The Stage Display feature of ProPresenter is essentially a confidence monitor that allows the people on stage to see information such as the Current Slide, the Next Slide, notes, clocks, timers, and other information. This is view is different from that of the output that your audience is seeing.
The first step in using the Stage Display is to set up your computer to use your device as an external monitor. This would entail plugging in the physical device that you want to use as your Stage Display directly into your computer. If you have a computer with extra video outputs then you can plug into those ports on the computer, however, many users will need to use an adapter to come out of the computer, such as a Mini-Display Port adapter (also called "Thunderbolt") or a USB video adapter. Note that if you are using a USB video adapter then you will also need to install drivers which you can download from the manufacturer's website. If you have purchased the USB from Renewed Vision, you can download the driver here.
Once the computer recognizes the device as an external monitor, you can open ProPresenter and set up your Stage Display. First, you will need to tell ProPresenter which external monitor you want to use as your Stage Display. In the top left, click on ProPresenter, then click on Preferences. Click on the Display tab to adjust the output settings.
In the center of the Display tab, you will want to click and drag the purple "SD" box to the box that represents your Stage Display while leaving the black "Output" box in the space that represents your audience screen.
After you have assigned your Stage Display to the correct output, click the Enable Stage Display button to turn on the Stage Display.
You can now click on Configure Stage Display to access full control of how your Stage Display appears. This window allows you to customize your Stage Display with as many or as few of the features of Stage Display as you would like. You can also set up multiple Layouts which allows you to have different "looks" to the Stage Display for different parts of your service.
Clicking on the gear icon on the top right will open the Stage Display Editor. The top section of the Editor allows you to select and edit your Layouts. A Layout is one grouping of features of the Stage Display. For example, you could have one Layout for worship and a different Layout for your sermon notes. Or maybe you have two speakers, and they each want different information on the Stage Display.
You can create new Layouts by clicking the "+" button in the top right. Click on the button below the "+" to duplicate the currently selected Layout as a new Layout. Select a Layout and press the Backspace or Delete key to delete a Layout.
Below the Layout section, it lists all of the available features of the Stage Display. Click the checkbox next to a given feature to turn it on or off for the currently selected Layout. Many of the features also have available options that you can adjust in this area.
In the main Configure Stage Display window, you will see all of the features that have been enabled in the Edit tab. To change their location on the Stage Display you can click and drag them to a different location. You can also adjust the size of each element by hovering your mouse over the edge of an element and clicking and dragging.
