  1. Regarding the Text effect demonstrated in the Dec 2018 part 2 webinar, there is another way to wrap text without using a text file … use the \n string, such as … Merry\nChristmas. As of xLights 2018.61, only the first 6 lines of text in the file are used. You can also put the \n string in the text file to get even more text displayed.
