I want to create a list of 30 names using the credits animation on one
slide, but the slide stops after 15 seconds and all the names don't
appear. Looking for advice. Thanks.

Have you set the credits to "exit" yet? Simply have each
text you've animated exit using the same animation
technique with a "0" timing delay.

I've done this in a similar presenation...
animation on one
names don't

Hey Steve,

The Credits effect will only show about 1 screen's worth of names. If the
text within the textbox exceeds this limit, then it will not be shown. To
fix this, break the list into several textboxes and animate them
sequentially.

Post back if this does not solve the problem.

I tried both of the suggestions and still not getting the look of 30
names scrolling up as if they are on one slide. With Sandy's
suggestion I got a short list of names scrolling up and then scrolling
down before the next list of names. Will Bill's suggestion I couldn't
get all of the names to work on one slide. The first list of names
scroll up until the last name. This leaves a gap between the last name
and the next slide until the next slide advances and the second list
of names scrolls up. I know this sounds confusing because I'm
confused. I'll keep trying, but any additional help would be
appreciated.

I think you misunderstood my suggestion.

On the credits slide, select your textbox that will scroll. Copy it and
paste it on top of the original. Alter the animation to start 'With
Previous' and change the 'Delay' from 0 to 80-90% of the animation speed.
This will cause the second box to begin to animate a little before the end
of the first. You will want to tweak the timing to get it to look right.

To change the text inside the second textbox, it may be easier to move it to
the side until done editing it.
