Bouncing Text WS2812b Function problem Right shift

i did run in some trouble as i loose 1COL on the right sight on shifting
the Funktion shoudt take the color of led last i the row-1 to the last one
and so on but i messed up some as i loose one row that i cand access
Better to Run pixel by pixel i guess

void shiftToLeft(int counts){
  int ledpos=0; 
  for (int row=0;row<7;row++){
      for (int col =0;col< NUM_LEDS_PER_STRIP-2;col++){
         ledpos = (row*NUM_LEDS_PER_STRIP)+col ;
void shiftToRight(int counts){
 int ledpos=NUM_LEDS; 
  for (int row=7;row>0;row--){
      for (int col= 0;col<NUM_LEDS_PER_STRIP ;col++){
         ledpos = (row*NUM_LEDS_PER_STRIP)-col ;

I did not look at your full code (on a cell phone).

Is it possible that the spacing between the characters plays a role?

Looks like you're missing two pixels at the right, not one.
