The F11 and F12 keys do not change the scroll speed?

The F11 and F12 key are very fine adjustments (we found that courser adjustments made it hard to get the saved scroll speed close). To get the speed close to right quickly you can hold these keys down.
Note that if you wait between key-presses of these keys the adjustment is finer, quick key-presses has a greater change.

If I am registered and upgrade my computer do I need to re-register?

Yes, but this is free, just email ([email protected]) us with a note saying that you have upgraded your computer and you new ComputerID and we will send out the new registration information.

I got a "List out of bounds" error when starting ShowNak - what do I do?

The latest version fixes this, just download the upgrade and install it.

Can I use OpenOffice Impress to convert a PowerPoint(r) presentation

Generally yes, use File-Export and export to a HTML presentation, the image files created can then be displayed via ShowNak

I can't change the displayed font - there is no option for this ... why?

The ShowNak configuration file, ShowNak.snc, has probably been set as read-only (copying off a CDR can do this). This file is in the ShowNak directory, there you can right-click a nd select Properties to check/change the Read-Only checkbox.

This is a feature of ShowNak - once you have the setting as you want them setting Read-Only prevents many changes and no changes become permanent.

Can I use GIF images?

From version 2006 V4.0.0 onwards GIF images can be displayed.

If you are making a presentation for use with an older version of ShowNak make sure that you use only BMP or JPG files (or upgrade to the latest version of ShowNak).

How can I transfer ShowNak to a new computer?

Firstly, install ShowNak

Copy the required folders from the old ShowNak directory (on later versions of Windows when running as a non-administrator there is often a second ShowNak program folder, C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\ShowNak or C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\ShowNak to copy from also) to the same location on the new computer. The most often required folders are Songs and Images.

Next to keep the same settings copy the ShowNak.snc (configuration file) over as well.

Finally you may need to unregister ShowNak on the old computer and register it on the new one.
