Change style of selected word
on May 7, 2020 at 2:13:11 pm


I'm trying to change the font of a selected word in a text layer, useing a slider control to select the word.
I was hoping this could be done with the new style expressions like style.setFont, but with my limited knowledge of expressions I'm
not succeeding. Do I use the expression selector to select word? And if so, how would I use a style expression on only that word?

Any help or advice is greatly appreciated
Thanks in advance.

It's not yet possible to set style for a part of the layer. You can only change the style for the entire layer.

If you only try to make your text bold or italic you can add an animator with stroke, respectively skew. But that is about it.
