File Tab

File Tab

The File tab on the ribbon replaces the File menu in previous versions of MediaShout. It contains the following options:

  • Save (Ctrl+S) – Saves the existing script in its current location.
  • Save As – Saves the script, but allows you to change the filename or location before saving to avoid overwriting an existing script.
  • Open (Ctrl+O) – Opens a dialog box to browse and select an existing script.
  • New (Ctrl+N) – Creates a new script tab in the Script Area. 
  • Repaginate – Corrects sizing issues for cues that were created at a different screen resolution. Note: Because it resizes text, repaginating may change the number of pages contained in each cue.
  • Pack – Creates a copy of the script and all media in a single folder for easy transport to another computer or for archiving.
  • Pack Current Script to Cloud - Sends a copy of the active script to Cloud Sync.
  • Print (Ctrl+P) – Prints a copy of the selected script. There are new print options in MediaShout 6. To set printing options, on the Settings tab, click General Settings. Click Script tab > Printing Options.
  • Print Preview – Opens a preview of the how the script will look when printed. You can change page views, zoom, copy, and print from the preview window. 
  • Exit - Exits MediaShout.

For Mac users, the key commands for these options would be Cmd key instead of Ctrl key.
