Print Friendly and PDF

Proclaim provides different options to apply a single text style to your service items.

1. Select Multiple Items

First, select your desire service items or text boxes/fields.

Multiple Service Items

Press and hold Ctrl (Windows) or Cmd (macOS) while you individually select service items (or hold Shift to select adjacent items). All selected items must be the same kind of service item (e.g. all Song items).

Smart Media

Another way to apply a single text style to your service items is by applying a Smart Media template.

Click Media and select Browse Media.

Note: You can also open the Media Browser by selecting Browse Media from the Background drop-down menu.

In the Media Browser, select the template you want to apply. Proclaim applies the background and text styling to all your selected service items.

Note: When you apply a media item as Smart Media, Proclaim formats existing text boxes and fields to correspond to the text boxes and fields in the Smart Media. If your existing service item has additional text boxes or fields that are not in the Smart Media item, the text boxes or fields in your service item are eliminated.
