Creating a text field effect
on Aug 23, 2017 at 3:00:56 pm

Hi there

Is there any way to create a type effect where you input new text into an existing? Basically, I'm recreating a web interface where the user is adding new text into an existing field that already has some text. So the existing text needs to move further right/down as the new content is added at the beginning of the line.

I know it can be done by moving the elements individually but I was wondering if there's an easier way to do this.

Thanks for any help.

It can be done pretty easily with the Typewriter animation preset. Play around with the controls to get what you want. Make sure the paragraph setting is left-justified.

Hi Dave

Thanks for the suggestion. I did think of using text animators to start with but somehow didn't see how to work it out.
It works well enough now.

Thanks!
