Windows 10 Mobile Control App by George in Mobile Apps

There is a SongShow Mobile Control app available that was originally developed with Windows Phone and the like in mind but we know what happened there.

This app is still available and works great as a troubleshooting tool or even for control of another machine.  This works on Windows 10 only.  It was tested on Windows 10 Home and Pro on a desktop and should work on any Windows 10 laptop or Surface device, though not sure about ARM devices. 

This can be found by searching for SongShow Mobile Control in the Microsoft Store in Windows 10 and installing from there.

RE: word wrap in program panel? by akins in Version 8.5

Bummer! There are many times when I would like to see the end of a verse
or, especially, all the animated text in a slide.

file searching by akins in Version 8.5

When searching for an image or video (e.g. looking for a background)
the listing is by file type and then name. This is very inconvenient and
the only program that I have where this is the default. Often I'm looking
for a named file and have to scroll completely through the list to make sure
that the file isn't of a type that I hadn't thought of. Is there any way to
change the default to the more common "name & file type." I've tried
everything I can think of w/o success. I'm sure there must be a way
since this is the most common file display format.

RE: Mobile Control not connecting to SSP program by Albion Bible Church in Version 8.5

Was able to correct problem by disabling IPV6 setting in Advance Windows Network Settings.  Thanks Brian, George and Brad for your assistance.

RE: PowerPoint by George in Version 8.5

Gary,

Regarding your question about the post 1809 WMV video issues - possibly.

That issue was only encountered when multiple high res (1920) videos were used so if this is created in the importer at less than 1920 then probably not.

RE: Timer with looping slideshow by akins in Version 8.5

I couldn't tell exactly what was causing it. The only conditions for which I
have tried using the timer with Improv was a continuously looping
set of announcements (~10) which had slides with a motion background and
some animated text. The count-down was to the next 1/2 hour.

Gary, it looks like you, me, and Joel are about the last of the "old-timers."
