– Using boxes puts a distinctive twist on traditional slide layout
– Using boxes with your lyrics helps separate the words from the background
– Using boxes makes it easier to focus on the words
There are several ways to make this happen, so we asked the Projection Team if they would mind sharing some insights on their setup and how they make it happen. If you’re a ProPresenter user, we’ve provided a step-by-step process on how to set it up.
Step1: Song Selection
Open ProPresenter and select a song.
Step2: Open Editor
On the top bar select the Editor tool
Once in Editor select one of the slides on the left hand tool bar to edit.
Step4: Text Selection
Once the slide is collected click on the text and Highlight all the text in the box.
Mac users: Hover over the text and Hold control and right click.
Windows users: Hover over the text and Right click.
Once you have Right clicked the highlighted text Navigate to Transformations and select the ‘Make Upper Case’ option.
Once complete, repeat the same steps on the other slides.
Step1: Song Selection
In the search bar right click on the song and navigate to Reflow Presentation.
Step2: Two Lines
At first all of the slides will be four lines, by Clicking on the end of the second line and selecting Insert Slide Break on the bottom left of the window you can break the slides lines into two halves.
Step3: Highlight Song
In the Reflow Presentation highlight one slide at a time.
Right click on the Highlighted text and navigate to Transformations and Make Upper Case.
Section Two: Box Text
To create a box text to apply to all slides it is best to create a Box Text Template
Step1: Creating a Template
On the top right section of the tool bar select the Template drop down and select New Template.
Select a name. Click Save.

Once in Template Editor add text to the slide. Doe this be clicking on the text symbol on the top left hand side of the slide.

Once you have created a text box double click the box and insert text.
Then click out of the box and then click it once more, this should look like the example bellow.

This should open a new window to allow you to select the colour of the box.
(Default is black)

Once the box is added to the page click and hold the box then move the box to the centre of the page. This should look like the example below.
