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?

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.
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.
