    Default How to animate text?

    Hi, i am newcomer to this sort of thing. i have downloaded all the help files and looked through the included Help files for MX Fireworks 2004. i am still unable to find how to animate the text inside a text box. i have selected the text box with the text in it, clicked on the modify tab at the top, clicked Animation, then Animation selection. now i dont know what to do. i want the text in the box to 'disappear' a letter a second on a smooth line out of the side of the text box, then appear back in its original place and do it over and over again. hopefully u understand that ;) and helpful guides / links anyone can give me would be extremely helpful.

    Thanks in advance...:)

    There are a lot of technotes on animation at the Macromedia Web site:

    http://www.macromedia.com/support/fireworks/animation.html

    The "How to create an animated symbol and insert it into a Fireworks"
    demonstrates how to do a scrolling text animation. It's for an older
    version of Fireworks but can still be done the same way in the current
    version.
