Re: New line based on width text expression

I can only think of a rather complicated solution which involves measuring the individual letters widths one by one outside of the timeline. It is bound to be slow if done that way. Perhaps it would make more sense to measure the letters beforehand and create a table from which to calculate the actual length of the line based on characters and their widths with an expression. The kerning values would likely have to be approximated, I don't know how that is implemented in AE.
