As the subject says after an HD died I have just taken the decision to migrate us from OpenSong to OpenLP.
Our projection team are capable and have a lot of comon sense but are not necessarily very IT literate. So the change is going to be a bit of an up hill struggle for some.
To this end I have a few questions from my use so far (I have taken on the first couple of weeks projection to bed things in):
1: OpenSong used to have an option to automatically have a blank (themed) slide between each service item is it possible to do similar in OLP?
I am aware of the blank or change to theme options.
2: Is there any way to tell which part of the window has the focus?
Our team tend to use the up and down arrows to progress through the service. This is fine till you click on the preview area or the song list etc. At which point your key presses just scroll through the last clicked area and not the live service.
3*: I am seeing a lot of orphaned words. Is there a way to avoid this?
I am not sure exactly what OS used to do but it seemed to scale the font to fit which did lead to some crazy big text for very short songs but did seem to avoid this issue of orphaned words.
Other than that thanks for a great bit of software. It has already shown its power after I managed to mangle putting the services together and suddenly discovered that I had got two halves of different services together. I wouldn't have had the song we needed up on screen by the start of the first chorus before and certainly wouldn't have been able to reprogram the rest of the service unseen. So thanks
* Alright may be slightly more than a couple.
cheers and God bless,
