Hi everyone,

Just joined up hoping someone can help me out with a frustrating problem I can't find away around.

I have a text header which I have animated along a path, key framing first margin. I want to add some highlights to the text so I created a white solid, masked out the highlights and parented it to the text layer thinking it would follow but it stays in the same place.

I have also tried parenting the position of a null to the texts first margin keyframes and then parenting my highlight layer to the null, now this at least moves the layer but it is not staying lined up with the text.

If anyone has an idea of how I could so this I would really appreciate it.
