  • @lpgrimm You might find that OpenLP can import songs from EasyWorship very smoothly and without any manual intervention. We migrated from something called SundayPlus (never heard of it anywhere except in our church) several years ago and the import …
  • Same scenario here. A warning of some sort about unused verses would be useful. However, we have a few songs where the situation is reversed and we want to keep some verses for special occasions and generally only display a subset. A generic solutio…
  • I've noticed something similar in 2.1.6 yesterday. On slides that have multiple lines of text that fade in one by one on click, the remote view only ever shows the title that was visible when the slide first appeared. I can see the remote view refre…
  • Many thanks from me too. I just tested 2.1.5 with Powerpoint 2007 and our pre-service notices with automatic slide transitions run as they should AND the thumbnail and remote output update. This is great because we're starting to use a tablet to di…
  • We came from Sunday Plus and the hard part was converting all the songs. I kept looking for a way to do it fully automatically but in the end I went over all our orders of service for the past few years, made a list of all the songs we use, imported…
  • The feature veninga describes would be useful for us too. We don't want to modify the library those times when we use a special combination of verses, or start with the chorus, etc. But I always seem to find edits to make to the words, to fix typos …
  • I think our mouse cursor pops up briefly when we move it if we're showing Powerpoint and possibly when showing videos, otherwise it remains hidden for all OpenLP content such as songs and readings. Haven't noticed it to be a problem.
  • I've seen this happen too but not consistently, and it tends to be when I'm sitting in the congregation and someone else is at the computer. I've usually assumed that they started up PowerPoint outside of OpenLP because something wasn't working prop…
  • Marcusq, the error that you're seeing may well have been fixed in tgc's test release. Have you tried the release that he linked to above?
  • I've just done something similar to what Paul describes but I didn't know about the Kiosk Browser. Sounds like it will solve the problem of the tablet going to sleep during the service. If it also figures out the optimal zoom, centres the words corr…
  • Nice. Thanks for doing this. The screen capture in the live preview pane and on the remote view updates correctly even when controlling the slideshow from Powerpoint. That's a great feature to have. Some small issues though. Comments apply to Power…
  • I've been using 2.1.4 at church because there have been so many fixes and other improvements, and it needs testing :) No need to create a portable build just for me.
  • Most presentations display fine without the animations but in some cases (perhaps when the animations are very short) OpenLP captures the screen mid-animation or mid-transition so the live preview and the remote view look a bit odd. Similarly Powerp…
  • Thanks a lot. Tested with Office 2013 at home and it works nicely. Good to have hidden the main Powerpoint window as this can be confusing (especially when I have other presentations open for editing). The other error I was getting no longer appears…
  • Is there an API reference for interacting with Powerpoint (or OLE or COM or whatever it uses)? It's a shame that there's no way for OpenLP to subscribe to Powerpoint events and get a message when the slide changes. The second error does indeed appe…
  • From what I can tell, webkit is completely disabled in my OpenLP 2.1.4 on Windows 7 so it doesn't work for normal video playback either. It sounds like this is the known problem that will be fixed in 2.4. If I understand how webkit works, there's n…
  • And related to Powerpoint integration... I frequently get a message saying: An error occurred in the Powerpoint integration and the presentation will be stopped. Restart the presentation if you wish to present it. This usually happens when I double…
  • OK, understood. I didn't read your and Phill's comments on the bug carefully enough.
  • I still have this problem with transitions displaying text in the wrong place with the latest OpenLP 2.1.4 and Office 2007 at church. At home with Office 2013 everything works just fine so I'll need to investigate an upgrade of Office. The bug repor…
  • Here's a workaround that should allow you to shut down OpenLP without restarting your machine. Switch to a terminal using Ctrl-Alt-F1 for instance, log in, type ps ax to view all running processes and find the process id (pid) of the OpenLP process,…
  • The bug that tgc linked to above indicates that this has been fixed in 2.1.4 but the webkit player is now greyed out on a machine where it used to be available (even though it didn't work). Does anyone know how that bug relates to webkit being unav…
  • Hi Andrew, I remember reading a similar thread a while ago. It's a reasonable option to request but in our church there's no guarantee that the last slide will be shown, simply because the worship leader might spontaneously decide to only do the ch…
  • The OpenLP installer handles the upgrade for you and you shouldn't need to do anything. I haven't upgraded to 2.1.3 and I don't use OS X but all previous upgrades on my Windows machines have preserved my complete OpenLP setup (all my songs, bibles,…
  • Understood. Thanks for the update.
  • OK, I understand what you mean. I occasionally try to fix a typo during a song and if I'm not fast enough I can't advance to the next verse in time so what you suggest would be helpful.
