Particles cut off by layer's bounding box in CC

Hi - I have a compatibility issue between different AE versions, and I'm hoping that someone out there understands why...

I created an effect in CS5 where I have a text layer with a CC Particle Systems II effect. I checked the "Source Alpha Inheritance" option, making the particles emit from the text. The particles float off the characters and everything is dandy. But when I open the project in CC2015, I notice the particles will emit from the text as before, but they get cut off as they float outside the text layer's bounding box. Below is an image of my effect, with the CS5 view on top, and CC2015 view on the bottom - notice the particles get cut off at the top of the text, because they are floating upward.

Does anyone know of a reason for this change in Creative Cloud, or way to get around it? I appreciate any input you can give me.

Also... I need to do this all on one layer, I'm not looking to use a 3rd party plugin, and CC Particle World does not emit from the alpha channel of the layer. Thanks.
