Save (Presentation)
Clicking this button is a shortcut for pulling the File menu to Save
New Song
Clicking this button is a shortcut for pulling the File menu to New Song
Transition
This button is a drop down menu to set the global transition (or type of crossfade) when changing one slide to the next. When a second screen is enabled and when you select a slide in the Presentation Panel, this transition will occur as the selected slide appears on the second screen. If you hover your mouse over this button it will show a shortcut that indicates the current setting.
Speed (of Transition)
This button is a drop down menu to set the global speed of how quickly the transition takes place between slides on the second screen. This is how fast or slow the selected global transition will take between the two slides when you select a slide in the Presentation Panel. If you hover your mouse over this button it will show a shortcut that indicates the current setting. (Note: There is also a Slide Delay Speed below the Preview Panel that will determine how many seconds to display a slide on the second screen BETWEEN transitions, when you have engaged the automated play function).
View Group/View All
This button toggles between displaying in the Presentation Panel either all slides from all groups or only the currently selected group that is highlighted in the Slide Group Panel list.
Screen 2 Off/On
While a second screen (monitor or projector) is attached, pressing this toolbar button toggles whether or not LiveWorship is displaying (controlling) the second screen. If you have another presentation program, such as PowerPoint or Keynote, that is also presenting to the second screen this will allow you to transfer control back and forth between which program is displaying on the second screen.
Bail to Logo
When Screen 2 is enabled, pressing this toolbar button will toggle between displaying the current slide and the image that you have set in the Image Preferences as your Logo Slide. In versions 1.2+, the Bail buttons use the selected transition unless you click with the right mouse button (or with single button Macintosh mice, hold the control key while clicking with the mouse) which will change without a transition (cut).
Bail to Black
When Screen 2 is enabled, pressing this toolbar button will toggle between the current slide and displaying black to the second screen. This is useful if you need to get out of a presentation quickly. In versions 1.2+, the Bail buttons use the selected transition unless you click with the right mouse button (or with single button Macintosh mice, hold the control key while clicking with the mouse) which will change without a transition (cut).
Bail to Background
When Screen 2 is enabled, pressing this toolbar button toggles between displaying the current slide and the background image of the current slide (without any text). An example of when to use this would be when displaying the lyrics of a song (with a background image behind the lyrics on the slide group) and there is an interlude with instruments only. In versions 1.2+, the Bail buttons use the selected transition unless you click with the right mouse button (or with single button Macintosh mice, hold the control key while clicking with the mouse) which will change without a transition (cut).
Camera On/Off (only in versions 1.3)
When Screen 2 is enabled, pressing this toolbar button toggles between displaying the selected external video feed as the background on all slides. An external video feed can also be attached as a background to an individual slide using the Slide Edit Panel.
Loop (only in versions 1.2+)
When Screen 2 is enabled, pressing this toolbar button will begin playing the currently selected group. If you click with your right mouse button (or with single button Macintosh mice, hold the control key while clicking with the mouse) on the Loop button the entire presentation will be played. The loop will continue until either the Stop button in the Toolbar is pressed or a slide in the Presentation Panel is selected to be displayed. Slides will change from one to another based upon the selected transition (and transition speed) and will pause on each slide for the duration of time set in the Slide Delay control below the Preview Panel. An example of when this would be useful might be automatically playing a presentation of slides containing announcements before a service. (Related: Looping a video clip)
Play (automated) (In versions 1.2+, the Play button has been removed)
When Screen 2 is enabled, pressing this toolbar button will begin an automated slide play feature which will display one slide after another on the second screen. In versions 1.0 and 1.1, this will begin with the FIRST slide in your presentation regardless of which group is selected. Slides will change from one to another based upon the selected transition (and transition speed) and will pause on each slide for the duration of time set in the Slide Delay control below the Preview Panel. Pressing this toolbar button while the automated slide play feature is active will stop and begin playing from the initial slide. (Note: You can also envoke this feature for only one group of slides by clicking with the right mouse button (or with single button Macintosh mice, hold the control key while clicking with the mouse) on the title of the slide group in the Slide Group Panel). An example of when this would be useful might be automatically playing a presentation of slides containing announcements before a service. To stop the automated Play, press the Stop toolbar button.
Stop
When Screen 2 is enabled with the automated Play feature active (or a video or audio clip is playing), pressing this toolbar button will stop the automated displaying of slides to the second screen and pause on the current slide.
Alert On/Off
When Screen 2 is enabled, pressing this toolbar toggles the display of an alert message on Screen 2. This is useful for sending a message to someone who might be watching without disrupting the presentation, such as for nursery calls or to alert someone about a car with lights left on, etc. The location and font can be adjusted in the Alert Preferences. When you select this toolbar button, you will be prompted for the text of the alert. See Show Alert page for more information.
Help
This button will open the LiveWorship Help files in your Web Browser.
