Do new versions of MS allow for verse selection of songs?

Not sure of best way to put it. We currently run MS4 and use the Paperless Hymnal. We really need to update our system and are studying our options. MS4 allows is to import songs from TPH as PPT and see the individual verses in sheet music form. Do the newer versions of MS allow that? We can't download a demo until we have a new computer and we are debating on whether to use a Mac we currently have or buy a new Windows tower. We also have a lot of speakers that build their lessons on PPT. Does MS7 allow us to function as we do on MS4? We have several different men that run the system that have just basic knowledge of how to get things running so we dont want to muddy the waters.

Thanks.

Hey there,

Are the TPH files actually PowerPoint files? Or, if not, can they be converted to PowerPoint files? If so, MediaShout 7 for Windows would allow you to bring those PowerPoint files into the program. The Mac version of MediaShout would not, however.

Because of the amount of use of PowerPoint, I would suggest staying with a Windows computer. That will give you the ability to pull in PowerPoint files very easily.

When you have the chance, check out that trial version and that will give you a good idea of what it will do for you. www.mediashout.com/trial

Thanks,

Thanks Ryan. Yes they are PowerPoint files. We could convert them to PDF if need be. I have MS6 demo on the Mac and couldn't pull them in so I wanted to be sure we had that ability on Windows before going forward.

I see. Yeah, the Mac side doesn't support PowerPoint files (because the Mac OS does not allow one program to launch another. It is one of their security features). It does, however, work on the Windows side in MediaShout 7.

Check that out when you have some time and let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks,
