Palms Divider

1.  Open up a new master Scrippy and insert a background.  Use psalm-bg.jpg.  Yes you are correct if you noticed I misspelled that word.

2.  Insert a positioned scroll.  Use the graphic called psalm-tall-log.jpg.  Layout vertical, scroll direction is up, pixels per second are 10, pixels per move is 1, smooth scroll, from the right at a distance of 210, and the bottoms are all zeros.

3.  Insert a second positioned scroll.  Use the same graphic as before and the settings are:  Vertical, up, 10 pixels per second, 1 pixel per move, smooth scroll and 210 from the left.

4.  Insert a third positioned scroll.  Use the graphic called psalm-wide-lg.jpg.  Choose horizontal, scroll direction is left, 10 pixels per second, 1 pixel per move and smooth scroll.  Set the position from the bottom and leave everything from that point on at zero.

5.  Insert a fourth positioned scroll and use the psalm-tall-lg.jpg again.  The settings are Layout Vertical, scroll direction is up, 10 pixels per second and 1 pixel per move, smooth scroll.  Set the position of this one from the right and leave all the numbers at zero.

6.  Insert a fifth positioned scroll and use the psalm-wide-lg.jp.  Set this one horizontal, scroll direction is left, 10 pixels per second and 1 pixel per move with a smooth scroll.  Set the position from the top and leave all of the numbers at zero.

7.  Insert the sixth and last positioned scroll using the psalm-tall-lg.jpg graphic.  Set this to Vertical, scroll direction up, 10 pixels per second and 1 pixel per move and click smooth scroll if it is not already checked.  The position is from the left with all numbers set at zero.

Where We Are
This is what you should now show on your master scrippy.

8.  Insert a positioned container.  Set the left and right edges at 220 each.  Set the top and bottom at 10.

Positioned Container Settings

9.  Now Click on Insert and choose a message area.  The margins for the message area are 5 on the top and 5 on the right.  10 on the left and 10 on the bottom.

10.  Click on the background up top and then go to insert and insert a positioned container.  Make it 15 from the left and Centered at 0.  This image below is cut apart and pasted back sideways here to save room but you should be aware that the Vertical Layout in the scrippy is underneath the horizontal layout.  I don't want anyone to get confused.

Second Positioned Container

11.  Under that positioned container, insert a positioned image.  Use the graphic main-left.jpg.  As the default settings should be centered for both, just check to see that it is centered and all of the numbers should be zero.

12.  Click on background again and insert another positioned container.  The settings for this one are 15 from the right and centered vertically with those numbers being 0.  Make sure that this container and the last one has 'same as largest contained image' checked.

Positioned Container

13.  Insert a positioned image under this container and use the main-right.jpg image.  The settings should all be centered with all numbers at zero.

Where We Are
This is what the bottom half of your scrippy should look like now.

14.  Insert your ticker, your loading message and your sound and that's it!  The sound provided is myla.mid.

CONGRATULATIONS!  YOU'RE DONE!
