As I was preparing for today's sermon I wanted to give the sermon editor a go.
So far; I have been using LibreOffice with a style template that I have tweaked over the years.
It's a well greased process and I know exactly how to put things down so that I can read it well and speak to the congregation without too much distraction.

Now, two things immediately got in the way of me producing similar output with the sermon editor.

(1) I was not able to produce a carriage return without beginning a new paragraph. Normally, this is something Shift+Enter. Text that I copied over from LibreOffice was good (although the sermon editor added an additional "blank" character at the beginning of a new line which I had to remove subsequently.) But no matter what I tried, I was not able to break the text to a new line from within the sermon editor. Any ideas anyone?

(2) More importantly, however, I was not able to figure how I could change the font size (let alone the font) in the exported document. I preach from tablet, so I exported the sermon to PDF. The font was way too big to have enough information on screen. So, I used the "speaker" settings to make the font smaller. It was okay then (although I still would have liked to change the font to a serif font for better readability), but then the text was too small on screen to be still legible. Must be an age thing. :-D
Anyways, is there a way for me to change/replace/configure the font for export? If not, I think I will have to stick with LibreOffice...

Cheers
Thomas

There's not exactly a way to do that, but consider this easy hack. With a little tweaking you'll find the correct balance between Sermon Editor and PDF Printer settings. Change the PDF Page size to A3. This will put more text on the Page, when viewed on a Tablet more text will be visible per page.
