i must create a horizontal, rolling text and my problem is, that the text is very long (maybe about 50 screens).

May someone tell me an easy way to edit such a long text, without using the mouse so often to edit?

Is it eventually possible, to convert a textblock into a "one line" text..?

Hope, you understand my problem. :(

Greetings Chris

You need to read up on how to use text layers! Here's where to begin:

And pay close attention to this line: "After Effects uses two kinds of text: point text and paragraph text. Point text is useful for entering a single word or a line of characters; paragraph text is useful for entering and formatting the text as one or more paragraphs."
