any way to format text linked to another source?
on Mar 24, 2014 at 10:47:15 am

hi,
i'm working on a weather project and i'm facing a problem. I have some comps with the cities and temperatures and i want to add the Celsius degree symbol at the end of the temperature number(you know, the small upper zero next to the degree). The temperature number is linked with an expression in source text to get the number from another layer (something like comp("france info").layer("t11").text.sourceText). i can't find a way to add the temperature sign next. any ideas?

Unless I'm missing something, I think in your source text expression after the number input + "°"

I had to look it up, but it's hold down alt and type in on the number keypad 0186, º
