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...

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 ...

Save settings, like skip slide, to Cue Library

I would like to save our announcement loop cue to the Cue Library with the settings applied to that cue. I do see if we set the timer for each slide in the loop, that it would carry that into the Cue Library but it won't save if we have that slide set to skip. We have some slides that we only show periodically and skip the other weeks, but don't want to have to set them to skip each week. Could that setting be saved into the Cue Library. Kind of same thing, but understand this might be more comp...

Ability to sync cues to stage monitor for entire script

It would be helpful to sync each cue to the staging monitor with one click for entire script rather than clicking each cue. That way everything is there for stage and adjustments can then be made. Hey there, Yes, this is something we have planned to add into MediaShout 7 in a future update. Thanks! -Ryan

Lyrics - Provide Title page and license info on copyright line

Provide a better way to insert a title page on a song with copyright info, including license. I would like this also. I manually create Title pages for lyric cues.

Default Bible Translation

We would like to be able to add several versions of the Bible to our library and choose one version as our default. It seems that the only way to do that currently is to add the default version last. If there is already a way to do this, I'd love to know. Thanks!

Script Control To Toggle Remote

I love the toggle remote feature. Our new pastor likes to control a powerpoint during his sermon, and the toggle remote feature keeps the DSAN remote from accidentally triggering cues during the rest of the service while it's in his pocket/etc. What would be incredible is if, instead of going into the menus during his sermon and toggling remote - then needing to remember to toggle it off after the sermon (I am putting comment reminders for the operator in the script right now), we could instead ...

Delete a blank page from a cue

I've been trying to make a liturgical cue, basically 3 calls and responses.They are short, but the last two responses take two lines at 60 pt. (I'm using 60pt Arial for readability). I tried to space the lines 1.2, but I got a blank page. When I reverted back to single line, I retained the blank page. Can it be deleted? While I've got three layers on the first page, only the 1st layer shows up on the blank page. Often I get the same thing happening on lyrics, where once a stanza has overlapped o...

Add capability to put linked text boxes on text cues

I think what is requested in suggestion line is what is needed. It seems to be much more difficult to create a multipage text cue in MS7 than in MS6. We use many multipage text cues, and the process to create them is usually: Create first page, paste all the text into the text box on that page (in MS6, multiple pages are created automatically when there is wrapping), then edit the pages using page breaks to do appropriate pagination. And, apply common formatting to all pages as needed. Hey D...

Ability to Export Lyrics and Bible Cues from a Script to a Text File

Add the ability to export Lyrics and Bible Cues in a script to a single text file for review by Worship Leaders. We have a number in our congregation who are visually impaired. They have the ability to create Braille documents but we will need to provide them the text. Being able to export an entire script as text (with an option for repeats etc.) will be huge for them. Hey Mike! This is awesome! We are working on some tools to do exactly what you describe. Stay with us as we work through t...

Notes on cues for operator

It would be nice to have the ability to add notes to the individual slides in the cues that only the operator sees, similar to PowerPoint. Notes such as "drum solo this chorus" would be a great help for the sound guy next to me, or "repeat ending possible" for the MS operator.

Spotify/Streaming Music Service Integration

You can already use audio playlists by importing mp3's or linking to iTunes playlists-- but it would be great to integrate with Spotify or other streaming services for those that have playlists where the mp3 files are not actually saved on the computer.

Load "Insert Lyric" Screen with Cursor in Search Box

I would like to ability to start typing the name of the lyric immediately upon entering the "Insert Lyric" Screen instead of pressing the tab button 4 times or using to mouse to select it. This would increase the speed of finding the desired lyric to insert in to your script.

Drag Lyrics into Script from Insert Lyric Window/Insert Multiple Songs at Once

We would like to have the ability to open the lyric window, then drag songs right from the library list into the script. This might be helpful also to insert multiple songs into the script and only having to open the insert lyric window once, as opposed to having to go back into the Insert Lyric window and click "insert" again for each and every song.

Resizing of Page Area Thumbnails

I would love to see a way to set the size on the page area thumbnails - aka a way to resize the thumbnails of the slides in the cue area, or tell it how many rows / columns of thumbnails to have there? (I purchased a new PC last week to take care of issues we have had and bought a 29” ultra-wide to replace our current widescreen monitor (2560x1080). Hoping to get more real-estate for things like the viewers section and the cue thumbnails area.) I would love to have say 6-8 columns of thumbnails ...

Import pictures as pages to a single cue

I would like to be able to create multiple pages, from multiple jpg files, all under one cue - for instance when creating announcement slides from a batch of jpg's. If they are all under one cue, I could see them all at once in the page area. I can do this very painstakingly by creating blank pages within a cue and then importing the image into it, but I'd like to import them all at once. I think I can import multiples at once if I make each one a separate cue, but then I can't see them all a...

Option to save settings in the script file

Option to save MediaShout settings in the script file. To save all settings, templates details, screen settings, etc, right in the Script file. That will make a reinstallation a lot easier and with less headaches. If I reinstall MediaShout I would not have to reconfigure it because all the settings are in the script file. Also, I can have different settings for a different script.
