Change all text layers text to, from script
on Jul 5, 2019 at 8:23:34 pm

Hello, I have a huge project with lots of compositions and text layers, I need to change all the texts in all compositions at once so I don't lose horrible 20 minutes of my life doing it manually.

All the text layers are renamed as "text1" if that helps.

Any ideas?

Sergio - does all text layers should contain the same 'text string' during update, or it can vary?

The simplest way is:
1. Loop through all comps in the project.
2. Find 'text layer' type of layers.
3. If their name matches to 'text1' - update text source.
