Lighter/Standard User Interface Option

Please allow the user to switch between the current UX (dark mode) and either light mode or standard Windows chrome. I use Media Shout outside on a laptop in the summer and the current interface is too dark, not enough contrast to see the different elements. Thanks!

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. On the first que hover over icons (the first one is the fire icon and ends with collapse). If I understand your comment I think you're referring to the collapse that minimizes the pages within a cue. I'm referring to being able to show the cues in the left pane ...

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.

Implementation of NDI

Hi, It would simplify. Range of issues for us if NDI was implemented. At present we capture MediaShout on one screen and output this in the live stra ,however to use something like Zoom it is difficult to manage this process and also allow Zoom to be an input into Vmix. Even allow the stage output to be an NDI screen may help. Shalom Paul

User interface GUI slide bars

Please make the slide bars on the user interface bigger (wider), or stretchable so that it would be much easier to line the mouse up on them.

Direct video stop/start entry

Please make it possible to directly input the video start/stop as in 4.5. I do not yet see it in the wish list. Hey there! This is currently available in MediaShout 7. Get with our team (support@mediashout.com) and we can walk you through this. Thanks! -Ryan

Text outline

In prior versions, text outline operated differently. We would use it to make sure text stood out regardless of variations in a given background. For example, if the background has a white section, then white letters would be impossible to read. But with a black outline to give contrast, all was well. That has changed with version 7. Currently, the text outline option is applied inside the letters, so an outline of a certain size completely fills in the letter to the point where the original col...

Page Break/Text Boxes

PLEASE add Page Break to normal text boxes as well as Lyric and Bible boxes. I frequently cut and paste a call to worship, and have to manually copy and paste the text. It would be MUCH easier to just add a Page Break as needed. Hey Mark, I will pass this along. Just to be sure, you're only seeing this issue with text boxes that have been manually added. Is that correct? -Ryan That is correct. The "Page Break" only works on bible and lyric boxes. Additionally, the behavior of the "Apply Fo...

Sync Bible main to stage with book, chapter and verse from main.

Earlier versions synced the Bible reference to the stage from the main which was great. I know we can use tokens but they can't be centered or arranged in any way. It would be great if that ability could be reinstated.

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...

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...

Adding last few background graphics

When editing a cue and you are adding background graphics it would be helpful if say the last five graphics used would be an option in MS7. Currently I have to sometimes search several folders for a background. Listing the last few used backgrounds would speed up creation time.

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.

MS7.3 - Cues Library Double-Click Functionality

Permit the user to use the Double-Click method to insert the item wanted into a cue. The only option the user has is to select the item and then press the Insert key. Double-clicking the item is more intuitive.

Planning Center Song Arrangements

I love the ability to import songs from Planning Center and link songs within mediashout. However, one of the biggest issues we run into with this integration is the lack of support for the different arrangements that Planning Center supports. When a song is imported to Mediashout, MS only uses the parent song record and not the individual arrangements. There are different versions of popular songs that might use slightly different lyrics or verses, and it would be nice for MS to recognize these...

MS-7.2.8: Transition Out Functionality for Objects

MS6 provided the ability to set a Transition In and a Transition Out for objects. MS7.2.8 only provides for the user to set the Transition In for objects. Add a function whereby the user can set the Transition Out for an object. Please add thanks. Hey John, Great suggestion. I'll make sure it is passed along. Although, I believe this was already in the works. :) Thanks, Ryan

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...
