Hey, I'm trying to make an animation for a speciefic part of my text set by Expression Selector. And using Range Selector I can only choose between characters, words and lines. Unfortunately, there is no "whole text" option.
Animating every single property(color, stroke, scale, opacity, tracking etc.) isn't what I want.
That's that is gonna be animated(just in case): myChar = "$";
if (text.sourceText[textIndex-1] == myChar) 100 else 0
Maybe replace spaces somehow that they won't count as spaces or something. I hope you can help me out and think of the workaround.
Can you please explain why underscores are used in the second example? Is it automatically passed/generated text and you need to replace underscores?
Because, you say such behaviour should be done for spaces - but how spaces can be 'colored' and 'scaled'?
Anyways, the expression you have should be placed not into 'Range Selector'. Delete it from the layer, then add 'Expression Selector' from Text Animation panel and apply this expression to 'Amount'. It should work.
