connecting to a projector

edited 7:27PM in Development

Hi, i used openlp 1.9.3 for the first time during a service the other day, and noticed a couple things.  for reference i'm using laptop with windows 7 x64 with office 2010


1. I connected to a projector after starting openlp and when i went into options to choose to display on the second monitor i couldn't choose it, i had to restart for it to find the projector.

2. i tried import a large section of scripture, (all of Genesis) the program didn't respond for about 15 minutes, maybe a pop up progress bar would be good if the size is over a certain amount

3. for displaying a powerpoint presentation it didn't seem to like the arrow keys for the first while, i had to use the mouse and suddenly about 5 minutes later the arrow keys started to work.

4. there seemed to be a bit of an issue using powerpoint when a slide had animations i had to click over to the pp viewer and then click on the slide to get the text to appear instead of arrows.

other than those 4 things it worked very nicely, only thing to improve it would be speed but that might be due to me having an older laptop that's lacking in RAM

    Glad you are trying out OpenLP.

    1. Having to restart OpenLP would be the norm if you connect a projector while the program is in progress. Monitors/Projectors generally aren't thought as being so much plug 'n play.

    2. What format where you importing the scripture from? This could possibly be a bug but need a few more details.

    3 & 4 I am not so sure on powerpoint issues I will have to ask around on that one.
