Boris RED: maximum text length ?

Yep, still using RED 5.6....
I have a text track and pasted a very long string of text, meant to crawl for about 2 minutes.
Apparently the text box will truncate at a specific length corresponding to about '9200' on the built-in ruler.
Is that a hard limit or am I missing a feature ?
How to circumvent for my long crawling text ?

Hi there,

Yep, I believe you've encountered a limitation in RED but not to worry - you can use multiple text pages to get around the problem. So paste as much as you can onto a single page, then paste the rest onto additional pages. The Title Crawl automation should seamlessly join the text pages into the title animation.
