Scoreboard Documents are the layouts for the scoreboard. In most cases you will select Edit Scoreboards. You would only need to use Select Documents if you have been sent a scoreboard layout from someone that you want to load into the software.

Click on Edit Scoreboards to open the Editor to adjust an existing layout or create a new layout. You will see this when you open the Editor.

The left column will show you a thumbnail of every layout you have available. You can click the plus button at the bottom of this column to add a new blank layout. You can also use Command + C and Command + V to copy/paste an existing layout that you want to adjust.

The middle section is your workspace. This is where you can select, move, arrange, and add/delete elements from your scoreboard layout. The tools across the top allow you to add additional objects to the layout: Text, Shape, Draw Shape, Image, Video, Live Video, Web Page, and Text Ticker. Clicking on the Ruler will show/hide the ruler. The last two buttons are Move Forward and Move Backwards for the selected object relative to other objects on the slide.

The column on the right has five sections: Document Properties, Slide Properties, Slide Builds, Object Properties, Text Properties, and Image/Video Properties.

Before you begin modifying or create a layout, click on the Document Properties tab. You will need to update the Document’s size to match your output setting. If the size doesn’t match, you will see a yellow alert triangle, like the one shown below. Click the alert to quickly update the document size. If you are creating a layout to use on another computer, be sure to use the Custom Size option to set the document to the correct size for that display.

You will mainly be working with the Object Properties and Text Properties. Object Properties is where you will link the slide objects to the scoreboard data, using the Data Link option.

Each sport has a unique set of Data Link options. The image above is from Basketball. As you can see, there are options for all of the same properties that exist on the scoreboard. Some Data Link values are team specific. These are indicated by ‘teamOne’ or ‘T1’ depending on the sport.

As you are creating a new layout, select the object on the slide and then link it to one of the Data Link options. Make sure that anything that is not a dynamic value is set to None in the list so that it doesn’t display something it shouldn’t.

Team One is always the first team shown on the scoreboard control screen, regardless of if you have the team set as Home or Away. In baseball this is the top team, in all other sports, it is the team on the left of the scoreboard. Team Two is the second team.

Object Properties has other standard layout settings as well, such as size and position, fill and outline colors, and shadow properties.

The Text Properties tab uses standard text control tools. Select text boxes to change the font settings for those boxes. Multiple text boxes can be changed simultaneously.
