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.

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 ...

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 PD...

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...

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?

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!

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 ...

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.

Capture card support for V7

I use MS since V3...It had been very helpful to have Mediashout supporting capture cards from since. We had been using the computer for video mixing, streaming and we can do everything with one powerful computer. I was so disappointed when v7 sacrificed the support for capture card for stability, and I could only use V6...until forever (i guess) Please help our church. I understand that stability is your concern, and MS7 can actually limit the array of choices, and we can buy those cards in or...

Add ability to collapse cues in Presenter View

I need to be able to collapse cues in Presenter View so that I can see more cues without scrolling. If I have some sermon slides with several scriptures, I need to jump back and forth between the slides and the scriptures. After a scripture is read, I would like to be able to collapse that cue to make other cues readily accessible. A button at the top to "expand all cues" would quickly get me back to the initial view. Hey Lyle, I like that idea. I will pass this along to our Development Tea...

In Presenter View, space bar should ALWAYS take me to the next que

In Presenter View, space bar usually takes me to the next cue, but not always. Consider this scenario: You're in edit view, The band starts and you click on the first lyric cue to launch the first slide. Then you click on Presenter view... and WAIT... and WAIT.... finally, presenter view comes up (now you're behind because the team has started singing) so you quickly hit the space bar to advance the slides... BUT... instead, you're switched back to edit view. This should NEVER happen! Hey Ly...

Lag on Lyric Insertion MS 7

After I have opened the Insert Lyrics box and have double clicked on "Folders" it takes a minimum of 33 seconds for my list of songs to appear in the box! These are songs that we brought over from MS 4.5. In the outdated MS 4.5, my Song Library opened up immediately and a great number of those songs were previously text formatted and had backgrounds, making them ready for me to insert into a script again. One would think this would create additional data? In the latest MS 7 version, none of m...

MS7 Drag and Drop Functionality

The ability to Drag and Drop into the Cue Editor has become unresponsive most of the time and will not Drop and "stick" in the cue. As a work-around, if I go to Layers-Background, I can then choose the same image that I had attempted to Drag and Drop, double click and it will do as it has been told. What is going on? Hey Rita, I just saw your Bug Report on this. I am not seeing any issue with this on my side and on version 7.2.5.1431. If you are on that version, get with our support tea...

Lyric search to ignore punctuation

Please could the search line in add lyrics ignore punctuation? Currently "Come let us join" will return no results if the song is in as "Come, let us join" and vice versa. This results in frustration when searching, and sometimes songs being added multiple times because the song is not found. Thank you Hi, I apologize for the delayed response. I reached out to our Team and was able to verify that this is something that our Developers are currently looking into. We hope to be able to add this...

Guides in the Editor (Text, Bible, Lyric)

It would be extremely helpful to be able to place guidelines while editing text, Bible and lyric cues that persisted across all pages, similar to the ruler guides in PowerPoint, Photoshop and Illustrator. Right now there are "smart guides" that allow you to (sort of) align objects to other objects or to the center of the page, but these seem to have a little play in them (i.e. an object will snap to a smart guide but you can still move it a few pixels before it will stop you from moving it compl...

Creating an mp4 from announcements

It would be great to add a feature to be able to convert the announcement loop into an mp4 that loops and holds the same transitions and timing that have been set. We currently have to export the list as jpegs, import them into PowerPoint and resetting all the timings, etc to match what we had, then we can export the loop as an mp4 which we put on a thumb drive and show in our narthex prior and after our service. Hey Bruce, That's not a bad idea and it seems doable. I will mention it to the tea...

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...
