I think he means smooth scrolling, not block by block scrolling.  Both can be done with the Copy() command, but when the letters get to the edge with smooth scrolling, they disappear suddenly.  You can fix that by copying the non-text part of the screen to the back buffer, using the Horizontal Scroll command, and then copying the buffer back, but that's more complicated and can't always be done.

Personally if I want to draw text out of the screen, I migth just use custom fonts or something, so it won't end up too complicated if I do not have a lot of text to display or if I am using a routine to display it all. But I guess your tricks could work too (with Copy() and stuff)
