Sending Messages

When you select a message from the list of options, the Song Viewer will flash with a colored overlay and text. The message stays on the screen long enough to read the message. Messages with more words stay on the screen for a longer period of time. This same behavior will occur on screens connected with Stage Monitor Mode or OnSong Connect.

Since accessing this menu and tapping on a message can require dexterity you don't have while playing an instrument, you can also map Hot Corners, Navigation Zones, and Foot Pedals to send the message as well.

Words will appear for approximately a third of a second per word, plus the time to animate the flashed message on and off the screen. You can adjust the amount of time messages appear by going into the Utilities Menu Settings Display Settings Song Viewer Flash Message.
