Please post your bug reports about openlp.org 1.0 RC6 here. Remember to read up on how to submit a bug report before posting your bug.
Here are the bugs that we know about in RC6:
I am unable to get an 'output' screen for the preview system at all. I have installed RC6 as a full installation on 2 computers, one running Win 98, and the other XP, and in both cases the preview output screen is blanked out to black. Am I missing something in setting it up?
As it happens, the computer I actually use for projection is still running RC5, so I do not really have a serious problem, but it would be nice to be able to use RC6.
Further to my comments above, I have got myself REALLY confused now.
On the guess that the problem may have something to do with themes, I tried switching back to the Default Theme.
I normally use a theme that is simply a white background with a black Times New Roman font with effects applied.
When I switched to the Default theme, the preview screen worked as expected.
Next I tried to edit my existing scheme to see what happened.
Now both the preview and live output screens show text, but as white letters on a black background (i.e. it is the inverse of what it should be).
Still doing a great job, you guys; but I am still waiting for a version that will make me a cup of coffee whilst I am preaching!
With OpenLP.org 1.0 RC 6 (Upgraded Version) on Windows XP i experience the following problem:
Thank you for your great piece of software!
one more thing:
In German we have many special characters like ä ö ü. Other languages do have them aswell (French, Nordic Languages, ...). It is atm possible to write them to the langugae file like that, but it would be (imho) better if we could use the html code like ä and so on. but this doesnt work right now.
You need to use the XML attributes, rather than the HTML attributes for those sort of letters. I will go and update the translation page now .
When opening a PowerPoint (either from Media Manager or Order of Service), window focus moves to the PowerPoint slideshow window and doesn't return back to openlp.org. Therefore any keystrokes are going straight to PowerPoint and preventing openlp.org operator view from knowing to update its own display. Also when I alt-tab back to openlp.org, the order of service display has focus, rather than the 'Live' display.
Desired action: When opening a PowerPoint, focus should return to openlp.org and the 'Live' list of slides.
If I edit any theme, the horizontal and vertical alignment will (just sometimes) be the default (center) and shadow and glow color will also sometimes be default (black).
If you read a recent blog post of mine, you'll notice that the XML format of the themes has changed slightly. This is what is causing those issues. It should just be a simple matter of editing your themes and setting them up correctly, and saving them again.
Disabled screen is re-enabled if changes are made to themes in Options->Settings
Don't think this one will occur very often, since there probably aren't many one line songs!
However if you have a song with only one line of lyrics, and there is no carriage return at the end of that line, when presenting the song you get a "List index out of bounds(0)" error.
Adding a carriage return at the end of the line fixes it.
Also after editing a song, the scrolling region is off by one... the song after the one edited appears at the top of the visible region. (The correct one remains selected now though which is good)
In Options->Settings, set Theme Option to 'Use song themes', and OK out.In the Order of Service panel click the button to open a .oos.After opening, attempt to change the OOS theme (click the [v] on the combo box)Get a "List index out of bounds (-1) " error.
(Also on occassion openlp.org has prompted me to save the .oos when I first attempt to open a .oos... i.e. when there is nothing in the current oos. However I haven't been able to repeat this, can anyone else?)
