I am using the RiseVision text scroll app. When previewing the text scrolls really fast. Is there a way to control the speed.

Hi Rick,

Instead of the text scroll gadget, try out the Text Widget. It allows for control over the scroll speed.

Place holder is larger by lots. I tried deleting place holder and adding again but same results.
Tried changing font as well

Rick,

The placeholder should actually be smaller than the text that it contains. On a second review of this widget, it may not accomplish what you want to do. The text widget scroll direction appears to only scroll up. I think at this point the only way you could accomplish what you want to do would be to come up with a text crawl html code and use it in our html widget.

Thanks Blake, I did try a smaller box for text and it just pushed the text down a line.

Rick,

The text scroller will not be changed to include a speed level. It's possible that the text item could include a horizontal scroll feature in the future, but it's not something that is planned currently.
