Proclaim recently got a major update. Here’s a rundown of what’s new.
A whole new look
We’ve eliminated gradients and reflections, embracing the new wave of flat design. In addition to its modern appearance, this aesthetic improves performance, as there are fewer graphic elements to move around.
Proclaim’s new look makes more efficient use of space, expanding the timeline to use the full width of the application window.
Speed, stability & continuity
We’ve updated some of the underlying technology that will make everything faster, more stable, and more consistent across platforms. Slides now render identically on both Mac and Windows.
On-Screen Bible quick screen
This is my favorite change in the update.
We’ve long included three quick screens to help you deal with the unexpected. In a single click, you can clear all text on the screens, switch to your church’s logo, or blank the screens completely. We retired the “no text” option, since few were using it, and we’ve added a new quick screen option—On-Screen Bible.
Select it, type a reference, and in an instant you’ll have an animated display of that passage. This is perfect for moments when the worship leader or pastor improvise their way into an unexpected passage, you can quickly get it up on the screens.
It might not be something you’ll use every week, but when things don’t go as planned this feature will make it look like they did.
Smart Media is one of the ways that Proclaim saves you a lot of time. But now, if you edit a slide using the customization window—to match an uploaded background image, perhaps—your changes will be preserved even if you change backgrounds. So if you choose to customize your slides, you’ll only have to do it once.
We’ve added an option to your right-click menu for removing songs from your “My Songs” list. Use this to cut down on clutter from songs you don’t ever plan to use, and duplicate entries of your favorites.
All the Bible tools are now language aware, so if you’re using the Spanish RVR, for example, you can now enter “Juan 3:16,” and the Scripture will parse correctly and display as “Juan 3:16.” This is an important first step for us in making Proclaim available to the global church.
