Find layers which are linked to property by expression
on Sep 10, 2019 at 8:00:56 am

Hey guys, I wonder is there a straightforward way to find all layers which are linked to a specific property by expression?

For example, a list of layers in some form, which are connected to a Slider, controlling their appearance.

1. Thought about deleting it, and undoing, but this does not populate instantly unless comps are opened.
2. Scripting based, to go through the properties and look for a match?

Thanks!

you could look at the pt_ExpressEdit plugin, it has a search feature for expressions, you might be able to get some ideas from how that works.
