    Repeated horizontal scrolling text on slide (2003

    I would like to create text that scrolls horizontally across the bottom of the slide. (The slide already contains other, stationary, text.)

    A message (such as "Please silence cell phones and pagers") would scroll across the bottom over and over as the audience files in, stopping only when I advance to the next slide.

    Is this possible? How is it done?

    Thanks in advance,
    Erik

    Select the text box.
    Select Tools | Custom Animation.
    Select
    Add Effect > Exit > Fly Out.
    Specify "Start after previous' as Start, 'To the right' as Direction and 'Very Slow' as speed.
    Click the dropdown arrow or right-click the effect.
    Select Timing from the menu.
    Set Repeat to 'Until end of slide'.
    Click OK.
    Now move the text box to just to the left of the slide.
    Test the slide show.

    Clever!

    And it works, except for one thing: the so-called "very slow" setting is much too fast. Is there a way to slow it down further?

    Thanks,
    Erik

    You can type a number in the Speed box in the Timing tab of the Effect options dialog. Try 7 or 10 or so (unit is seconds).

    I settled on 35 seconds (told you I wanted slow!). Anyway, it worked great. Many thanks.
