I would like to know if there is an easy way to format multiple columns in rolling credits.
I know the hard way, which is to type spaces and line up the text by eye.

I tried making a Word document with columns and cut/paste to Power Director 18 but it did not work.

-Thank you.

Are you using one of the canned "Title" templates for the ending credits or creating your own?

Any reason that just a copy and paste of the text box and have 2 or 3 columns will not work for you? Left align the first, center the second and right align the third or whatever you desire. Just keep them the same length so the scroll the same.

Hi Wayne -

Here are 2 templates based on Jeff's suggestion... but each column is left justified (easily adjustable).

2 column scrolling credits

3 column scrolling credits
