    Marquee tool has a useful new upgrade. Text Assistant will allow you to survey all of your fonts to see how well they appear in your matrix. You can then survey your selected font in all sizes to see which size is best. And finally arrange your letters how you want them to move for generating a clipboard file. Does not have to be in a straight line. All color and masking modes are available to make the letters dark on a light background or lit letters on a dark background. [/size]

    [SIZE=small]Trying again. That is kinda funny that my post about selecting the correct font size for scrolling text came out with unreadable font size. This forum has some hiccup with extraneous end size tags. Cant get rid of them. I find the tags are out of order with end font before the end size tags. [/SIZE]

    Marquee version 3.4.2 has been released. This adds the ability to set the line spacing on multi-line scrolling text. Try the spacing setting and see the change immediately. Now you can flip the direction of the scroll on the fly.
    I have added a PIP picture in picture box option to set the bounds for text within the matrix. This can help for 360 trees which wrap around. Program now scales correctly if you have your display set to a larger font size.
    If there is a way to embed a video link, I havent found it.
