I searched up and down for a solution to this - I couldn't find anything. Hopefully its a simple fix.

I am trying to put together a scrolling show title. I'd like to have, "Show title ♥ " scroll continuously (essentially "Show title ♥ Show title ♥ Show title ♥ " etc.)

When I try to implement, I get, "Show title ♥ " and then it scrolls off the screen, then restarts the same scroll after the title disappears. I know I could repeat it a number of times, but our show runs for up to two hours and I can't imagine pasting it that many times would be resource efficient.

How can I achieve what seems like this relatively simple goal? Appreciate any help.

Create a 2 row datasource , set it to AutoNext and loop
connect datasource to ticker and set ticker Settings Type to add

Really appreciate this, Doggy. One item that confounded me until I figured it out - the rows in the datasource (I used Excel) needed to be different in order for the loop to work. I achieved what I needed by starting the first data row with a space and eliminated a space from the second row. That kept my spacing uniform while allowing the data source to loop.

Thanks for the help!
