Animating two words at once using bsed on word

I have great animated text but I want to fly two words on the screen at once for this. Eg. Carpet - Air Duct - Chimney Cleaning. I would like to animate Carpet, then "Air Duct", and lastly "Chimney Cleaning"...

Maybe for Chimney Cleaning there can be vintage drawing or woodcut of a chimney sweep in a top hat.

If you're looking for inspiration for animating there's nothing better than using the words literally. Carpet - flying carpet; air duct - words blow in; Chimney - words reveal in a puff of smoke

??

are you using a text animation preset or text animators?

if so, twirl down the text layer's properties... there is a setting in 'more options' for 'anchor point grouping' and another in animator>range selector>advanced called 'based on' that both give you options to define either grouping or selection based on characters, words and lines.

my assumptions is that one or both need to be set to 'lines' to get the effect you are after.

another option is to break them up into separate text layers and affect each individually using transform properties.

also, it might help to know which preset was used, or what the text animator is doing... if that is what you are using.
