Adding text with 2 different colors to the Essential Graphics Panel

Hi guys. So im trying to add a simple text with 2 different colors in the Essential Graphics Panel in AE to then edit in Premiere Pro. Once I import the mogrt
file into Pr the text is only ONE color. Does multiple colors not work in the EGP? Here is the example below. Thanx for any help provided.

The only way I know how to do that is to use text animators. You can set them to select by word. You could use expression control effects to tie the text animator selectors for the color change to those sliders and then expose those sliders in the EGP for Premiere users.

That's brilliant. Could've used this a few days ago on a project that had lots of 3- and 4-word supers with a single word highlighted in another color. I had to do each of them in AE, but this is a very elegant solution. Bravo.
