Hi everyone.

I spent many hours solving my problem. What I need is: we (CZ) use money format 1 234,-. The space between thousands and hundreds should be narrower than numbers, let's say half wide. And I know that AE have not word spacing and I cannot assign more than one text style to text layer. Another option is using text animator. Before I will have to try the last option (composing 3 layers, 1-space-234) I want to ask you if there is a way to add Animator and control it with ExtendScript or there is some script solving smaller spaces or if you could share another fresh idea.

Thanks, Ondra

AE's Character tools have selection based controls. Highlight one of your spaces and reduce the width percentage. Then just copy that space and paste it other any others you have. - Free FX for amateur films - FX blog

Thank you for your response. Unfortunately I cannot just highlight and edit text via ExtendScript.
