An alert is an easy way to display a string of text over the top of whatever is currently on your display screen. To set an alert, a cue list must be open. Then click the Alert icon in the command toolbar.
The alert modal will appear. Set the alert message in the Text field. You can then drag the alert to the position you would like it to appear on your display screen, font, font size and color. Then click "Show Alert".
The alert will remain on the display screen until you click "Hide Alert".
