Scrolling pattern

This guide describes setting up a Scrolling pattern section.

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

The previous video shows a Scrolling pattern section on a store page. An animation is applied to the section's triangular pattern. Theme editor's section menu is displayed in the upper left. To increase the size of the pattern, the menu's Pattern size slider is adjusted from 12px to 24px (pixels).

For general guidance with modifying sections, refer to Sections overview, and Shopify help: Sections and blocks.
