Hello,

I'm fairly new to this.

I'm looking for info on text boxes.     Right now,  I find it confusing.

I want to edit one of my slides.

There is one comment,  and then there are 4 steps.

I'm thinking I want 4 text boxes for each step so that when I hit the PLUS button, each numbered step will show as I keep hitting the plus button.

I've been looking but cannot seem to find a good article that explains text boxes.

Please advise,


Laurie

That will work or ...

you could put all of the 4 lines of text in one text box and animate the lines
using the animate icon (5th from the right above the edit frame) or use
. that is, "control plus period". You can then rt. click the text box and
go to "properties" and select "bullets" if you wish, or leave the bullet type
blank for no bullets. If you find one bullet smaller than the rest, select all
(ctrl a) and select the font size again. Once the 4 lines are in one box, you
can rt. click and select the entrance animation you desire. If any one item is
longer than one line, you will get two (or more) lines each of which will
animate. If you want the multiple lines to animate as one, turn off the
animation of the 2nd, 3rd, ... lines and add tabs on the left so all the
lines are left-justified, if desired. The size of the tabs is set by "properties"
and then "spacing".

I hope this gets you started -- don't hesitate to ask again.

Since I don't use animations often, I usually do this by creating a slide with all 5 items as I want them. Then I clone it 4 times (so I have 5 identical slides). Then I delete the last 4 items from slide 1, the last three from slide 2, the last 2 from slide 3 and the last item from slide 4. Then I present this as 5 slides with whatever transition I like. Just make sure that, as you preview the slides, the text size doesn't change because it might have been shrunk on the 5 item slide and not on the 1 item slide. Adjust font size if this happens.

Quick FYI for you....

If you contact the support team they can get you hooked up with the training videos. 
They have a library of over 100 training videos as well as a large library of specific tips and trick for using SongShow Plus.

They can even answer questions for you and show you how it works.

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.
