PowerPoint and the Stage Display*(TS291)
Applicable SongShow Plus Versions:
This article applies to SongShow Plus Version 8.4 and later.
The SongShow Plus Stage Display does not show any content when displaying a PowerPoint slide show.
It is currently unknown what is causing this but it seems to occur with PPT version 2016 and later in Windows 8.1 and Windows 10.
At this time there is no viable work-around or setting within PowerPoint to correct this. The user can convert PPT slides in the Slide Builder or create/duplicate the content in Slide Builder.
Install PowerPoint 2013. The last check on this confirmed that the Stage Display in SongShow Plus 8.4 does work as expected with Windows 10 build 1803 and the recommended settings.
