Thanks for the script got it working easily enough
Quick question.
Say I have 2 Marquees.
Track & Artist. If one is shorter than the other they sort of get out of sync. Is it possible to have them stay in sync or if not is it possible to have multiple lines in one marquee?

Cheers

I guess it's not a huge problem when it comes to a marquee, but I decided to mention it. I ended up editing it to make it restart when it reached the end before I realized that fixing the align would resolve the issue.

Besides that hiccup on my part, this script will be very useful for some projects of mine. Thanks! :D
Hello! I know its been a long time, but I wondered if there was a solution to the right align problem. As i really need it! :)

Hello :) Just wondered if this ever got fixed.

Nope... but in the 11 years since this was posted, changes to Rainmeter allow for other ways to achieve marquees.

Have look at this method by raiguard: Simple Text Marquee

I actually tired that one in the link, it works great for left alignment, but again, messes up with right or center alignment. Thank you though for your reply :)
