I am just seeing this post, so I am responding in case someone else has this problem.
I had two text and effects that I was trying to use. One would stop and the other would keep going and going (like the Energizer bunny).
I am not sure if this is the best way, but this is what I did.
1. Add text
2. Add effect
3. Add "Place" to each effect
How to add Place ( go under "add effect"- "emphasis"-"place").
4. Once you add "Place" you must stop them both at the same place on the timeline or one will stop and the other will keep going. For example: In the timeline if text #1 stops at 120, then text #2 must stop at 120. If text #1 stops at 115 and text #2 at 120, text # 1 will continue to loop.
Hope it helps. More importantly, I hope it makes sense. Here is my example http://www.mindyourbusiness.net/hojtest.html
