    Crawling text (star war like) --> just partial list appeared (Office 365)

    I would like to have a list of members to be appreciated under a ppt slide (just like star war), the issue I have is only 80% shown.
    I have adjusted the duration time and the font size with no change. My download from the web that I have to make paragraph in the textbox, is it a must !?

    Please help and if you could provide download example.

    Paul,

    Thanks for the reference and example.
    Your sample is relatively short to me since I have seventy lines (transferred from Notepad) to show on the slide to "crawl". If I used the same font (from attachment) I only got partial list and if I used font size (10) then I could
    see the whole list. (I have changed to Timing --Duration 60 seconds or any recommended alteration based on your experience?)
    Therefore how I could use eg font size (40) as given by you I will still get say 100 lines of my original intention.
    Are we Star Wars fanssssssssssssss ?!?!?
    Please post it in the same galaxy....

    Credits is buggy. If you have text much more than a slide's height off slide it may freeze.

    Try moving the text box to show the final position (ie off the top of the slide) and use a very slow fly In .

    John,

    Thanks for the suggestion.
    If you do not mind how SLOWwwwwwwwwwwwwwwest I could set and where !? (Office 365)
    Do the followings help:
    1. Red arrow (top) moves beyond slide
    2. Green arrow (bottom) moves to cover bottom text
    3. Top text box move to match bottom of slide (same width)
    4...

    Thank you Master. Salute ..

    Open the Animation Pane and use the drop arrow to choose Timing.

    Extremely slow is 20 secs but if you want slower just change the '20' manually to whatever.
