Bring Back Drag-And-Drop to create new cues

It would be extremely helpful if MS7 brought back the ability to drag an image, video, or other file into the script and automatically create a cue, rather than having to create a blank cue then add the media. Thanks!

Export Announcement Script at movie

A feature suggestion: Please add the possibility of exporting the Announcement loop as a movie (mp4, mov). I currently have to export all the cues as jpegs, import them into powerpoint and then export the looping file as a movie so we can show it via thumb drive in our Narthex before the service.

Planning Center Song Arrangements

I love the ability to import songs from Planning Center and link songs within mediashout. However, one of the biggest issues we run into with this integration is the lack of support for the different arrangements that Planning Center supports. When a song is imported to Mediashout, MS only uses the parent song record and not the individual arrangements. There are different versions of popular songs that might use slightly different lyrics or verses, and it would be nice for MS to recognize these...

Warning Before Save If "Still Editing"; OR "Finished Editing" Button In Save Process

For a while now, there's been a really irritating quirk that if you don't click away from the edit box and/or go to another slide entirely, saving the cue to the cue library doesn't ACTUALLY save all your work. It saves some of it, but it's inconsistent from the average user's point of view. It's based on MS7 tracking whether you're still editing or not and disincluding any slides "still being edited" from the save functionality. This sometimes translates to a portion of the song or can translat...

MS-7.2.8: Transition Out Functionality for Objects

MS6 provided the ability to set a Transition In and a Transition Out for objects. MS7.2.8 only provides for the user to set the Transition In for objects. Add a function whereby the user can set the Transition Out for an object. Please add thanks. Hey John, Great suggestion. I'll make sure it is passed along. Although, I believe this was already in the works. :) Thanks, Ryan

Main/Stage Display Toggle in Presenter View

When you turn on Presenter View, the Main/Stage Display Toggle on the bottom of the app goes away. I'd really like to be able to toggle back and forth while staying in presenter view. Hey Tim, I see what you mean with how the Display Main/Stage goes away. Can you give me an example of why you would want to flip over to the Stage Display during Presenter View? This is really only used to flip over to make edits to the Stage. Let me know how you would use it so I can pass it on to our team and l...

Larger thumbnails in Presenter View

It is great that we can now change the size of the thumbnails in Presenter View in MS7. However, the largest size still seems to be too small to read for some of our volunteers. Is it possible to make the thumbnails zoom in to an even larger size?

Ability to display Song Metadata with Lyrics in MS7 like previous versions

Really missing the ability to add extra metadata to Songs in the Lyrics Library, and display them with the lyrics when used a Cue. Currently in MS7, the copyright section only includes Song ID, Title, Author, and Copyright. But in previous versions, you could include Hymnal Page numbers, Verse numbers, etc, by linking them to a specific page for display. Now, I have to type those separately, and copy and paste them to new lyrics, but they don't stick with they lyric library itself...unless so...

Editor view collapse cues on left

When I'm in editor view in MS7 I would like to be able to collapse the thumbnails and just see the titles, like I could in MS6 by checking Compact Script View. It would make navigating around to put cues in the right place much easier. On the first que hover over icons (the first one is the fire icon and ends with collapse).

Behavior of "Apply Formatting to all pages in cue"

The behavior of this selection seems to be inconsistent. Sometimes it comes right up, sometimes you have to click off the text box and back, sometimes it remains greyed out and doesn't work at all. Can we please look into this? Hey Mark, Yes, this is something that we will improve with each update. I have found the best option is to click off of the text box first, then right-click onto it and you'll find what you need that way. I'll pass this along to the team! -Ryan

Lyric search box clears when switching libraries

When you are searching for a song title, the search box clears every time you switch libraries, forcing you to retype the song title multiple times if you have to search over several libraries. It would be nice if it did not do this. Hey Mark, This is something that has already been mentioned, but I will make sure to bring it up again. Thanks! -Ryan

Counters - on timed slides and ESPECIALLY video media

In addition to the previous request to show counters on timed slides - it would be REALLY useful if the counters for videos were right there on the viewer or in the presenter screen as well, so you don't have to go looking for it. A feature I have on other products - a count DOWN timer - is very helpful too. Hey Mark, Thanks! I'll pass this along for you again! Thanks again, -Ryan I did find if you go to the Fire Control Plugin and select the video tab, it will display the video with a timer...

Manage Bibles

I see that all the possible Bibles are in the list, WOW! Over half of these Bibles will never be used by us so V7 needs to let the User manage which Bibles are visible. In V6 the User could Add or Delete Bibles which was great, a nice short list to pick from each service.

Suggestions for PDF Export

Since we've moved to streaming our services because of COVID-19 I tried the export to PDF in MS7 and found the following things that differed from what I got when I would print a script in MS6. - The cue titles aren't included. As a handout this would be very useful - If I choose to do anything other than 1x1, a new page is started for each cue, rather than starting the next cue in the next available space on the page. - The quality is MUCH better than what I would get when I printed it to a PDF...

Comment cue

I would like to see the return of the Comment cue in MS7. In MS6 I would insert comment cues to mark certain points in the service to make it easier to follow along and ensure that if I was inserting something I was in the right "section".

Folders in the Library

Being able to categorize images and videos into folders instead of scrolling through them all would be a nice feature. Hey Shannon, Thanks for your request! I can confirm that we do plan to add Folders and Sub-Folders to the Library section. As you said, this will make it much eaier to organize this library section. We hope to have that in an update coming soon. Thanks! -Ryan This question was answered 6 months ago with "hope to have that in an update coming soon". Any idea how much longer ...

Advise if saved Cues for a particular Lyric / Song are available in the Lyrics Library

In Mediashout 7 it would be helpful when inserting lyrics from the Lyrics library to have an area of the "Insert Lyrics" UI show if there are versions of that lyric available in the Cues Library and to allow the user to select an appropriate cue for that song directly. My reason for submitting this feature is feedback from fellow volunteers that they dislike having to check the Cues Library to see if an existing cue already exists before going to the lyrics library. Thank you for your consider...

timed slides

Add indicator that a slide is timed. The only way to tell now is to actually edit the slide. Hey Dennis, I love this idea. I will pass it along to make sure it is a planned addition. Thanks, -Ryan

Allow multiple instances of a part of a lyric to be updated when editing in the Cue

Since there seems to be valid scenarios for wanting an update made when editing a lyric cue to apply to every instance of a part in the cue (like fixing a typo in a chorus or refrain), but also not updating every instance - slight variations of the chorus which previously required Chorus 1 and Chorus 2, allow the editor to choose either at a global level (all their changes are one way or the other) or when they complete the edit (through a right-click "Apply to all") whether every instance shou...

Add support for m4v video files in MS7

Add support for m4v video files in MS7. Using Handbrake to process video backgrounds greatly stabilized MS6 for me. Handbrake chose to output m4v files by default rather than mp4 files. The converted files were remarkably smaller, and they work fine in MS6, so I began to convert all of my video backgrounds to m4v. Today I noticed that MS7 does not recognize m4v files. It seems like a simple change to make. It would save me having to reformat my backgrounds again. Thanks. Hey Bruce, Thanks for ...
