Hello everyone,

I have been having a very difficult time transitioning from Mediashout 4 to 7 (and usually I can figure out new software), and I'm really regretting making the purchase. Is there a way to have multiple Bible verses on one page? Not having dual Bibles, just want to put maybe Luke 10:31-34 on the screen. Right now, it's putting each verse on it's own page. I know I can probably manually do this, but I'm really hoping there's an option for this that I just can't find.

In v6 this was referred to as "wrapping text." That capability is not yet available in v7 since, in v7, you have the capability of selecting (for instance) Romans 12:10 and 12:12 -- without selecting Romans 12:11. With wrapping text it could be confusing to have continuation and could miss the context. We are working to balance the need for wrapping text and skipping verses, and should have a solution soon.

Mr. DuBose,

Thanks for the reply. I guess I'll have to do it manually as a text cue or something, that's a bummer. I think it's much more effective for the congregation to see several verses on the screen at once, instead of just one verse at a time. Sometimes, verses are so short that by the time it's displayed, the pastor has reads the sentence or whatever, and then I'm advancing - if someone is a visual learner and they're reading the verses on the screen, and they read slower than the pastor speaks, now they're not going to get to read and digest the Word because they're only getting half the scripture before the verse is off the screen. I'd much rather have this option over selecting the verses with the checkbox. If I ever needed to do that in Version 4, I just added a text box, inserted first Bible verse I wanted (still in the text cue), and then inserted the second verse. Is the "insert" function in a text cue still available in V7? I'm not at the church computer right now to open Mediashout and check.

You can actually still do it as a bible entry and copy/paste the verses together on one page. I also then added the verse numbers in the text as superscript so it was in context.
