Sorry if this is documented clearly elsewhere, but, as a newbie, I am just trying to clarify what happens with powerpoint (and other media files) with respect to the service file.
As I understand it ...
When I add a powerpoint presentation to my service, the powerpoint file itself is embedded in the service file. This means if I copy the service file to another computer everything will still work. Similarly, if I reuse the service file some weeks later when the original powerpoint presentation has been removed from my computer, it will again still work. All good!
However, if I want to edit a presentation which has already been added to my service, then I need remove it and add it again for it to pick up the changes. Is that right?
I also assume that, if I have copied a service file which contains a powerpoint presentation to another computer, there is no way to retrieve that powerpoint file from the service (eg. if I want to edit it). And if I delete it from the service then it is deleted for good.
Finally, I'm guessing that this is also true of media files and images. Is that correct?
Meanwhile, can I just say that, having spent the last week playing around and converting things from SongPro, I have been very impressed and excited by what OpenLP seems to offer. We are planning to use it live for the first time next Sunday to see how it goes.
