Slideshow module question

Jan 19, 2013 11:48 AM

The ABC button lights up when I mouse over it but does not activate the text box. Windows 7 LR4.3 Any thoughts? Thanks

    Click on the ABC button in the toolbar while in Slideshow module. This should open a white text entry box right of it, in the toolbar.

    By default it is labeled as "custom text", but can be switched to display metadata, e.g. "caption" or "title" - far more useful for a slideshow, because you can re-use the metadata you have entered in Library module, specific for each image.

    Then a new textbox is placed on the slideshow window and can be adjusted for size and location.

    But you do a right-click on ABC, not just hovering over it?

     

    Then I cannot reproduce on my system. Anybody else?

    The text overlays box in the right-hand panel looks the same for me: I can just tick or untick it.

    Still the rest works as expected, so no clue what may be different at yours, either.
