    Hi,

    We are keen to use OpenSong at our Church.  Our plan to use a Toshiba laptop and a projector.

    Pleased to report that it was quite easy to get the system up and running.

    But, most likely due to the old/tired laptop, we can not adjust the output resolution of the video going to the projector.  Thus, the sides/top/bottom are getting trimmed off.

    Is there a way to set the program to restrict its display to (say) 80% of the apparently available presentation screen area?  If not, is it possible to set margins when entering/editing a song?

    Thanks,

    Geoff.

      Do you mean this sentences to be in the present tense? I think there isn't any way to do this in OpenSong.

      About changingsong - we haven't created any program yet. We are just planning what to do.
      Therefore we couldn't use the phrase "is there a way to set the program" - there is not yet any program :)

      But your question is a good point as new feature request.

      thanks for it.

      Hi,

      Not sure how my message ended up on this forum (as I thought I was posting to the main opensong forum) but glad that it did!

      I reckon that it should be possible to "use" the default CSS file to influence the formatting of the presentation screen, not just the non-presentation screens (ie: song and set mode dialogs).

      If this is not possible, perhaps some extra configurable settings for the routine that interprets the XML song/set files, to would allow some additional formatting of the presentation screen?

      By the way, I have found that, if an "unbreaking space" is copied from a word processor and pasted into the song edit dialog, an actual space can be gained, thus "indenting" (albeit by only one space) continuation lines.

      Geoff.
