Did not seem to be any flexibility in system.  How do you put our logo in the system. How do you put powerpoint slides in

You can upload custom backgrounds (e.g. church logo) using the File... link on the background tab.

You can customize a service item using the customize button to make the text larger.

We have plans to add Powerpoint support in a future release.

I find the auto scaling of the slide fonts for songs to be somewhat annoying and would like to be able to disable that feature. However, I have found that limiting the line length and number of lines of lyrics per slide to 4-6 lines tends to work well for getting the font sizes right for projection.

I have not found much resolution in changing font size on songs which is an issue for our older adults.  Has there been any kind of resolution to this.  I am having to use powerpoint and uploading into Proclaim

Logos have a different take on song display. Poetry (songs) flow are greatly affected by how the lines are displayed - unfortunate line feeds can really put singers off.

So Logos tries to keep song lines together and limits the size of the font to the longest line(s) of a song. Or the vertical height of the verse becomes too high (in which case inserting a blank line will split the slide

If you scroll through your song and find the lines that are longest and insert a line feed into these lines you will find that you will be able to increase the size of the font until another line becomes to long to fit. You can carry on this process to silly lengths if you desire

just about fills the screen - in this case the vertical height is the limiting factor rather than the length of line.

Mike, thanks for all of your answers to questions that user have.  I'm trying hard to learn this program.

When you say to "insert a line feed" do you mean simply put in a hard return (enter key) to break the line?  When I do this, the broken line is indeed made, but it all aligns to the left.  I think the flow of the song is better if I can indent that broken half of the line to make it more obvious that it's not another line.  Is there any way to add an indent here?

Thanks for your help.

Hi Shelly

Shelly:

Yes  - but I think a soft break (Shift Enter) should work as well.

The only way I can think of doing this is to pad the next line wish spaces (being careful that the length of the new line doesn't become a limiting factor to the text size).

Mike, thanks for your response.  The soft return does work, but suprisingly adding spaces at the front of a text line makes no difference on the slide.  I'm learning to work with it!

Thanks again!
