hello everybody, i hope you are doing great.
I've used an expression for the property size of a rectangle in shape layer, that assign it the size of a text layer bounding box, as i use cs4, it is a basic expression that keeps reading the text layer which really slow down the computer, I've tried to control it with "if checkbox == 1, else" but it doesn't maintain the values it returned when i uncheck box. what to do ??

The only options I can thing of are to do it with a script (which you would need to run any time you change the text--or better yet, provide a text-entry UI for the script) or upgrade AE.
