We've been using OpenLP for a few weeks and it works reasonably well in our environment. We especially appreciate the implementation of how scripture verses are displayed - it knocks the socks off all the paid versions we've compared/trialled.
The one sticking point is that a number of our speakers are heavily entrenched in the ways of PowerPoint ... in particular, the use of transitions/automatic timings. As a result, when projecting such presentations, we have to exit OpenLP in order for PowerPoint to grab focus, and execute as desired.
Is there a way to disable the OpenLP projector feed, so that instead of exiting OpenLP, one could simply disable the feed, minimise OpenLP, run PowerPoint which then has the projector focus, quit the PowerPoint when complete, return to OpenLP and re-enable the feed?!?
We've seen this implemented in the Worship Him Power Edition software when we trialled it.
Thank-you for your time.
