I finally downloaded Siglos Professional and started playing around with everything. I got the database loaded without any issues at all. Every single song loaded perfectly as far as I can tell. I customized the singer screen easlily. I have figured out how to search songs and add singers to the rotation. So, so far, so good,,,,, however....

How (or is it even possible?) to customize the "up next" singer ticker? I would like to only have it show the next 3 or 4 singers (that part I figured out), but I only want it run the ticker up to 3 times and disappear... Is this possible?

I am sure I will have more questions later on, but this is where I will start.

There's a setting that supposedly stops it from running multiple times but couldn't get that to even work on a different laptop than what I use for my shows. I don't use Siglos anymore. I use OpenKJ now. It has saved my bacon a number of times including last night's show. Was trying out VirtualDJ but it wouldn't list all of my songs.
Although since the scroller doesn't interfere with the graphics, I really don't see the need to limit the number of times it appears. Maybe the number of singers listed but not the amount of times it scrolls across the screen. That is the one thing that I hated about JustKaraoke's scroller, that it was limited to just 5 times.

My reason is this. I believe that having the next singers scrolling across the screen is kind of distracting to the singer. It's not a deal breaker at all, but it would be nice to limit the amount of times scrolling by to the time that it takes to get the next singer to the stage, or at least limit it to the intro at the beginning of the song. Other than that, I think Siglos is going to be a quite efficient program.

There's no way to set the scrolling message to scroll for x amount of times then stop. You'll have to untick the scrolling message setting when you want it to stop.
