When using Preaching Mode on my Logos iPad app, clicking on a sermon slide works great--it comes up in Proclaim just fine. Can I blank that slide somehow?  We use Proclaim with our livestream so we need to be able to show a slide and then turn it off again without putting a new slide up.  Can I turn off / blank a slide when using Preaching Mode?

Can you describe your setup a little more?

For example, I have full-screen slides in the room from Proclaim, and a virtual screen that goes out with the camera feed for our live stream. For slides that I want to show and then switch to video, I just include the same slide twice. In Proclaim, I make the Livestream version of the first one "Duplicate" and the second "Blank." So I click the first slide when I want people to read it, then click the second one so that the live stream will go to the camera, and the fullscreen slide will stay up for the people in the room. It is not elegant, but it does work well.

At our church what people see in house is the same as the livestream feed.  Right now when I tap on a slide in my Preaching Mode screen, Proclaim displays the slide and that gets integrated with our video (most of our Proclaim slides are lower thirds, but some are full screen).  Our Proclaim operator is currently indexing my sermon slides and they blank them after they've been on screen long enough.  I'd like to do my own sermon slide indexing from my iPad, but I can't blank / turn off the slides. I'm wondering if I can do that from the app?

It is a slight pain but I think you would do it the same way that I do. Create a second slide in Sermon Editor (maybe type "Blank" as a header) immediately after your content. In Proclaim, delete the contents and set the background to transparent, but leave the slide in place. Then, when you select your slide that says "Blank" in Sermon Editor, your slides will go blank and your video will show.
