  • Paul, did you get this running?
  • Yes - and it massively helped here. Don’t know how/why it had become “rechecked”. Because I know I set it to force VLC
  • Had some extra time with the system this week... Thought I’d try a different player - but Somehow it had decided to use the “system” player in preference to VLC. Worth checking JohnM?
  • What processors are you running - and what on earth is OpenLP doing to eat all the CPU?
  • There are two options I came across (and actually didn't use either because a good poke on the projector made it work well enough.) The words can be moved around using the theme definitions.The screen can be limited by the menu I pointed at earlier.…
  • Possibly it's the very top of the general options menu: https://manual.openlp.org/configure.html
  • I would always recommend having your screens set up before you start OpenLP (or any other presentation/projection software)
  • Previous service file is opened by default when OpenLP starts.Played from the service. Don't think it's saving them 'lite', the save files contain the video etc...
  • " (I find out the song list at the beginning of services and that is out of my control)" It doesn't have to be... Someone knows well before then, and they could tell you if you asked them. You may need to point out that having them on Thu…
  • Trying to remember what I did a few days ago (I've slept since then) but IIRC you can double click on a given slide in the preview?
  • If you load the 'other' song into the preview window can you not select a specific slide to bring that live, then preview the 'first' song so that you can jump back into anywhere in that?
  • That would be ok if the settings were visible - but avoiding people having to dig into the settings menu is the target here... I had a quick look at the setting screen display code, which looks like it should be repeatable...  I'll have a look at t…
  • Fair enough wrt the actual screen resolution, hence my suggestion of a link... but there is an area in the config section to choose the display output/area. As I said I haven't investigated the various things which might affect the default output -…
  • I can see what I'm typing now... At the weekend OpenLP needed to be told to use the secondary monitor.  Is there a panel that we could use to be able to choose display area, and potentially force screen resolution, on the UI? During the week the co…
  • Yes - the fuzzy matching was pretty good actually.There weren't too many false matches, but there were quite a few when I would have liked to be able to copy and paste to add a verse into one side or to split a verse into two...If the 'deduplicate a…
  • I had a set of 7 'duplicates' From memory they were something like ABCBDDA (each letter representing a real song) To figure that the two end ones were actually identical was harder than it needed to be (even when I'd dropped middle duplicates out - …
  • More comments having finally got through the 400 odd 'duplicates'  - Once there is only one song left it could take it and advance to the next duplicate (maybe optional)  - Rearrange songs when you have 7 'duplicates' but they are actually 4 differe…
  • An empty custom slide is an option - but it requires that you progress to the 'next item' It would be nice to have the option to add a blank slide at the end of songs - let the instruments play out without people expecting to repeat the last verse/c…
  • Nothing worse than a hanging question...   :)
  • Just going through the 378 duplicates at the moment... Comments  - Would be really nice to have differences highlighted  - Would be nice to have the display sections line up (so V1 is at the same height on both/all panes)  - Would be really nice to …
  • Thanks Raoul For those following... (including me in 6 months time...) SongPro5 has a text file export option, so I downloaded a Win7 OVA from Microsoft, and installed SP5 on that - let it upgrade a copy of the SP4 database (the only export option…
  • Would it be worth having this as an import option - import only those which don't have a duplicate... The import would be MUCH slower, but that might be a price worth paying...
  • Ok, it's mature enough and the issues probably rare enough that I should be fine...
  • I shall look again at the export - it's a pretty old version of SongPro... I grabbed 2.2. on the basis of the warning on the download page which links to: https://openlp.org/blog/2016/02/14/openlp-24-released I've just noticed that that was Februar…
  • Surely that would be stage view, not live view?
