Re: re-enter license key

Once you've entered the license key, the following file is created on the Windows file system, and the file will contain the License Key along with other license metadata. %programdata%\PowerWorship\pW4\License\Pw.License normally this will be located at C:\ProgramData (C:\ProgramData\PowerWorship\p...

Re: pw4 initial settings for background and fonts settings

What happens when you click the Restore Defaults button and then confirm that you want to restore the defaults? Is it still Black on Black, or Black font on White background? Did it change to a White background after clicking restore defaults, and that's what you are showing in the 3rd screenshot?

Re: group unused songs into a folder

Although this is not currently supported-- it would be a great enhancement-- by supporting folder organization, and/or by supporting tagging of songs, etc.

Re: copy new songs to another computer

If exporting/importing becomes too cumbersome, pW 4.x makes it easy to transfer all of the program data from one machine to another given that it's all stored in a single database file (.sdf, sql server ce edition database) which can easily be transferred from one machine to another--without having ...

Re: pw4 and ppt 2016 import issue

I've so far been unable to reproduce the issue on several Windows 10 systems.
Good that the button still works-- but annoying that the text is missing or washed out.
Will post an update if I discover the root cause.

Thanks

Re: changing background on pw4

Enhancement request noted. Will try for the next update. A work around w/ the current version is to create 1 collection (of 1 or more songs) per background that you want to use. 2 or more sets of PPT slides can then be combined via copy/paste in PPT. For example open one of the PPT presentations and...

Re: error on export back button

Good feedback. For success, it makes sense to leave the Back button disabled-- like it is at that point (i.e. at the end of the export process), but if it fails because of the directory selection there should be more validation than there is and the export should not proceed to an invalid location (...

Re: Creating a new collection problem

Sounds good- thanks; it should be White background, black Font color. You can always try clicking the "restore defaults" button on your current machine (from the pW Settings dialog, near the bottom-left of the dialog/window) unless you don't want to restore all of the other style defaults [1]. That ...

Re: Creating a new collection problem

it appears that everything is done with the right click in pw4 now. It would appear to me if the collection is selected, when going to the "songs" tab, I should be able to double click another song and it will add it to the collection. right now, that is not the case. I have been reading the help f...

i see the "preparing slides for collection: jan 22 2017..." at the bottom of the window, but it doesn't appear to finish. If I go ahead and click create slides, then I get the error message about no collection selected. I guess I thought I knew how to do this. I see now. I have to "right click" the...

Re: pw 3.2 create slides with ppt 2016

Yeah, not supported with PPT 2016.

The PPT/MS Office interop libraries used with pW 3.2 (and prior versions) do not work with PPT 2016.

Re: pw4 and ppt 2016 import issue

There's no dependency on PowerPoint for that dialog/feature, and I have not observed that behavior on multiple installations of Windows 10. Curious issue though. Please comment if you see it elsewhere or if you get blocked by similar issues. Sounds like you are able to move past it in this case. It ...
