Ableton Stopping ProPresenter

Is there a way to link the stop button on ableton live 9 to pro presenter's clear all button? For example, if I trigger a video to play in propresenter from ableton midi cues and then need to stop it for some reason, pressing stop on ableton will only stop whatever is playing within ableton and not propresenter. You would have to press stop in two different places to stop everything. Just fyi, we use custom video with embedded lyrics and tracks and used pro to control it for years. We now use ableton to control our lighting and would like to continue using pro for the video, but have run into the issue of not being able to stop the video if there is an issue or started the wrong song. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hey Mike,

I'm not sure on this exactly. Here is a video on how to automate your lyrics with Ableton Live and ProPresenter that shows how to link them:

If that doesn't help, you could ask this in our Facebook Group and see if anyone in our community knows if this is possible.

Derek, thanks for the response. I have seen the information on automating lyrics before. However, this solution won't work because of how we create our custom videos. We don't simply lay lyrics over the video. One would think there has to be a way to have an "all stop" button feature if you can fire everything from one button. I'll ask the fb group if I can find it. Thanks again
