It's been a while since I followed the development of Proclaim, and I may have even asked the question back when it was in beta, but consistently, the only feature really missing from proclaim is the ability to actually show the images on the confidence monitor during an image slideshow. Our pastor preps his slides in Powerpoint, and that's never going to change, so we import them, but he is always turning around to look at the screen to make sure the slide he wants is up. Further he doesn't understand why he can't just see the slides on the confidence monitor like he used to before we switched to Proclaim. I try to explain to him that we gained all kinds of usability and stability when we switched, but this is the feature request that really needs to happen, or I'm concerned we're headed back to buggy, crash all the time alternative software, and I'm not really fired up about that. 

Is this something on the horizon?

Do you have access to an iPad? The new Proclaim Remote for iOS includes a follow feature which could be used as a confidence output for the pulpit.

We don't have access to an iPad, and between his sermon notes and his Bible, there isn't room on the pulpit.

I'm going to see what we can do here. There are complications when presenting multiple web page and embedded PPT views but we may be able to come up with a solution that works for most users. Thanks for the feedback.

If it helps, I'm using the "Convert to Images" option which is just converting it to an image slideshow. 6 years of experience has taught me that Powerpoint presentations are finicky things best converted to something far more stable.
