Pixel Processing;
This option will now only allow bit color depths to be selected that are equal or less than the actual color depth of the current OS color display mode. Pixel Processing changes should only be used when the speed of scrolling must be tuned to the current OS color display mode.
This options alters the color depth of the 
internal graphics scrolling engine.
The [X] [Reload Loop Text] option is used to
reload the text script when looping. If this
option is used, the text script file will be
Cleared and then reloaded from it original 
disk location before beginning the next scroll loop. This should be used when the text is going to be changing by another process. It is assumed that the file will be re-copied to the original disk location using the same script name. 
The Read time configurations options 
are changed as follows. The [Words Per
Minute][Configure] option will automatically
set the options to attain the desired words per
minute reading time of the current script.
To use this option enter or change the Words
Per Minute to the desired rate and click
[Configure]. The [Total Read Time][Configure] will set the  speed and other settings to run the script  within the desired amount of time in seconds. Example: If the script must be read in 2 minutes (120 seconds), enter "120" into the [Total Read Time] and click [Configure]. The actual read time may vary by a small amount. 
The [X] [Over Ride Sizing] Option
The option is used to control the scroll box
sizing when using the reverse scroll function.
When this option is checked, the scroll box
size will be the actual size selected in the [Window Size] option. When using this mode there may be partial lines scrolled when going into reverse scroll.

If the  [ ] Over Ride Sizing is NOT checked then auto sizing will be applied to the scrolling box to prevent partial lines from being viewed when using reverse scroll.
This option can be used to adjust the blank
space between lines when scrolling text.

The "0" position on the Vertical spacing
slider is meant to be used when your 
text is in all caps.  Using this setting
(set to "0") will cut off descending characters
in text that is not capitalized. To prevent the
cutoff, adjust the Vertical spacing to about 10.
Use the [Save Configuration] option to save
You’re vertical spacing settings.
To use a Matrox DualHead G450 etc, you
must download the "Matrox" version of the 
handctrl.dll from
After downloading the dll file, copy it to your
existing StudioPrompter folder (overwrite your
existing handctrl.dll file). Then restart 
StudioPrompter and use the new option on
the Play Options Panel named [Use DualHead].
This will divert all play screen display operations to the second half of the DualHead screen while leaving the Operator Console screen operating (speed adjust etc.). If you are not in the Dual Head display mode (set in the windows/matrox display mode settings) The primary screen will be divided in two when scrolling. This may not be your desired mode and should not be used.
When using a Dual Monitor setup you will have an additional option panel named [Monitor]. This panel will display a scrolling text box showing the text that is being scrolled on the Talent monitor. To change the font size, color, etc of the Operator Monitor Display, right click on the Monitor panel.
