I'm building a new ticker with a fairly wide box. Is it possible to have the text start after some % has been shown.

The current behavior is that the text does not wrap and start to scroll again until the text is completely exhausted off the side of the box. This leaves a blank box so that if someone comes in part way through they just see the very end and have to wait for a full wrap. It would be cool to say "Start again after text is 75% gone" So a line like:

"Our show will be staring soon ..."

Would show as;

"soon ... Our show will be starting"

and

"be starting soon ... Our show will"

Ticker box can not be wider than the screen does it ?
Text can be longer then the box hence its scroling along (ticker)

sure, calculate the time it takes for 75% of your text to scroll past (script) and send the text again (ticker set to add instead of replace)

if the text is of approx fixed length use it in a data source (2 rows with same text with a slicht difference say extra period or space) and auto-loop the datasource, adjust ticker speed and loop timer to your satisfaction (ticker set to add instead of replace)
