Auto-scroll Keep Cue at Top

In previous versions, there was an option to set where the cue was located - the options were Top, Middle, or As Needed. Currently, MS7 only keeps the active cue at the bottom of the screen. If it's not possible for both "editor" screen or "playback" screen, it would be very useful on the "playback" screen. This has been added in a recent update. Thank you.

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 Any update to this? Thanks, Adam

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". We also miss the Comment cue greatly. MS7 is supposed to be an improvement over MS6 and arbitrarily removing it is not welcomed. PLEASE bring it back. Would be nice to know if development has taken notice and let us know if they plan to bring the comments ba...

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 ...

Include "Insert..." on the Script "right-click menu"

It would be helpful to include Insert [lyric, Bible, media, text, slideshow] options as part of the menu when right-clicking in the script. Right now there are just three options.

Include Bible versions on Bible cues

Since you can put the Bible chapter and verse on the page, I would expect you could also include Bible version. Please add that to the reference information. I discovered the stage view allows for "tokens" to be included. They appear to be linked to "Key Objects". This is also true for lyrics. Please update/allow the Main view to also include tokens (abbreviation style, versions, song tokens).

HEIC images

Apple (?) has a new photo format called HEIC that are not viewable within v7. Please add that extension as a "shoutable" media format. Thanks.

Lyric Templates - Include Title formatting

Please include Title formatting to the Templates. With this, include formatting of the various "tokens" (Title, authors, copyright). This would appear to be an option because you have a "default" Title where each line is different (font = Arial 48; other lines are something like "Arial 20"). If you change the font/text box as a "present", the entire box changes to the new font. The title text box size/position also can't be saved.

Show more thumbnails in "creation" view

When creating a script, the only cue/page view is the active page. It would be much better to have all the thumbnails in the entire cue visible to see what needs to be changed when editing lyrics. I'm attaching two pictures - one with v6 that shows all the pages in the cue. The second is v7 which shows only 1 page (albeit, this specific cue only has 1 page, but it's still shows what I mean). The current v7 edit view is not user-friendly (also when too many cues are in the script, it there's not ...

Lyrics automatically added to the library

For both importing V6 scripts and V7 scripts created on another computer, lyrics should be added to the library automatically. I realize we can add V7 lyrics to the "Cue Library", but it would be useful if the lyrics would also go into the lyric database as well. With regards to importing v6, it would be helpful if v6 lyric cues came in as v7 lyric cues, rather than as a "text" cue.

Drag and Drop PPT into Script

Please include the option to drag and drop PPT files into the script. Either include a popup window to ask "how" to insert (image or presentation) or include an option under Settings for a default to insert as either of those (hot key of Ctrl to change to the other).

Web Presentation Integration - Prezi, Canva

As you continue to improve "media" presentations, please consider options for integrating web and streaming service options to the list. DVD and web cues were both removed in version 7. I understand that DVDs may not be as popular (or perhaps even using clips in sermons), but having some options for streaming (youtube, netflix, etc.) and presenting web-based presentations (Google slides, too) would be helpful.

Allow Lyrics to display more data on pages

Previous versions of MediaShout allowed for "verse" name and "Page" number to be listed as an object. It appears that the Bible Cue allows for the Chapter and Verse to be listed AND it's a constant across the pages. If you move it on one page, it moves on the other pages. Therefore, it appears that the programmers have been able to pull out certain data in the databases and code that onto the pages. It would seem that lyric information could also be added in a similar way. Thanks for considering...

Add a layer to Lyric cue that is on every page

I'd like the ability to add a layer to the lyric cue and have it show on every page in that cue. During the song played for communion we have an additional graphic we put up in the corner that has information about communion. Currently to add this I have to copy and paste the image onto every page in the Lyric cue. I'd like to be able to add a layer and choose to have it added to all the pages, similar to the way the title layer is available on all pages. I'd also like this to be available in th...

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...

Profiles for MS7

I sometimes edit and create on different computers. It would be helpful to have a profile that would follow me for all my presets and other options that I use. Now it just takes more time to make changes where having a profile with all my favorites would be handy.

Support four displays

We use the stage display for lower thirds lyrics--which is great--but we lose the capability of using the true stage display features. Please add support for a fourth display on Windows 10/11.

Jump to a Cue number by entering a number

I see all the shortcuts available in MS7, but I don't see a way to jump a cue number. Example: Worship Leader provides a list of several songs which are added to the script, but wants to be able to use any song at any time. (Granted: this is poor planning. It isn't needed very often.)

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.
