ProPresenter 6 has a lot of new features. So many that sometimes I forget what I’ve covered and what I haven’t. That’s what happened with this one. I feel like I touched on it, but know that I didn’t go as in-depth as I should, so that’s what this is all about.

[tweet “Headers is a new feature in Pro6. Here’s how and why to use it: “]

Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to organize portions of the service in propresenter, so that you can quickly see where worship starts, where you have a video, etc., like you can with verses in a song?

That’s what the new headers feature is for.

When you’re using headers, you first need to add a new one. This is done just like with a song or a playlist. You click on the plus sign to the lower left of the playlist. Then choose “Add header.”

From there, you can click twice to highlight the name of the header and call it what you want.

Next drag it to where you’d like it in the playlist and you’re done.

For more visibility, right click on the header and change the color or click on the header in the playlist and then click the gear icon in the normal slides area. From there, you can also add a timer.

Finally, I recommend clicking on the “Contiguous” button above the playlist as this makes the header field smaller in the slides area and makes navigation more intuitive.

Keep in mind, that when you’re navigating through the playlist by hitting the spacebar or arrow keys, a header behaves like a new song (but without slides), so you have to hit the spacebar an extra time.

This might take some getting used to, so keep that in mind.
