after click ok
Although I've followed all the steps desribed in LO help, Scrolling doesn't start. I don't know, if this is a bug or a lack of documentation, but situation should be improved => NEW

Scrolls nicely with Impress but not with Writer. Don't see the use case and if it worked at all in the past. Xisco, can you check with some ancient version please?

the working method for creating running text in the calc module is the same as with writer, so there has to be a different in the source code, right?
the running text in calc is still o.k.
I can reproduce in:

It was a hell of a dance, but in 5.1 oldest it was good, I think this caused it:

format->name and remove the name/description and it appears to work. Presumably adding a name/description back in the past also paused/stopped it. As to *why* a name stops/pauses it though is odd.
in ViewContactOfSdrObj::embedToObjectSpecificInformation if the shape as a name then its put inside an ObjectInfoPrimitive2D which seems to have the effect of disabling the scrolling
caolanm->alg: any ideas what the right solution there should be ?
Primitive2DReference createTextPrimitive has a "scrolling needs an encapsulating clipping primitive" comment which maybe suggests that ObjectInfoPrimitive2D should (somehow) be inserted below that container in the animated case
not writer-specific in the sense that if a Title/Description is added in e.g. calc the same problem arises
