Configuring Script settings


To configure settings in the Script Area Settings dialog box:

  1. On the ribbon, click Settings tab > General Settings > Script.
  2. Change desired settings.
  3. Click OK.

The Script Settings tab contains the following sections and settings:

  • Default Script:
    • None. No script opens when you start MediaShout.
    • Most recent. The most recent script you used opens when you start MediaShout.
    • Specific file. Browse to the script file you want to open when MediaShout starts, then click Open.
  • Script Text Font. Use these options to select the font face and size of text appearing in the Script Area.
    • Ignore font settings and use Script scaling to adjust text.
  • Set Default Colors. Resets the Cue colors to the factory default settings.
  • Cue Colors. Use these options to select cue background colors according to cue type.
    • Highlight the Chorus. Check this option to highlight chorus names in the selected color.
  • Auto-Advance. Controls in this section determine how the Script Area behaves when its playback mode is set to Auto, Loop, or Shuffle Playback Mode. Playback Mode can be adjusted on the Settings tab in the Playback group.
    • Auto-Advance Duration: Select the number of seconds delay before the next cue is fired. 
    • Apply To. When selected, these options override the advanced settings in a cue. For instance, when the Script Area is in one of the auto-advance modes, MediaShout auto-advances from one cue to the next, even if a cue is set to Manual advance. Select any of the following cue types:
      • Manual cues
      • Timed cues
      • "End of" cues
  • Printing Options. Click to launch the Script Printing Options pop-up window.
    • Settings. Select the number of columns, cues only or include title, thumbnail, or notes. If notes is selected, choose the number of notes lines to include, from 0 to 5.
    • Pastor Print Mode. Select this option to override all other print settings. The script is printed with page thumbnails and lines for notes, similar to the PowerPoint handouts printing option.
