Hi,

I wrote a little script to give me bible verses in english and german like this:
Quote:
[1] In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. [2] Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

[1] Im Anfang schuf Gott den Himmel und die Erde. [2] Und die Erde war wüst und leer, und Finsternis war über der Tiefe; und der Geist Gottes schwebte über dem Wasser.

Genesis 1:1-2

For this I use a javascript bookmark in Chrome. My goal is to add each bible verse group as a title preset. We add all bible verses in the beginning and switch to each verse during the sermon, like this:
Example

So I checked the API and I was able to select, next or previous title preset. But I did not find an option to add a value as preset. Is there a way to add values as title presets?

For example:
Quote:
http://127.0.0.1:8088/api/?Function=AddTitlePreset&Input=Text_Main_Verse&Value=MyBibleVerse

Any chance this getting implemented in future versions?
Or any other workaround?
I don't want to import/export csv files because you cannot write to files using javascript. So using the API would be ideal!

If you really want to be able to select a "preset" you will have to go to data sources, meanig , you wil have a to find a way to write to a file first .
It will make your live so much easier
Why not export your presets to a csv file ?

As I said, I use a javascript bookmark to extract both german and english translation from a website and copy it to the clipboard. Then I go to vMix and paste the content to the slide. Instead of writing to the clipboard I want to insert the content via the api. Since I use javascript within a browser there is no way to write to a file.

Use an app or some script to save/add the clipboard content to a csv file (autohotkey for example) and your data source will update with each addition ( or you can import it into your presets)

Is easier to select with a variable (data source row ) the row you want

As doggy proposes, I think the easiest approach is to create a .txt or .csv file with the content from the verse and load it as data source. The other solution is overly complicated.
