Apps

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/.

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!

RE: 8.4 Shutting Down by George in Version 8.4

Just to clarify - is the application (SSP 8.4) shutting down or is the system shutting down?  

Did you have prior installs of 8.4 that did not behave this way or was this your first 8.4 install?

In any case, you should contact the support team so that they can take a look at this.

RE: Stage Monitor Settings by George in Version 8.4

You can set independent Slide Properties for the Stage monitor, which does include margin settings.  My guess is the if you have less real estate on the Stage monitor then you probably want to make sure the Shrink to Fit option is selected for the Stage monitor - this will make sure the text fits as expected.

If you need additional guidance on this contact the support team for a walk through.

RE: uicjk List by George in Version 8.4

OK - Glad this will work for you.

A few things to keep in mind for the Quick List:
  1. There is only one Quick List per display - you don't save them like programs. 
  2. The Quick List loads every time you launch SongShow Plus.
  3. Related to #2 -- If you add something to the Quick List but then change the source material outside of SongShow Plus, it can cause issues with SongShow Plus starting correctly.

Control SSP with Abelton Live through MIDI by agathon in Version 8.4

Hello group,

I was wondering if anyone was possibly able to control SSP through MIDI commands from something like Abelton Live?  Currently at my church, the worship leader uses Abelton Live with MIDI to send out light cues to our DMX system.  I'm also wondering if it is possible to do so with lyrics in SSP where Abelton Live sends out cues to an SSP machine with MIDI to change the slides automatically.

Thanks.
