A year ago I posted this wish. I suppose no one has voted for it
and so it is dying a natural death. I can't figure out why anyone
would oppose it. it surely is a trivial fix for techs and would save
me (at least) lots of pointing and clicking. I assume that it was an
oversight, since items like transitions are easily assigned to multiple
slides at one time.

Dick,
You can do this currently using the Themes process in the Slide Builder.

By using the Theme option, you can apply not only the Background but any setting globally within a slideshow.

You can also use multiple themes so if you have 10 slides and 5 need one background (or other settings) and the 5 need something else, the Themes will allow this.

You can also group select slides and change the Theme selection.

These tools should get you what you are after.

I'll give it a try ... but being able to simply select and paste
would be easier.

First try was a flop! I could set a theme (even multiple ones) which looks
correct in the theme editor. But I was never able to apply a theme to an existing
slide and have it change the background to that of the theme. Tried to follow
the Help guide implicitly, but must have messed up somewhere -- many times!

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.

After a 1/2 hour with GFM, we finally got it figured out.
Turns out that all items (like backgrounds) selected on
an individual slide have priority over the same item
selected via themes. This makes some sense, but wasn't
obvious to either GFM or me! Removing the standard
copy/paste options for backgrounds was a mistake in
my opinion. It is so much simpler for most tasks and is
something everyone understands, but is not likely to
be activated.

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.
