Many of the ScreenScape playlist layouts include a news widget. You can assign a specific Reuters news source by adjusting the News settings:

STEP 1: Select the screen icon  in the top right of the ScreenScape application. This will take you to the Hardware page.

STEP 2: Double-click on the hardware in question to access the settings, or alternatively, click the hardware once, and select the edit option in the top right of the application.

STEP 3: On the top-right side of the page, select the Properties tab, then click the News drop down tab.

STEP 4: First, you will need to select a Reuters news source from the drop down options available. Then, enter how many seconds you would like each news slide to appear on your screen in the News Slide Duration Box. Make sure to click on Save when you are done.
