It appears that SSP does not show any words in a song title that are enclosed in parentheses.
Example:
A song title is "Joyful (The One Who Saves)" but when song is displayed, only "Joyful" shows on the display. This is a problem because the entire song title is "Joyful (The One Who Saves)"...

Is there a way to change this behavior? I feel like I've been through every menu, but cannot seem to find any option that controls this.

I believe this is by design, so multiple songs with the same title can be distinguished (e.g. by author, first line, or with 1, 2, 3, etc.) without it showing on screen. Could you use square brackets instead? Perhaps a wishlist item to allow double parens to display as single?

Actually there are a number of characters, not just (, which will stop further display on the screen.
Square brackets will work OK.

To confirm William's response - Yes, this behavior is by design.  There are no settings available to change the behavior.

This is actually very handy - it allows you to add short notes to the title without them
being seen onscreen. I wish they had used the square brackets for that purpose and
allowed parentheses for things like hymn page numbers, alternate song titles, etc. that
were to be seen by the audience; but that's an insignificant gripe

I agree. Very handy. We use () it quite a bit in song titles to denote different versions of the same song or alternate song titles, so they show up in the search,

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.
