Add scrolling text to your scene

There are plenty of ways where a long string of text can come in handy. Someone donating a particularly long and meaningful message, a list that acknowledges your loyal supporters, social media information—the sky is the limit. But having all that onscreen during a stream can clutter up your scene.

This is where scrolling text can come in handy, so your text can have one long horizontal place in your scene, and the text can be as long as you need it to be.

To start, go into Scene Editor, then select Add Widget > General > Text.

Start playing around with the size and position of your text box. Make sure to enable Snapping (the second icon along the top that looks like four squares) and make use of the grid lines to position your text box exactly where you want it.

Once that's in place, you can play around with the text options too. Paste in the text that you need in the Text field, adjust font size, font, and color, and specify how fast you want the text to scroll, and whether you want it to go from right to left or vice versa.

Now that you're all set up, all that's left is to Save and Test, and make sure your text is scrolling correctly with your settings.
