Text Parameters

The Text Parameters plug-in offers the designer the possibility to animate text parameters, as standard text parameters in the Text Editor cannot be animated. The parameters for the Text Parameters can only be used for animation.

The settings are not visible on the text until an animation update has been made.

Note: This plug-in is located in: Built Ins -> Container plug-ins -> Tools
