Version 5.5 > page-by-page transition
6/29/2006 9:44:36 AM
For some songs, I insert page breaks so that the projected font size
isn't too small. I then select the "page-by-page" option in the
song layout section. I usually use a "fade" transition of about 1 sec.,
which works OK between verses, but I get no fade transition between
pages. Is there some way to have the same transition between pages as
between verses? Thanks.

How are you moving from page 1 to page 2? Are you clicking in the program control panel or hitting the + key?
As I understand it, if you click, it won't use the transition, but if you +, it will fade.
But I haven't looked at this for a while.

I don't think you can mouse click, can you? Only the verse shows up
with the "green diamond," so I don't know what one would click on.
Anyhow, I use the plus key.

If you turn on the Program Control Panel (in the view menu), you will get a pane up at the top that has each verse and, to the right of that, pages within verse.
It will show up next to the Cue/Next/Current preview pane, if you have that on.

If you use the plus key or the BLUE next button you will get a transition.
If you click on the little black arrows, you wont get the transition..
You also need to check, in "Tools" then "Preferences" then "song transitions" and make sure that you have the option to use transitions when displayiong multipart Verses selected.

Eureka! Thanks for the help. I had not noticed that the transition
could be set in the Tools menu. Doing that did the trick. I see that
only the fade transition can be used when paging and I wonder why it
doesn't just follow whatever is set for the verse transition.
Obviously, this isn't a real worry -- I don't see myself using curl in
or other exotic transitions while the congregation (of mostly older
folks) is trying to follow the song words! Maybe that's why fade is the
only option other than no transition. Thanks again for the help -- this
is a great forum about a great program.
