Use Presets to Format Other Objects

In MediaShout, you can save the formatting of individual objects and sounds to a type of template. This object-based template is called a preset. Like templates, presets can save you hours of time designing presentations.

The object itself is not saved to the preset, just the formatting. For instance, if you want different images to appear in an exact position at the bottom-right corner of every cue, save the image object as a preset. Then when you insert a new graphic in another cue, instead of moving it around to get it into the right place, you can apply the preset to position it.


Creating a preset


To create a preset, follow these steps:

  1. Open a cue in the Inline Editor.
  2. Format an object, as needed.
  3. With the object highlighted in the Inline Editor, on the Home tab, click Apply Preset.
  4. Enter a descriptive name for the preset then press Enter.
  • To save changes to an existing preset, edit the object then leave the name as is in the Save As field, then press Enter. When you save changes to a preset, it does not change the formatting of already existing cues using that preset.
  • To save a preset as the default for that object type, click Set as Default.

To delete a preset, click Apply Preset then click the red X next to the preset name.


Applying a preset to an object


To apply a preset to an Other Object, follow these steps:

  1. Open a cue in the Inline Editor.
  2. Click the object you want to format.
  3. Click Apply Preset.
  4. Click the preset name to apply it.
