How can I script features of the characters panel?
on Sep 5, 2017 at 4:58:35 pm

I can select part of the text of a text layer and then go to the "Character panel" and change fonts, font size, etc. Notice that the text is contained in only one layer.

How can I achieve the same using script? Is it possible to change the fonts, color, etc of part of my text in a layer using ExtendScript?

Thank you in advance.

Nope. Ae scripting can only address an entire text block ("TextDocument" object) at a time.
