Driving a slider with text.
on Jun 18, 2019 at 3:59:24 pm

So i am trying to make the classic 'resize a shape using a text layer' but the shape doesnt have a 'size' parameter in which to add the expression. Anyone know how i can do this?
I found a way using a slider that drives a null ( attached to a mask point, that can change the scale of the shape) but can i drive the slider using the text layer?

Hey Ian, most likely, if your shape is 'custom', the best approach would be scaling it based on the text size. However, seeing some visuals could help to get a taste of it. Cheers.
