However I have arranged this text in a pre comp making patterns with the text. I have varying lengths of text eg, "Now" short line and "Next Wednesday" long line. I want the same drop down menu to determine the which precomp is turned on using the same expression. I had thought adding, "||" meaning "or" might work:
It doesn't throw any errors but the value of transparency is always 100 even if the String setting is not matched in the dropdown menu! it seems like it should be simple, I can't work out what I have missed.
TL;DR: My "or" condition doesn't seem to work in my expression.
