Cue Lists and Cues

Intro to Cue Lists and Cues

In Presenter, two of the main features that you will work with are cues and cue lists.

A cue refers to each program item for a particular service. A cue can be a single media item, such as an image, video, or motion graphic, or it can be a set of slides, such as a set of song lyrics, sermon slides, announcement slides, and/or Scripture excerpts.

The cue list, then, is your service "setlist." It's an ordered list of each cue that you have prepared for projection during the service, so you'll want to create a new cue list for each service. If you need to reference past cue lists, select Cue Lists from the top menu on Presenter.

The cue list is found on the very left pane of Presenter. In the example image above, the cue list has 6 cues in it. When you select a cue from the cue list, in this case, "Amazing Grace," you'll see the full slide set for that cue on the right. The green box around the "Verse 1a" slide indicates that that slide is currently selected and being displayed to the audience. You can also reference the preview pane in the very bottom left corner, under the cue list, to see what's being projected to the audience..

Cue lists are equivalent to services in Planning and setlists in Music Stand. Data will sync across all three apps. To learn more about how editing a service in Planning translates into Presenter, please check out this article: Service Order
