I have a text box with a long list of bullet points which I want to scroll
up the screen as i talk. I have added the Credit animation to it but it
stops before it reaches the end, no matter how long I ask it to 'run' for
(speed in sconds). How can i get the darn thing to keep scrolling to the end
of the box?

Cheers

Hi Terry,

Move your text box bottom off the top of the slide.

Terry,

how long is your list? I once tried to do that with a very long list and
found out that there is a limit of about 38 cm. To see the full list, place
its bottom at the bottom of your slide, assign an Entrance animation
"Appear" to it and have the Credits animation start immediately after that.

If your list is longer, split it into parts of approximately 18 cm and
combine them. The timeline is a great help doing this.

Kind regards,
Ute

Thanks Ute. I have 50 lines of 20-point MS Trebuchet text. It would appear
that my list is not too long. It works fine using the Crawl Entrance method
illustrated by glenna's link (above).

That's great Glenna. I'm not going to investigate why Crawl worked and
Credits didn't. I'm just happy to have found a resolution. Thanks a lot.

How do I use credit animation in Outlook with hundreds of names?

There are no animations available in Outlook. If you want to use a credit
style animation for a long list in PowerPoint, use the "Crawl in" animation
instead, it works for longer lists. If necessary, split your list into two
or more text boxed.

Kind regards,
Ute
