Cue and Page Options

There are three areas where you can access and edit Cue and Page Options: on the Home tab in the Cue Options group, on a cue in the Script Area, or on a page in the Pages Area. What selections are available depend on the type of cue you are editing.

On the Home tab, click the Cue and Page Options button to launch the Cue Page pop-up window that shows all cue and page options for that particular type of cue. 


Cue Options


In the Script Area, click the down arrow button on the title bar of a cue to launch the Cue Options pop-up window. Depending on the type of cue, the pop-up window will contain one or more of these options:

  • Name of cue. Click to edit the name that appears in the title bar of the cue.
  • Transition effect. Click the arrow to select from a list of transition options.
  • Inherit Background. Ignores the background assigned to the current cue and plays the background from the previously fired cue.
  • Skip Cue. Select to skip the cue during presentation without deleting it from the script.
  • Time Trigger. Not available to all cue types. Click to create a Time Trigger Command.
  • Screen Resolution and Repaginate. If a cue shows an orange notification triangle, the Cue Options pop-up window shows the resolution of the cue and the Repaginate button. See Edit a Cue for more about notifications.
  • Library Settings. For cue types that use libraries to store data, Cue Options includes Cue Date Modified and Library Date Modified fields. If the cue shows a yellow notification triangle, the most recent modified date is notated. Use the buttons to Refresh from Library, Save to Library, or Add Copy to Library. See Edit a Cue for more about notifications.
  • Cue specific options:
    • Lyric cues: Song and copyright information.
    • Bible cues: Page break, Bible version, Bible passage, verse numbers, and dual Bible settings.
    • Liturgy cues: Removing or editing the labels.
    • Slideshow cues: Full stretch and in slide and out slide settings.
    • Web cues: URL and scaling settings.
    • Sound Controls: Target, action, volume, and fade settings.
    • Script Controls: Target, loop, advance to, and schedule settings.

For more information about working with specific types of cues, please see individual topics under Working with Media in a Cue. 


Page Options


In the Pages Area, click the down arrow button on the title bar of a page to launch the Page Options pop-up window. The pop-up window contains the following options:

  • Advance
    • Manual. Page will only advance when the next page or cue is fired manually.
    • Timed. Timed advance is a way to automatically advance through the pages of a multi-page cue.
    • End of Media.  Page will not advance until the media file (audio or video) ends.
  • Advance Time. If Timed Advance is selected, choose the number of seconds the page is displayed before advancing to the next page in the cue.
  • Skip Page. Select to skip the page without deleting it from the script.
  • Notes. Select NoneText Page, or Custom. To add a custom note, click Custom then type the note in the box. 
  • Apply to All Pages. Click to apply the settings to all pages in the cue.
