  • Correction released in v1.2.7
  • Good to hear that you can't reproduce the problem :)   To answer your questions: 1. Yes, that is the way the software works.  On startup it attempts to create an instance of PPT and if that is successful then the PPT tab is enabled. 2. I'm sure …
  • Thanks for testing the correction for me, much appreciated. With regard to the preview issue, there is no preview possible for PPT in v1 for various reasons including managing possibly multiple PPT instances. Regarding the error message. Was the p…
  • From your posting, it seems to me that you are using v2. Is this correct? Do you have v1.2.x installed that you can test with? If so, please send me an email (derekscotney[at]openlp.org) and I can send you the relevent file.  Tx.
  • I have managed to find out what was causing the main problem (and fixed it), but I cannot unfortunately verify that PPT 2010 now works correctly as I do not have the necessary runtime environment.  If anyone is able to test with the combination of W…
  • Unfortunately, my only dev environment is XP with Office 2003.  I have an idea where to fix the PPT issue, but the image problem is plain weird. I'll see what I can do though.
  • I have confirmed that the problem is due to a bug in the software.  I have made the correction and will release it in 1.2.5 soon.
  • I think this "could be" related to the audio component I am using.  I have recently updated it to the latest release, so if you are willing to be a guinea-pig I can send you a new executable to try.  Drop me an email to derekscotney[at]ope…
  • I have checked the source, and the PPT tab is greyed out when an error occurs during the startup of PPT from openlp.  Unfortunately, this will most likely be quite a technical issue to resolve since the software component we use only caters for PPT …
  • Unfortunately this is not a simple issue and so all I can suggest is that you try the V2 alpha version which is available and see if that works for you.  Full internationalisation is one of the shortcomings of v1.x and is one of the key focuses of V…
  • Am I correct in assuming that this text is not coming out correctly in the lyrics text entry box?  It should work fine if you are importing from SongSelect.  Unfortunately, i18n was as bit of an add-on in 1.2, whereas it's being built in from the st…
  • I suspect the problem is due to the fact that we have never tested this version of PPT with 1.2, but it could be a simple issue to resolve. I will look into this and provide feedback.
  • Have you tried the recommended import option of going through the website menu option "Lyrics -> Export -> txt or usr file download"?
  • Just for interest sake, can you tell me what version of DirectX you are using? You should be able to find the DirectX menu item under Control Panel. It should be higher than 8.1. If all else fails, I will contact you directly to try a test version …
  • I'll also check this out with the media component that is being used. I saw this once before but with another audio format.
  • Well, it turns out that my testing before was a tad faulty. For some reason, the versions of openlp.org I used were all old and wouldn't have worked anyway.  I re-did the testing with the latest versions and it check outs A-OK.  No problems with ope…

  • As has been mentioned by Gushie, IE is used for the SongSelect web-import of songs. I have tested this functionality on both my XP machines, one with an old version of IE and one with the latest version, and I "unfortunately" do not see th…

  • Hi This may be obvious, but the "Lyrics->Export..." is in the SongSelect webpage, not in openlp :) Regards, Derek.  
  • You are welcome. Glad it's working :)
  • An interesting issue.  The problem is that the method you are using to do the song import (copy to clipboard) is actually not released :) The reason that is works the first time is because when I developed the import feature, I initially planned to…
  • Hi Guys I'll be looking into this issue during the course of the week and keep you posted on the situation. Derek.
  • Jono is 100% correct.  CCLI changed the SongSelect to enable them to do (more) accurate download tracking since this is one of the criteria they use when paying royalties to the song authors. You should still be able to import the songs through the…
  • To be honest, the audio integration was primarily to enable backing tracks to be added to songs and pre/post service slides. The reason for the audio tab was to provide a way to manage the tracks.  Adding the individual tracks to the order of servic…
  • Thanks for the info.  It displays correctly on my machine, but I think the 'Á' is better.  I am releasing 1.2.1 tomorrow and this fix will be in it. Derek.
  • I'll take a look at this bug and include the correction in 1.2.1. It will probably be towards the end of next week and include 1 or 2 other things too. Derek.
