You can set the speed (duration) in the properties.

Re: Marquee with Safari

I know i can set the duration, but it already is filled with value 5000 and if I make it longer (10.000 for instance) then it takes a long time before the marquee starts showing text and the speed is still very fast...

So I am wondering what value I should enter to make the Marquee readable (I uploaded the test site with the 5000 duration value)

The higher the value, the longer it will take for the animation to complete, so it will be slower.

Hi Pablo, I understand.

I don't want to take too much of your time, but i bought the WWB15 version yesterday especially to get the marquee function working properly. That is why I am asking you this:
Could you create a .wbs file with only a small Marquee that works in an acceptable speed in 'Chrome' and in 'Safari'?
(this way I can compare your version with my version to find out what I am doing wrong)

If so, could you put the following text line in it?

Vermijd handcontact 6) Corona verschijnselen? Verzet de afspraak!

I would be very grateful if you could do this for me!

The speed depends on the duration of the animation. The longer the text, the faster it will scroll.
There is no other setting in HTML to control the speed.

So, to make the text run slower:
- increase the duration
or
- decrease the length of the text

You are not doing anything wrong. This is just how it works.

I am trying to understand so please let met sum things up:

The Marquee I originally defined (no CSS) worked great in Chrome, Opera, Edge etc.. The scroll speed was OK and the complete text was shown. Safari however did not show it the same way (abbreviated the text) so i purchased WWB 15 so it would work OK on Safari too.

Now I understand that in the WWB 15 way of showing the Marquee (CSS) the large text size makes the marquee scroll faster to the point that it is unreadable (which it did not do in my original setup).

From your last remark I conclude that there is no solution for showing a large text in a Marquee and still keeping the scroll speed "acceptable". The only thing I can do is to make the text shorter (which in this case is not a solution because "every word in the message counts")

Is this a fair resume of my situation?
Or am I missing a possible solution?

To slow down the animation, please increase the duration.

Also, note that old marquee is also still available in WB15.

To slow it down to a "normal" speed (so you can actually read the text) i had to increase the duration to 30.000 !!!
As a result it takes the Marquee more than 12 seconds to start showing the text (i guess you agree that's not really acceptable)

By the way: You spoke of the 'old marquee'
Is that the marquee option from the toolbox with the Advanced 'Type' = <marquee>?
Or is there a newer marquee option i am not aware of?

(sorry to keep bothering you with all my questions but i would really like to wrap things up with an acceptable solution; i hope you understand)

Sorry, that is how it works. The duration affects the entire animation.

In the properties of the Marquee you can set the typo to 'css' or <marquee>.
<marquee> activates the old behavior.

Have you considered using the News Feed Ticker object as an alternative? If your message consists of more than one topic you can use that object to give a rolling message. Have a look at how I have implemented it on https://www.stowaways.org.uk/ - there are only two lines at the moment due to the present Covid-19 situation, but you can have more.
