I am using the slide view for movies and I was wondering if it was possible to display the outline for a movie in the window that pops up after a couple seconds rather then the plot?

A lot of the time the plot is way too long to read and spoils the movie if you haven't seen it. I know there is a way to hide the plot if the movie is marked as unwatched but I would still like a quick summary of what the movie is about for when people are over and ask "what is this movie about?".

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

in View_Slide.xml, change ListItem.Plot to ListItem.PlotOutline

Sorry for the bump. This method used to work fine until I think Frodo/T! v5 when the View-Slide script was changed. Does anyone know what reference xml we'd have to edit now to make plot outline show up in slide view?

Thanks

at the bottom of View-Slide.xml, change:
<label>$VAR[ViewSlideLabel2]</label>
to:
<label>$INFO[ListItem.PlotOutline]</label>
