I have the option checked to show the credits on the "last lyric" slide. However, whenever I go on air, the credits are showing up in random places. Here's a screenshot of the preview slides. I can confirm they show up in the same place when the presentation is on air. Please advise.

Sorry about this and thanks for the report. We just changed this code a little recently to allow you to specify a title slide in the verse order picker. This way you can start with blank and then have the title (or multiple other situations).

Sounds like there must have been an unintended side effect. So we will take a look right away. 

Thanks again for the report

Hi Jordan

I hope this is a step on the way to allowing a 'start background music on x slide' facility.

In the meantime there is a bit of counter intuitive behaviour according to my (very quick test).

Unless I untick the 'show title on title slide' box the first slide is a title slide even if I specify it as the last slide!

Perhaps this box should be changed to 'create title slide' this to default to the first slide unless otherwise positioned?

We just shipped an update that should fix that lyrics issue.

Specifying a title slide in the verse order is an addition to the current functionality. So that means if you have that box checked it will behave as before.

So what you are seeing is expected if you have 'show title slide' checked. You can uncheck this box, and still have a title slide by adding it in the verse order picker. You can also check the box and then specify a title at the end as well.

Eh not quite, but we do hear you! If we did implement this it would probably be something specific to songs like, "Start music on first lyric"

Would that accomplish your goals?

It would be just the thing.

To reiterate (in case you haven't read my earlier missives on this subject)...

Often with small groups and especially in situations such as residential care folk are nervous of singing out if they are the only voices heard.

By playing a track with a church choir or group the folk can join in with the singing and not feel self conscious.

The problem is that a lot of these tracks have no introduction so you have to get folk ready to sing as soon as the 'song item' starts.

Having the attached music start on the first lyric slide allows the 'title slide' to show without one having to make a separate title slide that is a content item and not part of the song item itself.

Thanks for giving this some consideration.
