Cues and Cue Lists

Turning Auto Fire on/off

Auto Fire is a default setting on Presenter that immediately launches (or "fires") the first slide of a cue to the output screens when the cue is selected from the left cue list. This feature makes for quick, uninterrupted transitions from one cue to the next during your live service. In the example image below, clicking on "I Surrender All" from the left cue list triggers the first slide of that song to "auto-fire" to the Display Screen. The user does not need to click the Verse 1 slide to begin projecting.

Note that cues can still be edited even when Auto Fire is on - from the cue list, click on the pencil icon that pops up to the right of the cue name when the cursor hovers over the cue, or right-click on the cue and click Edit.

By default, Auto Fire is turned on in Presenter. However, some users prefer to have more manual control over what goes up on the screen and/or when it goes up on the screen. In other cases, users may want to view other cues without firing those cues to the screen.

When Auto Fire is turned off, a cue will only launch to the screens when you open the cue and manually click on a slide within that cue. Referring back to the image above, the user would have to open the cue from the left, then manually click on the Verse 1 slide (or any slide in that cue) to fire it to the screen.

To turn Auto Fire on/off, click on the  ⚙ gear icon in the top right corner and select Settings. Under Cue Defaults, you'll see the Auto Fire option. Make sure to scroll down to the bottom and click the Save button after you make changes.
