ppt 2003, credits animation, is there a text amount limitation?

Ran about 10 paragraphs on a single slide hoping to loop as an intro. The
text is situated to run off the bottom of the page during the second
paragraph. Credit animation proceeds as normal, then stops at the beginning
of paragraph 3. My initial conclusion is that there is a limit to the amount
of text one can utilize for this animation. But I'd like to confirm that?

Also....if this limitation exists, is there another way anybody knows of to
make this work?

Thanks in advance!

If you are using credits(entrance) animation, you must put everything within
the slide to allow the text to scroll from below to top.

If you have many paragraph, there are several ways to go about it. One way
is to separate the paragraphs(lets say 5 paragraphs, one textbox). Now, you
will have two textbox.

Have them all within the slide and overlapping each other. Then, add credits
animation on both the textbox, with the second one as "After Previous".


Alternately, you can have make many slides, with all the textbox having
credits animation.
Then, go to Slide Show > Slide Transition. Under Advance slide, uncheck on
mouse click and put a checkmark on Advance slide(00:00) for those slides that
have the credits animation. This is to allow easy editing at a later time.

A simpler way which you might want to give it a try:
Have all 10 paragraphs on one textbox. Instead of using credits animation,
you can use crawl in. Drag it off the slide (to the top of the slide).
Direction should be from bottom. Set to the designated speed you want.
