Could you be any less descriptive? :)

i have a script that will open notepad and scroll a lot of text into the document but the speed of which the text appears is too fast. How do I slow down the speed of the appearing text?

Considering we don't know how your sending it, I will assume that it's send() ... look at Opt('SendKeyDelay') in the help file.

@JoshDB... :) that's bright to encourage non descriptive posts asking for help leaving us with nothing but a guessing game on what they really want, not even a script to show what they are doing.

AutoItSetOption ("SendKeyDelay", 100)
AutoItSetOption ("WinWaitDelay", 1)
AutoItSetOption ("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)
AutoItSetOption ("TrayIconDebug", 1)

Run("notepad")
WinWait("Notepad")
Send("i have a script that will open notepad and scroll a lot of text into the document but the speed of which the text appears is too fast. How do I slow down the speed of the appearing text?" & @CRLF & @CRLF)

ControlSend("Notepad", "", "Edit1", "i have a script that will open notepad and scroll a lot of text into the document but the speed of which the text appears is too fast. How do I slow down the speed of the appearing text?" & @CRLF & @CRLF)

ControlSetText("Notepad", "", "Edit1", "i have a script that will open notepad and scroll a lot of text into the document but the speed of which the text appears is too fast. How do I slow down the speed of the appearing text?")
...but like Sm0ke_N said - we can only assume that you are sending the text using the "Send" or ControlSend function.

Edit: to mention ControlSend and ControlSetText

Note that the Opt setting does not change ControlSetText

When you get another 4100+ posts under your belt, you might understand...

Why didn't you at least post the "Opt" answer along with your commentary?

Sorry, I didn't mean offense. I'm against crappy non-descriptive posts, but it was just being funny.

Then be careful how you use the "idiot" emoticon. It is hard to tell if you are referring to yourself in jest or calling the person that you quoted an idiot for making the post.

Consider the various ways that this could be interpreted:

Could you be more sarcastic? Idiot!
