Pages Area

Pages Area

The Pages Area is new in MediaShout 6. It allows you to see all pages in the selected cue. It is located in the center of the Control Screen below the Inline Editor. Click a cue in the Script Area to launch it in the Pages Area.

You can collapse pages so only the title bar for each page is visible. This can make it easier to work with large cues. To switch to compact view, on the Settings tab in the Control Screen group, select Page Area Compact View to toggle it on. Clear Page Area Compact View to toggle it off.


 

Editing Page Options

 

To launch the Page Options dialog, click the arrow in the page title bar. The dialog box contains controls for timings, skipping the page, and notes. You can create and edit notes for the page by clicking Custom then writing notes in the box that appears.

If you prefer to edit Page Options in a separate window, on the Home tab, click Page and Cue Options. The pop-up window has all of those same controls as the dialog box launched from the Pages Area. You can edit all pages in the selected cue using the Page and Cue Options pop-up window by selecting the page thumbnails on the left-hand side of the window. If you can't see the thumbnails, drag the left border to resize the thumbnail pane.

Other page options are available in a drop-down menu. Highlight the page in the Pages Area, then right-click. Available options are Fire, Insert (Image, Video, Audio), Skip or Unskip, Add Page (Blank, Stanza), Cut/Copy/Paste, Delete, or Select All.

 

Adding and Deleting Pages

 

To add a new page to the cue, in the Pages Area, click Add Page. A new page is inserted immediately after the highlighted page. 

To delete a page, highlight the page, right-click, then select Delete.

Note: You cannot add or delete pages or edit the page order in the middle of a stanza. For instance, Verses 1a, 1b, and 1c all stay grouped together whether you add, delete, or move any of the pages.

 

Editing the Page Order

 

It's easy to change the page order in MediaShout 6. In the Pages Area, drag and drop the page thumbnail to a new location. (Lyrics are a special circumstance as noted above in Adding and Deleting Pages.)
