Scrolling headlines for reception area

I want to have in our reception area a LCD monitor scrolling and promoting our services as a company - I would assume a simple PowerPoint would work.

Is there a way I can display news headlines in this presentation as well. Any thoughts and suggestions would be appreciated!

Hello,

these days, you should always mention your version of Office, since there are considerable differences between the versions in use right now.

The following file can be found on Echo_S's website. It works for PPT 2003 and probably for later versions, too.

http://www.echosvoice.com/PPTFiles/crawl2.ppt

The instructions in the file are:

Create a textbox
Right-click the textbox and go to Format¿TextBox
In the Textbox tab, deselect “wrap” if it’s selected
In the Textbox tab, select “Resize Autoshape to fit text.”
This gets rid of any extra “textbox” to the right of the text
Type in the text to crawl across the page
Copy the textbox, Paste in the copy, and align the two textboxes so they’re on top of each other
Drag the textboxes off the left edge of the slide


cheers, teylyn

There's actually more instrux in the file from my website. I think Teylyn copied the info from just the first slide.

That said, I must confess I forgot that file was even up there. :-)
