I have set everything up but can’t load files into the app. I am using Microsoft Word (.doc or .docx files) and/or Adobe Acrobat Reader (.pdf files) but all files are greyed out in the app. Tried desktop, documents, Dropbox and all are the same.
I have managed to copy and paste on the teleprompter screen, but I don’t want to have to do that with all scripts.
Answer from TeleprompterPAD
As indicated in the open file message (after pressing the folder icon from the top menu), the TeleprompterPAD app accepts plain text files in .txt format with UTF-8 encoding, therefore only files with a .txt extension will be selectable to open in the app.
You can save or convert to .txt format from any text software, such as Microsoft Word or Pages or you can use a fee online service.

However, reading a file is not mandatory, you can use the alternative copy-paste method which in most cases is faster and easier.
