Setting up your song list in a clean and organized fashion makes it easy to
move around without sending the wrong things to the screen. During the service
there is not a lot of time to react if things do not go as you expected.

Below is a list of instructions on how to insert a song into your song
list. The slides will be inserted under the slide you have highlighted.
Highlight the top slide to have the song inserted just under the welcome
screen. We do not use a blank slide after the title as this allows us to move
right from the welcome screen into the worship. Blank slides are a series of
dashes "-------" that we use to create spaces between the songs.
STEP 1. Under the drop down menus click on Insert, and then choose the
"Slides from files...." option.
STEP 2. In the popup window choose the Browse button.
STEP 3. Under the look in drop down list locate the directory where
your songs are located, then choose a song you wish to insert, and click
STEP 4. Click on the insert all button, and then click on the close
Once the slides have been inserted they can easily be moved around in
the slide layout view. To move a single slide drag it to a new location. To
move a group of slides or an entire song click on the first slide then hold
down the shift key and click on the bottom slide.
Always keep a blank slide at the bottom of the list. If you accidentally
enter a number using the keyboard that is higher than the slide numbers in
your presentation you will be moved to the last slide in the list. If this is blank
slide, you wont be sending the wrong song to the screen. The blank slide at
the end also allows you to arrow down when the last song is over.
You will need to copy the HalvettBlackCond font
into your windows font directory. All the downloadable songs have been formatted
using this font. The font is the same type as Arial only bolder and more
condensed. It works excellent as a projected font as it is more readable. The
file needs to be copied to your WINDOWS\FONTS directory.
