Animated Text properties can be edited in the Design View by clicking on the animated text in the timeline or on the canvas. In the Title tab you can rename the animated text and in the drop down menu you can edit its size, rotation and location. The Style tab allows you to edit the style, shape and color of the animated text. The Text and Effect tab opens the Text Animator window; here you can customize your animated text’s features (e.g. font, size, animation, etc.).
Set the following properties and options for Animated Texts:
The default name for an animated text area is 'Text Animation X' ('Text Animation 1', 'Text Animation 2', 'Text Animation 3', and so onward), and this is visible in the name property of the object. You can change an animated text's name by deleting the default name and typing in another one. Ensure the animated text is selected before attempting to change its name property.
- Rotate, Scale and Location
Adjust the rotational angles, scale or manually change the location of the
animated text on the Canvas. Rotations on the X and Y-axis are ignored when
the animated text is attached to the image.
The style property allows you to change the appearance of the Animated Text Area. Check the box 'Apply to all texts' at the bottom of the style properties menu to apply chosen style to all Animated Texts in all scenes in the movie.
- Text and Effect
The text property allows you to customize text formatting options such as font, font size, font color, text alignment and also to choose a text effect.
