Bible App Events integration

With the new plug in section in ms7, and the growing number of churches using the Events feature in the Bible App, being able to integrate that, so church members can get the link drift from the system would be cool. Hey there, Thank you for this Request! I can see how a lot of our Customer's would like to be able to do this, too. Can you give me a little more information about specifically you would like to do with this? Would you just want to share Events from the App through your MediaShou...

Glow effect for text

It would be nice to have the choice to add a glow around the text as an alternative to text outline, shadow, or text box coloring to enhance text visibility, with the ability to change the glow's size, color and opacity. It would make it easier to blend in with the background while still highlighting the text. Hey Kris! Thank you for your suggestion! I'll make sure to pass this along to the Team to see if this is something that can be added into a future build. Thanks so much! -Ryan

Song Tokens should remove the number if there is only one of that type

When displaying song tokens for the song, such as "verse 1" and "chorus 1," Mediashout should only display only "Verse" and "Chorus" if there is only 1 verse and 1 chorus in the song. Hey Jeremiah, Thank you for your submission! I see what you mean. I will pass this along to our Development Team to see if this is something that can be added. I do know that there are other higher priority Features/Upgrades that we would want to accomplish before we add this, but it could be something very easy t...

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...

Diversify Song Database

Hi I'm a user at a predominantly african-american church and the only issue I have with the system is that any songs I try to find lyrics for by african-american artist are not in the song database, causing me to have to type, or drag-and-drop from the internet into Mediashout. We do a variety of songs from all christian artist, but it's a little taxing to have to repeat this process for non-K-Love type songs. I don't know if your database is based on submission by the artist or selection from...

Websocket interface

i still using showcockpit.com and they create interfase for many software, the only they need are websocket to make the connection. This integration allow automate the light, lyrics, the band (using ableton or reaper) and the soundboard. thanks! Hey Leandro, We don't currently interface with them and I don't believe that this is something we have planned. I will definitely pass this along to our Team for consideration, however. Thanks so much! God Bless! -Ryan

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...

Shuffle option for audio playlist script control

Please consider adding a shuffle option to a play audio playlist script control. Currently you can shuffle tracks in a playlist when playing through the playlist window, but if you insert a script control cue to play a playlist, there appears to be no way to set that playlist to shuffle. This would be very helpful as I have a script template I start with each week for our service, I have added a script control to play a playlist of prelude music before the service, but each time I fire that co...

Floating Scripts

Hi, Many of my scripts use slides or structure from previous times. It would be great if there was the abilty to float scripts and drag and drop them to a newly constructed script. At the moment you copy from the old script, then return to the first script, re-find the place the position (the script has returned to the top) for pasting - then paste. It could be a lot simpler. Paul Hey Paul! I see that this has already been requested as a Feature Request here: https://support.mediashout.com/2631...

Text Color change independent of font size

I often have lines which alternate between bold, non-italic and italic, non-bold and sometimes differing sizes. If all lines are selected and the color is changed, everything goes to non-bold, non-italic, intermediate size. Neither Outline or shadow affects font size or style. Can the font engine be modified to allow independence of color change or would that put it in the category of outline and shadow in that a change of color would perforce apply to all text in a cue and changing color of a s...

Font Choice Pulldown Menu

Is it possible to either keep the pull-down menu for the fonts open as one searches for the most suitable font for the cue or have the edited font update on the editor as one hovers over the fonts in the pull down menu? Our church uses Chinese fonts in half of our services and because the font pull-down does not show Chinese fonts in the pull-down then it is hard to choose the right font without doing many repetitive steps that could be avoided if either of the improvements were added. Thanks fo...

Keyboard Key for Italics

When inputting text in the inline editor, I would love to be able to click "Ctrl+I" to change text from regular to italics. The "Ctrl+B" works for bold, but when I try the "Ctrl+I" it just eliminates the text altogether. Thank you! Thanks for the suggestion! We do have this feature request as SIX-885 in our system. It looks like this Bug has actually been around for a while now. The Developers are continuing to look into this to determine whether or not this is something that can be easily fixe...

Editing Bible Verse cue titles

In v5, I was able to edit the title of a cue when Pastor only wanted part of a verse to be displayed (e.g. Psalm 36:7b). That ability went away in v6. The cue list is a little confusing then, as you could have consecutive cues with the "same" title when they are really Psalm 36:7a and Psalm 36:7b. It's quicker to double check your entries if they could have different titles. I used that ability quite often in v5, and I miss it now that it's gone. I would be most grateful if it could be restored.

Rendering Fonts Properly in MS6

I have called tech support at least twice about this phenomenon and they do not have an answer for me, even after seeing it with their own eyes from a remote login. I use Arial 36 for most of my lyric projection. When clicking in the text box (to edit a lyric or whatever) the text renders perfectly fine in the text box, but when finished and clicking to project the text, the quality of the text is horrible! It even appears to be rendering with a different character set! For instance, the copyrig...

Adding Comments to a Script

When adding a comment to a script, the Cue Properties box for the new comment opens automatically but the default text "New Comment" is not highlighted. If I am adding a new comment, I would like to start typing (or pasting) the comment right away instead of having to do a CTRL-A to select all of the default text. Also, could the input box for the comment be a little bigger, i.e. several lines? When i'm editing a long comment it would be nice to see the whole comment at one time instead of ha...

Text outline does not function properly when text is left justified

The text outline is cut off at the edge of the text box when the text is left justified. See the attached screen shot John, This is actually a very complex bug that the developers are working on. However, we do hope to be able to fix it. In the future, please use this link to report issues like this. https://support.mediashout.com/848988-Submit-a-Bug-for-MediaShout-6-Windows.

Numbered Lists

When I create a text object on a cue and make a numbered list, the last item on the list loses it's numbering when done. A single numbered item shows no numbering when done. Todd, This one is already reported to the developers as a bug.

Sections Can't Be Moved Except To End

I usually compartmentalize my scripts with Sections that match the parts of the worship service. In MS4, I could drag a section to a different place within the script as needed. In MS6, I can only drag and drop it at the end of the script. Am I missing something? Todd, This one looks like a bug. I will report this to the developers for fixing.
