    Additional Note: David Lublin posted a solution to adding a scrollable text field on the VDMX Facebook Group page (see attached). However, I don't know how this solution, which involves connecting the FileInput Port to a Make Text Layer object, can be integrated into your patch. Please let me know if you can add this in. Thanks!! Randall

    Thanks Jean Marie! It works great, very smooth. However it didn't have a field for changing the text. I added one (see VDMX attachment and updated Vuo file below) by creating a new Published Port on the Make Text Image object, but had to move the patchcord from Value Changes to the main inlet of Make Text Image. Few questions: (1) the text field doesn't enlarge when you add more than two lines of text, making it a bit tricky to edit, is it possible to have a scrollbar on the text field, maybe this is a VDMX question? (2) is it possible to turn off the looping so it only scrolls once? (3) When you trigger a second instance there is a brief pause before it switches, is this unavoidable? (4) Is there any way to flag the end of the text in VDMX so you can use that to trigger another instance or perhaps another event? This is great!! Randall

    Bodysoulspirit... thanks for the new version of the Big Text Scroll. This one loads in VDMX and has all the appropriate controls, but the text doesn't show up in the VDMX window. It works fine though with the Vuo Window. I'm quite new at Vuo so I am not sure what tweaking would be involved in getting it to work.

    Thank you Jean Marie! I just installed the Community Edition of Vuo and yes, the Big Scroll works great in Vuo. However, when I loaded it into a media bin in VDMX, I received an error message (see attachment). It looks like it is ready for VDMX since it has all the appropriate Image Generator inputs and outputs. Is there anything else that needs to be changed to the patch to make it compatible with VDMX?

    When I opened the document 'Big Text Scrol IG.vuo' in version 1.28, many of the input/outputs were not connected and a few had hatch marks. Does this patch only work in Version 2.0?
