Please post your bug reports about openlp.org 1.0 RC5 here. Remember to read up on how to submit a bug report before posting your bug.
No change was made to the multiple verse selection , so if it worked for RC4, it should be working for RC5. Only the slide formatting was corrected. Can you display each verse individually?
As regards the themeing, what theme format setting are you using? Verse level, OOS level or Global. Maybe this is why things are looking strange.On the last issue, I'll add it to the future feature list.
Hi. Got the missing comma issue sorted, but I can't reproduce the screensaver bug. I displayed a verse live, blanked the screen, let the screensaver kick in and then cleared the screensaver. No problem. Can you tell me what version of Windows you are using? I'm on XP. If I'm getting something wrong in the simulation let me know. Thanks.
Regarding your problem, you may find a temporary workaround is to press the 'Alt' and 'Tab' keys at the same time. However I've noticed that when the management window is highlighted, the 'Output' window jumps to the foreground so this may not work.
I think the "proper" solution should be to add a new feature request to be able to completely disable the output screen, in addition to the 'blank' option that currently exists. This would also solve another irritation I have when I'm setting up the order of service, to be able to open say Email in the second monitor and be able to see the two at the same time, rather than the output window jumping to the foreground as soon as I click on the management window.
I found another "cursor position lost" style bug. When you edit the lyrics of a song and then press [OK], the song list is updated, but the cursor is hidden. If you press an arrow key, the user discovers that the cursor has been returned to the first item in the list.
This is annoying because often you want to drag the song you have just been editing into the Order of Service box.
Added to the list.
I've got an issue with the lyrics/title/author search text box. openlp.org starts filtering the songs as you type into this box, which in theory is good... However I have 2200 songs in my database, and so after typing the first character, there is a 3 second delay as it does the search before I can type the second char, a further 2 second delay before I can type the third char etc. This makes it very difficult to use.
So is there is any possibility of either a non-blocking search (i.e. as soon as the second char is typed it aborts the currently running search and starts again) or an option to switch this feature off and instead replace with a "search" button that can be pressed once the whole search string is entered?
I'll have a look at that. It should be relatively easy to implement a non-blocking search using the existing code.
When editing an existing song, and clicking "OK" to save it please could I request:
1. An hourglass to show it's doing something
2. For the focus to go back to the song I just edited. (At the moment it scrolls back to the beginning of the list) When I'm mass editing songs which I've imported from Songs of Fellowship it's a tad annoying to have to keep scrolling back!
Had a bit of a fight with PowerPoint trying to set up a service. Office 2007 on Vista.
First of all I added a ".pptx" file, but it looks as though you only remove the last 4 characters (rather than finding the location of the .) since the name had a trailing dot. Once adding it in the media manager, I was unable to open it, or even delete it!
Went back to powerpoint and saved it as ".ppt" which was more successful. Added it to the order of service, tested it 'live', saved the order of service. Closed down openlp.org.
Re-opened openlp, and it showed and hid the splash screen, but wouldn't go any further. (I have it set to open the last oos automatically). So renamed the oos file, openlp started fine. Opened the oos file manually (worked fine) but then tried to go live on the ppt, and just got lots of messages popping up telling me it couldn't find an image. (the ppt only had 4 slides in it, but got many more messages)
(Oh and the last niggle whilst I'm here is that it doesn't refresh the operators view if the ppt has an automatic advance on it... possibly something to look at when you rework PPT handling after the 1.0 release?)
