Hello!

I am trying to create an HTML Canvas animation that has a large block of text that is scrollable via draggable scrollbars. I remember this being really easy to do in the past in Flash, but cannot find how to make it work in Animate with HTML5. Seems like a simple of enough ask, but I am not finding any info on how to do or a source file where I can replicate the scrolling text. Can someone point me in the right direction and/or share an example fla where I can see how to do this.

 

I did come across one explanation that said to use the text/scrollable menu option, but for whatever reason "scrollable" is always grayed out for me...both in static and dynamic text.

 

Thanks for any and all help with this!

Grace

you'll need to create your own or hire someone to make one for you.  as3 has components that can do that, html5/canvas does not.
