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...

Export Cues as Graphics Files (.jpg)

In MS5, we were able to export the entire script as .jpg files. This allowed us to create lower thirds for live broadcast from the original script, then export them for use with WireCast. No way to do that now, so we are just staying with MS5 on our streaming computer for the time-being. If you have PowerPoint on the computer with MediaShout you can try running CUE2PPT11 and converting slides to PowerPoint then in PowerPoint export to JPG. We do not have PowerPoint but I think it will work. ht...

Running two or more scripts

I always run at least two separate scripts, one for pre-meeting notices and one for the actual worship. When running the pre-meeting script I often need to go into the worship script to edit some cues, then back to pre-meeting script. However, whenever I then go back to the other script it always is at the top of the presentation. It would be helpful if when switching scripts, it remembered the cue you were previously on and you wouldn't need to scroll through the script to get to the cue you...

Allow Timed cue page transitions to be longer than 99.9 seconds

In MS5, I had a multi-page cue in each of my service scripts that had: - a looping video background common to all pages, - a PNG (with transparency) foreground graphic ("Welcome! Our service will be starting soon." or "Have a blessed day!") common to all pages, - and on each page of the cue (except the last), a different MP3 audio file attached with a 3-second crossfade and a Timed transition to control how much of the song plays before the next page/song begins. It was a pre- or post-service, m...

Audio playlist 'playing now' indicator

We use Audio playlist to play pre-service music, followed by a Sound Control: Stop Sound cue to stop it. At the same time, the sound desk mutes the computer input. On a couple of occasions, the Playlist has not stopped playing, so when later in the script you come to play eg a video and the sound desk un-mutes the computer input, the Playlist is still there playing music. Could we have a visual indicator to show when an Audio Playlist is playing, as a reminder?

Stage Display template token for "Next Cue"

The "Next page/next line" token is a fantastic feature, allowing singers to know which stanza follows the current one before the operator even advances the page. But it would be very useful if this feature was expanded to include (or if a sibling token was developed specifically to show) the same information across cues. For example, to allow us to see a hint of the first stanza of Song #2 while currently displaying the final stanza of Song #1. This would also be beneficial in the Announcement L...

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 ...

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.

Instantly fire from Insert Lyrics / Bible

I would like to see a play button or a fire button on the insert lyric and insert bible so you could display quickly without having to add them to the script as a cue.

Sliders

I think I have made this request before but can't find it in the list so I am going ahead with it again. When playing media from a cue the progress bar in the top right of the screen shows a slider moving along. This is the same colour as the background and is not always easy to see where we are in the audio or video media. This is also the same in the Audio Playlist. Attached is graphic with these items highlighted so you can see what I am getting at. Thanks. Graham Thanks Graham. When we...

Titles for pages in a cue

I'd like to be able to title the pages in a cue much like I can title the cue itself. While I can change the cue title using the Cue Properties drop down, I'd like to change the page title using the Page Properties drop down. I have been editing the .ssc file with an XML editor to set the page titles once a script has been built but would prefer to do it directly within MS6. Todd, This one is also on the list and although I don't have any dates, the developers are scheduled to work on this af...

'Dark' colour scheme comment cue

When using the 'dark' colour scheme, could the text in a 'comment cue' be a light colour (white?) to enable it to be clearly visible on the dark background. Currently it is very difficult (almost impossible) to read on the 'dark' setting.

Deleting cues from MS 6

I find it annoying that MS 6 jumps to the 1st cue in the script when I delete a cue. Could it instead go to the cue just before the one that was deleted?

Text formatting when pasting in MS 6

I liked it better when pasted text would use the destination format (like what MS 5 does) instead of the source. If you Paste using the Right Click menu option, it picks up the formatting of the destination. If you Paste using the Keyboard Shortcut of CTRL+V, you do not. Thanks! Thanks Loretta for providing the shortcut. We are looking to improve this so that Copy/Paste works the same. But we still have users that need to be able to keep the source formatting. When all said and done, Copy/Past...

Timer Icon - On Timed slides.

See the attached image, it would be nice to have a clock icon and the time that is setup for a timed slide in the list so you know it will be auto advancing. A stretch goal would be to have the time countdown when active, and static when not active aka if there is a timer for 15 sec it would look like my attachment when idle, then be counting down to switch when active. Oh forgot to add this would be nice on videos too... Jon, This is one that the developers are already looking into. I don't t...

Insert bible and lyric and text to auto close

I know it's pretty popular to not have those dialogue boxes automatically close after inserting in the schedule, but for me, I rarely do multiple songs or bible verses next to each other in the schedule. It's a small extra step, but could you make the default where it doesn't close automatically, but give people like me a one time popup after hitting insert to ask if we would like it to auto close? There could also be a check box that allows for the message to not be visible again... Peter, ...

Stage Clock Time Formatting

Dear MS Team, Thank you so much for adding the stage clock functionality! I have been wishing for it a long time. I think there are two options which would make it better. 1. A toggle to turn seconds on/off. 2. A toggle for 12/24 time formating. Appreciate the support and consideration! Although we cannot disable seconds, we are looking into changing the format to a 12 hour format. Thanks for the response. That is a shame about the seconds.

Adding page breaks in "Isert Lyric" window

When editing a Lyric in the "Insert Lyric" window, CNTRL-ENTER causes a page break *AND* a blank line to be inserted. It should only insert a page break. Also, CNTRL-ENTER causes the cursor to jump back to the start of the verse. It should remain in place. Arlin, Thanks for the input. This is actually marked as a bug (SIX-1858) and the developers will be fixing this in a future update. If you want to see if a bug was fixed in a particular update, the link below is to the Change Log. https://...

MS6 Windows - Remember control window size & position

Please give the option, such as 'last position' / 'full screen' so we can choose where the control window opens. Our workflow has us using the desktop; folders; and other apps while running services. MS6 always starts in full screen mode; meaning there is a few extra steps required to un-maximize and shrink the window down to the desired size. Every other program's (web browser, file explorer, Office, etc) default behavior is to open to the last size & position -- except MS :) Will, Thanks fo...
