Slide Edit Panel


Image: The Slide Edit Panel. Changing the size of the Preview Panel
affects how the font controls appear in the Slide Edit Panel

The Slide Edit Panel is located at the bottom right of the LiveWorship window. If you have the smaller Preview Panel selected, you will have WYSIWYG or "What You See Is What You Get" font selection controls. The size of the Preview Panel is set in the Image Preferences. You may also see the drop down menus for font selection and size if you have reduced the overall size of your LiveWorship window.

Depending upon the tab selected above the Preview Panel, the Slide Edit Panel allows you to see and edit either the slide marked for editing, the slide currently being displayed on Screen 2 or the next slide to be displayed. The slide that is marked for editing is indicated by a red border around the slide thumbnail in the Presentation Panel. The slide that is currently being displayed on Screen 2 is indicated by a green border around the slide thumbnail in the Presentation Panel. The next slide to be displayed comes to the right of the current slide in the Presentation Panel.

Select a Slide to Edit (Second Screen Enabled)
When Screen 2 is enabled, editing a slide other than the one being displayed requires that you click with the right mouse button (or with single button Macintosh mice, hold the control key while clicking with the mouse) on the slide thumbnail in the Presentation Panel and select "Edit Slide" from the pop up contextual menu. Alternatively, you can also use the Slide Back and Slide Next buttons that are just below the Preview Panel to select the slide for editing.

Using the Presentation Mode (having the "Screen 2" tab selected in the Preview Panel) allows you to see the current slide that is being displayed on the second screen along with the slide that follows in the Presentation Panel. If you need to edit either of these slides during a presentation, just click on the preview and that slide will be pushed into the Slide Edit Panel. The changes will not be displayed until you have re-selected the currently displayed slide in the Presentation Panel.

Selecting a Slide to Edit (Second Screen Disabled)
If you have no second screen attached or it has been disabled, you can use your mouse to click on slides in the Presentation Panel to select them for editing (indicated by the red border around the slide thumbnail).

Slide Edit Canvas

At the bottom of the Slide Edit Panel, the Slide Edit Canvas is where you will enter, edit or highlight typed text on the slide being edited. If you have just created a slide, you can click with your mouse in this canvas and begin typing text. If you have a slide that already has text, just click inside the canvas to place your cursor and begin editing or typing. Highlight all or some text and use the controls above the canvas to adjust the font, style, color and size.

The slider control just above the Canvas can be used to adjust the background color of the Canvas, this will allow you to see lighter or darker fonts against the background of the Canvas.

Pulling the sliders on the right or left of the Canvas will allow you to quickly change the margins of the text on a slide. Just grab the slider at the right or left edge of the Canvas and drag. Perhaps you have a background image and you want the left or right side more visible, this will allow you to quickly and easily move text around on the slide.

Changing Font, Style, Color, or Alignment of Text

Similar to a word processor, you can either set your attributes before you type or highlight and change the attributes of existing text. The defaults for these attributes can be set in the Slide Preferences window.

Select the font type and size using the controls in the Slide Edit Panel. You can toggle Bold, Italics, or Underline styles by clicking on the buttons labeled B for Bold, I for Italics and U for Underline. A button for the style Shadow will help so that your text will stand out and not get lost over various colors in background images. The Shadow style will create a slight, dark edge (or shadow) behind the text. Use the Shadow Offset slider control (or click the button to enter a value) to change how close the shadow is to the text. Click on the color swatches to change the font color or the color of the text shadow.

Working with Slide Backgrounds

Slides have a background color which is determined by the "background" color swatch on the right hand side of the Slide Edit Panel. Once you have added a background image (see Building a Slide), you have some controls to adjust the image as it appears on the slide. If you want the same background (or color) to appear every time you create a new slide, set this in the Image panel of the preferences. In version 1.3+, you can also set a DVD cue or live video feed as the background of a slide by selecting the DVD or video feed buttons.

or adding a DVD cue or live video feed as the background to a slide.

If you have a background image on a slide, you can remove a background image (or a video clip) by clicking the "No Background" button. If you have added audio, you can remove the audio clip from a slide by clicking the "No Audio" button.

A drop down menu will give you three choices for how a background image is displayed on the slide.

Scale to Full Screen
The image is reduced or enlarged until either the image has fit into the screen either horizontally or vertically. Unless your image matches the same aspect ratio of the second screen resolution, you may see some of the background color behind your image.
Stretch to Fill Screen
The image is pulled horizontally and vertically to completely fill the screen without being able to see the background color of the slide. This may distort your image.
Custom Size
With this selection, you can change the size of the image using the slider control (or click on the Size button to enter in a value) and the pan control. This control's functionality was modified in version 1.3+. Clicking on the nine directional control, you can snap the image left, right, up, down, diagonally or center the image. If you right-click (or with single button Macintosh mice, hold the control key while clicking with the mouse) on a directional control, it will be nudged in that direction.

Apply to Group Button

After you have made changes to any of the attributes of a slide (font, size, color, style, alignment, background image position, slide delay, etc.) you can easily apply these changes to all slides in the same group by clicking on the "Apply to Group" button located just below the font and size controls. In version 1.2+, you can customize what attributes are applied to the other slides in the group by clicking with the right mouse button (or with single button Macintosh mice, hold the control key while clicking with the mouse) on the Apply to Group button. The settings that you use will be remembered the next time you use the Apply to Group button.

Slide Delay Control

The Slide Delay Speed at the top of the Slide Edit Panel will set how many seconds to display a slide on the second screen BETWEEN transitions, when you have engaged the automated play function. This setting only applies to the current slide being edited, but you can apply to all the slides in a group using the "apply to group" button.
