For detailed instructions on how to work with templates, see the Inline Editor topics for Cue Templates.


Working with the Template Galleries


The template galleries allow you to select a template for the cue highlighted in the script. You can scroll through the gallery to view all templates that are available for that cue type. Main and Stage templates work the same way:

  • The default template is marked by a thumbtack icon.
  • The active template shows a red title bar.
  • To make the template available for additional cue types, select either Bible, Lyric, Text, or Liturgy. Note: You can make all templates available for all cue types but be aware that making layout changes to one cue type can affect the layout of another cue type.

  • If you make changes to the template in the editor, click Save Template to permanently save them to the template file. If you don't want to overwrite the current template, click Save Template As and select a new filename.


Editing the Twitter Template


To select or edit the templates used for Twitter cues, click Edit Twitter then select the templates you want to use in the Main Template and Stage Template galleries.

For instructions on setting up Twitter cues, see the Twitter topic.
