Custom set items
In addition to adding songs to your set, you can also add various custom items. To add these, click on the 'Add custom item to set' from the right hand 'Set' option menu.
Custom items that you can add include:
- Simple notes are useful as prompts about your set, reminders to do/say something, etc.
- Custom slides are often used by ministers to displays chunks of text, etc.
- Image slideshows are often used by projection teams to cycle through images during prayer times, before or after meetings, etc.
- Scripture slides are imported from BibleGateway. If you use the YouVersion BibleApp, you can share selected scripture verses directly with OpenSongApp. This creates a custom Scripture slide from the text received. You can also choose to use any XML bibles you have installed in the OpenSong/OpenSong Scripture/ folder. XML Bible formats include OpenSong versions or Zefania bible. Make sure to extract the bible from any zip file.
Custom slides/Image slideshows are not really meant for the Performance mode, however, they will be displayed. They are primarily designed for the Presentation mode.
The view changes slightly depending on the item that you are adding. Custom slides and image slideshows invite you to add new slides/images and you can also set a loop time for use during Presentation mode. Be aware that adding multiple images may cause your Android device to run out of memory in Performance or Stage Mode, as the app will load previews of all the images. Too many images = lots of memory being used!
If you want to be able to reuse custom slides (e.g. you may make a 'Set 1' and 'Set 2' custom note that gets used in all of your sets, you can save them as reusable custom slides. You can then load them up by clicking on the button.
