Your onload scene action is set to start Timeline ‘none’ you need to set it to ‘box’

Thanx Mark, i have set it to “box” - [screenshot][1]

now the text is appearing all at once in the Preview, and is not playing in loop, acting differently from the result i get when Playing it in Hype: http://screencast.com/t/gTmvzjeNho

Do you have another good advice for me?

Check your keyframes. You have Instant and start at 100% opacity, without giving a 0 opacity first.

At the end of the animation, add a timeline action telling it to play the timeline again if you want to loop?

Since you want instant you can use the display property.

To get the blinking on and off in this is slightly counter intuitive. I had to set all the text hidden on the main TL. and start hidden on the box TL jump to visible and then hidden again. It’s late and I am tired so I may be missing something obvious here. I don’t remember it being that fiddly…

Oh Mark, thank you very much for being so fiddly. Seeing the changes you have made showed me where i was messing things.
