# Pattern marquee

This guide describes setting up a Pattern marquee section.

Use the section to display an area, on a page, with an animated moving/scrolling pattern.

The previous video shows a (default) Pattern marquee section on a store’s Contact page. The section is displayed above the Footer section. An animation moves the section’s triangular pattern from left to right. The section menu is displayed on the left. To increase the size of the pattern, the Pattern size slider is adjusted from 12px to 42px (pixels)

For general guidance with modifying sections, refer to Sections overview, and Shopify help: Sections and blocks (opens new window)
