What is the reason to display the signals icon in the lower right corner of the projected slide, and is there any way to get rid of it? 

I have a standard slide with fade-in text that happen to be scripture references. To me it's just text, but proclaim must think it's more and puts that icon in the lower corner. 

The problem arises when the text box that I have at the bottom of the slide extends all the way to the edge and the icon obscures the text.

To see what I mean see my presentation Aug 12, 2018.

The symbol is just to alert people they can access the signal in one of our mobile apps if they wish to follow along.  Signals get automatically generated by things like Bible references so that people can tap the signal on their mobile device to open up the Bible to the verses' location.

If you wish to remove the signal from the slide, there will be a Signals tab to the right of the Notes tab.  Deleting the signal will remove the icon from the slide as well.

I've noticed in posts that people have been asking Faithlife to create a global way to turn off Signals for the entire presentation since from as long ago as 2011.  Is this something you are going to do?  It seems like a real annoyance to have to scour every presentation and turn off all the instance one by one, every week.  It may be nice tech feature for some, but it's not for everyone.

I would like to bring this up again. During today's sermon the pastor had 14 scripture references that he wanted faded in as he mentioned them. This generated 14 slides and 195 signal entries which I had to delete one at a time. I then made a small change to the text on the slide and Proclaim regenerated all 195 signal entries that I had to delete one at a time again. I admit that this is an exception, but I certainly think this is a good candidate for a "Setting".

Hi Brendon,

Thanks so much for your feedback. Just yesterday we shipped an update with a presentation setting that will allow you to hide the Signal icon. Just go into Settings > Presentation, scroll to the bottom and uncheck the "Show Signals icon" box.
