Default Scrolling banner...

Hope someone might be able to help a long in the tooth type like me who's not used Powerpoint in a while.

Setting up a page for final use on a TV screen in our factory. I want a banner with text moving along the bottom from right to left. Know how to do that, but what I want to eliminate a lag before it scrolls round again.

I though initially, if I repeat the sentence, but of course if you do that say three times, there is still a lag when the third one has passed by.

Wonder if any ideas on tweaks in the settings to have text scroll smoothly by without the long pause....

Thanks in anticipation

There is always the long text string technique. For example if you wanted something to read "Nice Job!" and repeat 3 times you could put in the string "Nice Job! Nice Job! Nice Job!" There wouldn't be any lag if you did it this way.
